Overview

Tamang Heritage Trekking is one of the nearest treks from Kathmandu which highlights an ancient lifestyle of local people living in the area and combines with the picturesque sceneries and healing baths in natural hot springs. The region is connected to Tibet. It was once the popular trade used by traders who used to export goods from Tibet. The culture and tradition of people living in the area are found to be similar to the Tibetans. During the Tamang Heritage Trekking, you will explore the unspoiled and virtually untouched culture of Tamang people, their life, crafts, and nature. The region offers different wildlife including bears, leopards, red panda and musk deer. You can see different blooming flowers along with different species of trees, birds, butterflies during the months of March and April. You will experience the exciting views of different mountains such as Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal, and Tibetan mountains.
