Tamang Heritage Trail: An Ecofriendly Trek

The Tamang Heritage Trail is the perfect metaphor of ecofriendly trek into the midst of green and unspoiled nature preserved from the ravages of modern civilizational progress and devastation.

The trail along with spreading the aroma of intact nature offers the magnificent views of Himalayan life style and culture. While offering the beauty of the mountain region and the culture of the people who live there, the trail traverses through traditional Tamang villages where life, culture, and crafts have remained unaffected for centuries.

The trail being rich in architecture of ethnic mountain houses, the ancient monasteries and places of prayer traverses through beautiful landscapes of alpine terrain, flat meadows and rhododendron forests. The ecofriendly trek can be undertaken either from Dhunche or Syabrubesi and at the end, pass through  Goljung, Gatlang, Thuman, Timure, Briddim, Lama Hotel, Langtang valley and Kyangjin Gompa. Goljung, Gatlang and Langtang, the traditional Tamang villages comprise the cultural features of the trek. Further, the beautiful local Tamang monastery and the holy Parvatikunda Lake at Gatlang excite the lovely pleasure of the trek.
