      awesome combination Tamang Heritage trail & Langtang Valley with Kritam

      Again I went hiking with Nepaltrekkingexperts (every time again). The competent help of Rajesh helped a lot in finding a suitable trek for me as well as finding the perfect (porter)guide for me – Kritam.
      This time I started with the Tamang Heritage trail which is mostly cultural interesting. Lots of monastries, Tamang people with traditional cloths (the beautiful hats of the Tamang women), and sometimes a glimp of a snowy mountain. Thanks to Kritam, my guide, I learned a lot about the surrounding and the history of the Tamang people. We were very lucky to see puja’s and traditional dances at the monastries – just awesome. Although you stay under the 3000m during this trek, this trail is still demanding because you have to ascent and descent qutie some meters every day. It is a shame that not so much people hiking this trek – you will see glimpses of snowy mountains and the Langtang Mountain Range at Nagthali viewpoint. You will also see lots of monastries, sacred lakes, as well as Tamang people in traditional clothes. And you will hike in a green scenery with bananas, oranges, and fresh lemons directly from the tree.
      And if you have a very good guide like I did, you will hear lots of interesting information.
      From the Tamang Heritage Trail we easily switched to the Langtang Valley and hiked up to Kyanjin Gumba where we did some dayhikes. Again I learned a lot from Kritam about the mountains around the valley.
      The combination of these two treks as well as a good guide was just awesome. I learned so much, and very important, the whole trek I felt save.
      Thank you, Rajesh, for all the help and organization during my stay in Nepal – everything was just perfect.
      Thank you, Kritam, for your support, your knowledge about the treks and the scenery, the interesting talks we had and the jokes we made. We were a good team, and I always felt save with you. Everybody with you as the guide can be happy!
