Tamang Heritage Trail

8 Days

Tamang Heritage Trail is a new experience for the trekkers exploring the beauty of mountains with the culture of local Tamang people. We trek through Tamang villages with their life and culture.

We will receive hearty welcome by the locals rich in their separate costumes, architecture of their mountain houses and antique monasteries. It offers you wilderness experience through beautiful landscapes of alpine terrain; flat meadows and rhododendron forests.

The population of this area are believed to be the off spring of Tibetans from Kerung who intermingled with Tamang of the Helambu area. Tamang communities are generally found on higher elevations with the peasants charming in variable farming and taking out of forest products.

They are mainly sheep and yak herders but grow some grains and vegetables. Their daily life activities comprise raising domestic animals, agriculture and trade with Kerung in Tibet. They also weave baskets and mats from bamboo.

During the trekking we enjoy the impressive views of Langtang Lirung Langtang Kerung, Chimse Danda ridge crossed by Ganjala Pass Dorje Lakpa Jugal Himal, Paldor peak, Ganesh Himal and Manaslu Himal.

Best Time For Tamang Heritage Trail Trek

When preparing for the Tamang Heritage Trail Trek, it’s crucial to consider the impact of seasons. The weather conditions, climate patterns, humidity, air, and wind precipitation can significantly influence your trekking experience. Therefore, it’s essential to communicate the time of year you plan to travel to ensure proper preparation and adjustment of your Tamang Heritage Trail Trek.

Autumn:

The Tamang Heritage Trail Trek in Nepal is best undertaken during the autumn season, spanning from September to November. This period boasts stable weather characterized by mild temperatures, clear blue skies, and dry conditions, providing optimal visibility for enjoying the scenic surroundings. Additionally, the low levels of rain and wind make trekking during this season more comfortable and manageable.

Autumn begins immediately after the monsoon season, resulting in dry landscapes and eliminating slippery terrains that can pose challenges during treks. This season showcases vibrant foliage and provides clear views of mountains, green forests, and villages, making it a popular time for trekking. However, due to these favorable conditions, the route to Tamang Heritage in the Langtang Region can be crowded.

Spring:

Spring season, spanning from March to May, offers optimal conditions for trekking the Tamang Heritage Trail. Similar to Autumn, this period ensures stable weather and clear visibility due to the prevalence of clear skies and minimal cloud cover. It is considered a prime time for trekking enthusiasts seeking an immersive experience along the Tamang Heritage Trail.

In spring, vibrant flowers blossom, and the lush forests regain their greenery, creating a stunning landscape in the region. Embark on an exhilarating trek during this season, combining the breathtaking scenery with the excitement of the journey for an unforgettable experience.

Trekking season peaks during this time, leading to crowded routes that may pose challenges for trekkers. The increased popularity of trekking during this season contributes to constant overcrowding on the trails.

More Info - Good to know before you travel

What Is The Difficulty Level Of Tamang Heritage Trail Trek?

Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is not a short trek to be easy. It is a multi-day trekking trip which has an easy to moderate difficulty level. You will reach over 2239 meters above sea level, which might not be challenging. The trail comes with rugged terrains and landscapes but with proper preparations and planning, it is easier to complete. On average, Tamang Heritage Trail Trek comes with ‘moderate’ difficulty.

As the highest altitude you will reach is 2239 meters above at Briddhim, you might not require a crucial look out for altitude sickness and related illnesses such as HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema), and HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema).

Apart from that, the route to the Tamang Heritage is sloppy and slippery, so you must be conscious about your trek in such landscapes. Especially, if you are trekking in the off seasons like monsoon and winter, the hike might be challenging. The heavy rainfall during monsoon will make the trail wet and slippery while the low temperature during winter might be challenging.

What Permits Do I Need To Do This Trek?

To trek to the Tamang Heritage Trail, trekkers must obtain Langtang National Park Entry Permit. As the route to this trail borders Langtang National Park, you will need to acquire the mentioned permit.

You can get the permit either from Nepal Tourism Board in Kathmandu or from Dhunche Checkpost in Rasuwa. The average cost of Langtang National Park Entry Permit for international trekkers is NPR. 3000 per person. Similarly, trekkers from SAARC Nations and Nepal must pay NPR. 1000 and NPR. 100 per person to get this permit.

Tamang Heritage Trail – Alternatives 

It is possible to combine the Tamang Heritage Trail with the Langtang Valley Trek and/or Gosainkund Trek. Continue on to Lama Hotel for the Langtang Valley Trek instead of going back from Briddim to Syabrubesi. This takes you to the valley entrance, then continue at the end of the valley to Kyanjin Gompa.

This trek has spectacular, broad views from a wide valley of the Langtang Himalayas. Return to Thulo Syabru by backtracking, then stop at Syabrubesi. This would add up to the walk for three or four days.

The Gosainkund Trek is another excellent (and more challenging) trek in this area, often combined with the Langtang Valley trek, and can be added for an extended adventure to the Tamang Heritage Trail. Because of Lake Gosainkund’s altitude (4,379 m/14,370 ft.), the ascent up to here should only be attempted on the Langtang return trip, not on the way, to help acclimatization. Gosainkunda trekking will add another three days on the trek.
