Life is short and the world is wide, lying north of the Kathmandu Valley, the Tamang Heritage Trek provides you with the opportunity to truly immerse yourself in the local culture of one of Nepal’s few authentic hill tribes high on the border with Tibet. It is a unique trek, one that allows an intimate experience of a very different way of life. Stay in traditional Tamang villages set within some of the most beautiful scenery in the country—trek through terraced green farmland, wind up into thick forests and marvel at the peaks of the Langtang Himalayas. Stay in local homes and lodges where all accommodation, lodging, and food are offered at local houses on a rotational basis allowing the whole community to benefit and not just one or two enterprising families
The Tamang people are a hardy race, originally horse traders who came from Tibet several hundred years ago. They settled in the hilly parts of Nepal within proximity of the Kathmandu Valley which acted as a good market for them at the time. They have retained their own distinct identity with strong Tibetan roots as well as their language. Historically they have been one of the most marginalized ethnic groups in Nepal. Unfortunately, they were among some of the worst-affected groups of people during the 2015 earthquake as their homes tended to be in vulnerable areas which were cut off from help. Tamang Heritage Trek not only provides people with a more remote and unique experience very different from the more familiar major trekking regions of Nepal but also helps bring a vital source of income to the Tamang people. The Tamang Heritage Trekking is a moderate seven-day trek that is likely to appeal to people wanting something a bit different away from the crowds.
