The Tamang Heritage Trekking is a relatively newer trekking trail. It combines Nature and Cultural Trek, locates in the Langtang region. The trail provides us with ample natural experience of High Mountain and beautiful landscape. 

The region shares a border with Tibet. Therefore, people from this region follow Tibetan culture and practice. It seems the Tibet exists in outside of Tibet. From this area, people have a unique religion and identity which has not been dominated by outer culture yet.

The Tamang Heritage Trekking starts after having a day heritage sightseeing tour in Kathmandu, then a day drive to the trekking point, Syabrubesi. Entire our journey will be worthwhile and get a chance to be acquainted with nature, mountain and of course with the culture and people of this region.

We prepared a day to day itinerary, which may meet with your available holiday. If this does not match with your available time or would like to customize it, we will be more than glad to modify it.
