Tamang Heritage and Langtang trek is a fantastic trip to freshly discovered off the beaten trekking Trail to Tamang Heritage and to legendary Langtang valley which has long been famous as third popular trek in Nepal after Everest and Annapurna region. The Langtang region is as wild as any Tibetan highlands with heavenly delightful countryside landscape and the rich in cultural heritage of ethnic Tamang people. Despite being just a few hours drive from Kathmandu, the trek along off the beaten track of the remote and rugged mountains and the high passes dotted with some of the oldest religious monuments such as Buddhist stupas, chortens, prayers wall and ancient Tamang monasteries and prayer flags flapping in the wind make every trekker marvel why the country is called a "trekker's paradise" a land of magic, meditation, and shamanism.
Langtang is also the region of lush green bamboo and rhododendron forests, splendid waterfalls, towering high peaks, and many sacred lakes, or what the devout practitioners call the "Kunda". Our 13 Days Tamang Heritage with Langtang Valley Trek Itinerary starts with a 5-6 hours jeep ride from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. The journey begins from Syabrubesi and passes through Gatlang, Tatopani, Thuman and Briddim. We follow the classic Langtang Valley Trek from Briddim village via Kyanjin Gompa. Gatlang set on high on a hillside among terraced fields is a Tamang settlement. One can visit Tamang Buddhist monasteries and the beauty of the Parvatikunda Lake at Gatlang. Healing bath and spa in the water of the natural hot spring at Tatopani en-route from Gatlang to Thuman is an exhilarating experience.
Thuman is famous for its Shamanic performances and beautiful view of Langtang from every house in Thuman. Briddim allows firsthand experience of home stay, interact with local families. In addition, Trekkers can also visit local monasteries of Dukchu Gomba chosen as sacred site by the great Tibetan Lama - Guru Rinpoche and Chukla Khnaga Gomba. In Kyanjin Gompa, you will visit ancient Buddhist monastery and glaciers. Early in the morning you will ascend Tserko Ri for breath stopping view of the Langtang Himalayan range. There will also be the opportunity of visiting a traditional cheese factory, where the product is manufactured by hand. From Kyanjin Gompa, you retrace your route back down the valley to Dhunche and then drive back to Kathmandu.
I and my husband chose Pradip to be our guide in Nepal. We wanted to do Langtang Valley and he suggested a very nice itinerary of 17 days including the Tamang Heritage Trek and the wonderful Gosaikunda with its famous lake. The communication via email before the trek was flawless, he quickly replied all our emails and answered all our questions in a very kind and professional manner. Pradip is an exceptional guide, he took really good care of us and his English is extremely good. We loved to stay with him at a cup of tea and enjoy his stories about Nepal. He is from Tamang and he will give you a very good insight on the culture, traditions and religion in Nepal. We met him as our guide but left as friends. We definitely recommend Pradip and his services as top! We are grateful for the time spent with him and the amazing trek he helped us organise.
We hired a guide for the Tamang Heritage Trail in August 2016. Pradip came to our hotel to introduce our female guide. Because she was not so familiar with this trek, he also arranged a guide/porter for us. The guides were very helpful and always went for safety. Because we were trekking in monsoon, it was necessary to change the route which was no problem. We've had a wonderful time with two reliable, friendly and well organized guides. I would recommend wilderness excursions / hire a guide to others with no doubt.
