Duration : 11  Days

Overview

Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is one of the short, and best trekking in the Langtang region located at the north of Kathmandu valley, exploring the unique Tamang culture while trekking amid green valleys and stunning mountains. The Tamang heritage trail offers sustainable economic welfare to the local community.
The Tamang Heritage Trail is situated in the north of the Kathmandu valley, perhaps the nearest trekking route from the city. In between trekking, you will be rewarded by the stunning vistas of the district: lush forest, terraced farm, stunning Langtang peaks and near to the border of Tibet. Alongside you will get the chance to explore the unique culture and tradition of the Tamang community.
The interesting facts are, the Tamang people are a native of Tibet and came as horse traders and reside in hilly parts of Nepal centuries ago. And it is said that they are the most marginalized ethnic community in Nepal.

This short trek is the best alternative for families, friends, and all aged groups to explore the stunning natural beauty and Tamang culture of central-northern Nepal with easy and mild walks.
The 11 days trek begins after arrival in Kathmandu and drives to the gateway to Langtang Valley “Syabrubesi” the next day. In between treks, you will explore Buddhist life, unique architecture, Chortens, Gompas, Mani walls, beautiful landscapes of the subalpine and stunning Himalayan range of Langtang valley.

The difficulty of Tamang Heritage Trail Trek

Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is considered as the moderate trek in Nepal which means neither easy nor difficult which means not difficult as Everest base Camp and Annapurna Circuit Trek, and novice trekkers can easily do this trek without any effort and difficulty. The entire trek is spread out into 8 days of trekking, a distance of 55 km long from Syabru Besi via Nagathali-Briddim to Syabru Besi. Per day the average walk will be 5-7hours.
The route to Ghatang village is a little difficult due to the cliff and stones stairs, and the trail towards Nagathali is moderate as you will walk through the slope to the cliff.

The trail is well managed and it doesn’t require any technical mountaineering skills. But it demands the inner Patience and well setup mind to complete it successfully.
The elevation is the next factor to consider as this route will probably lead you up to 3165m which is less than Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp. Though it is an easy and low altitude trek so you will not get too much physical stress after the trek and while trek. The Difficulty of the trek depends upon the season so, wisely choose the best season (Autumn - Spring) to avoid the difficulty: Landslide, Slippery trail, Leeches, and frequent downpours. Last year the 7-year-old kid made the world Guinness record by being the youngest trekker to the Everest Base Camp, however, this is one of the easiest and shortest than that.

Best season to do Tamang Heritage Trail Trek

Nepal has 4 different seasons in a Year: Summer/Monsoon, Winter, Autumn, and Spring. The best time to do the Tamang Heritage Trail trek or any trekking routes in Nepal like Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Circuit, Annapurna Base Camp, Manaslu, is March to May the pre-monsoon season and late September to November the post-monsoon season. There is less chance of rainfalls and the colorful nature in this season is in full swing at this time.
The day temperature during the autumn season ranges from 10-15 degrees celsius.
The day temperature during the spring season ranges from 10-20 degrees celsius.
 
This short adventurous trek is doable throughout the year because it is one of the low altitude treks to the Langtang region, neither you have to Cross the high pass nor you will ascend to the altitude above 3200m.
The month of late November to February is the winter season in Nepal, this time the temperature will drop to freezing which means extreme cold during the night and morning at the high altitude but this is low altitude trek is doable in winter the temperature will drop to -2 degrees during night and morning during the day the temperature will range from 10-13 degrees.
The views will be stunning, you will enjoy the thick fat views of the majestic mountain range, Perhaps the trail will be a little challenging due to the snow-line on the trail.

The month of late June to early September is Summer and Monsoon season in Nepal, this time the frequent rainfall makes the trail wet and slippery. Trekking along the high humid, wet and leachy trail is not a good idea for those who wish to explore the swinging nature of Tamang Heritage Trail.
If you really wish to venture along with the daring high humid and frequent downpours of monsoon and cold of winter wisely prepare yourself with an extra layer of rain covers and anti-leech layer in Monsoon and for winter uplift some extra pairs of warm clothes.
The best of the best time to explore the glimpse of the Langtang Valley Trek is Spring and Autumn season.

Accommodation and Meal during trekking

accommodation during trek will be in a local teahouse and homestay, which offers basic facilities of Beds, Blankets, Pillow and healthy food. While staying in Briddim, you will experience the local life of local people overnight in the homestay, however, the locals will offer you the best and comfortable service.
