Tamang Heritage Trail (10) Days

Trip Introduction

The people of this region are mostly Tibetans who came from Kerung in Tibet across the border and settled in Nepal. In earlier days, the Nepali citizenship would not be offered to real Tibetans, so they changed their ethnicity to Tamang, which is what they still write to date. The cultural and traditions of these people are similar to the Tibetans across the border.

 

This trekking destination is just a day long bus journey from the capital, Kathmandu. The 7-day trekking tour provides a variety of experience. Tamang rituals, Tibetan culture, festivals, traditional architecture, costumes, local Syabru dances make the exposure to this culture very unique. There is a view point at Goljung Pass, from where views of Langtang and Kerung (Tibet) can be awe inspiring. Visitors will get an opportunity to observe Syabru, Mane and other local dances at Goljung and Gatlang VDCs. The villages also sell exclusive handicraft items like traditional caps, mufflers and other items. Tourists can enjoy hot baths in the healing hot-water spring at Tatopani before reaching Nagthali, where the stay is a unique experience. The ancient monasteries and houses adorned with rich wood engravings at Thuman is an unforgettable experience. At Briddim one gets to experience the famous Tamang hospitality, where there is home stay facility in 24 houses.
