The Langtang valley is located in a close proximity to Tibet in the north. A discreet region just 19 km north of Kathmandu offers one of the best trekking experiences in Nepal.

Tamang Heritage Trail is an extension of the greater Langtang trail. The trek leads you through the Tamang settlements of the central northern Nepal.

Tamang is one of the indigenous tribe of Nepal, based mostly in the upper hills. They are known to have migrated from Tibet and Burma in the early 7th century. Today, they comprise of a rich and unique historical and cultural group of people.

Langtang Lirung (7,227 m) and Yala Peak (5,520 m) dominates the scenery throughout the trek. The most part of the trail lies inside Langtang National Park. The region was heavily devastated during the major earthquake of 2015, however, the locals have rebuilt the region, and today it’s is fully operational. The trek begins from Syabrubesi. The trail ascends further to Lama Hotel, followed by Kyanjin Gompa. Kyanjin Gompa is a Buddhist religious site and a major stop during the trek. The trail extensively passes through the Tamang settlements.

Langtang Trek is suitable for all kinds of hikers. You must be accompanied by a guide to enter the region. Langtang National Park is the first Himalayan national park of Nepal. Established in 1976, it is home to Gosainkunda lake and many rare flora and faunas. Himalayan black bear, Himalayan tahr, Rhesus monkey and Red Panda are few of the exotic animals found inside the park.

Testimonials

Annapurna is the best place on Earth. The route and scenery are breath-taking. The way leading from Machhapuchhre to Annapurna base camp is the best.

I had fun with my friends. The guide is the best! He helped us throughout the trip. I’d suggest you to take Diamox to help prevent altitude sickness. It’s really hard to breath when you reach at the top. All in all a great experience. ~Jessica Mahut (Florida, USA)
