Overview

Tamang Heritage Trekking

Tamang Heritage trekking with Langtang valley is one of the stirring trekking destinations. Like any other Tibetan highlands, the Langtang region has tranquil rural scenery and the rich cultural heritage of ethnic Nepalese Tamang people. The trek takes you through the rural and rugged mountains and the high passes scattered with shortens, stupas and prayer flags waving in the wind make every trekker enthralled. The Langtang valley referred as “the valley of glaciers”, lies north to the Kathmandu. Langtang is also the region of pre historic Tibetan monasteries, rhododendron and bamboo forests, majestic waterfalls, snow-capped Himalayas, and many holy lakes, or what the devout practitioners call the Kunda.

Their children are now Buddhists and existing on agriculture and trade. They prefer multicoloured outfit and their houses are adorned with striking woodcarvings.
