The Tamang heritage trek is a newly discovered trail in Nepal. It is a cultural trek through vibrant Tamang villages in Langtang with beautiful panoramic views of Ganesh Himal and Langtang range which lies in the northern part of Kathmandu near Langtang National Park. In Nepal, this trekking is the perfect way of enjoying your life with awesome memories.
Tamang heritage trek is an expedition that takes you to some of the most culturally rich areas of northern Nepal. Most importantly, it offers you a peek into the lifestyle and traditions of the Tamang community living in the Langtang region. Moreover, you’ll witness some breath-taking scenery of terraced farmlands, verdant forests and snow-capped mountains of Langtang Himalayas.
Exploring an Indigenous Civilization
Originally from Tibet, the Tamang people came to Nepal as traders of horses and started living near the northern border. They are also known to be one of the indigenous people of Nepal and India. Constituting 5.6% population of Nepal, they mostly follow Buddhism as their dominant religion. They mostly live at higher altitudes while engaging in agriculture as a means of livelihood.
Tamang heritage trek offers you some extraordinary glimpses into their culture. Moreover, lack of modernization has helped to preserve their customs and traditions. They have a large number of festivals and rituals that manifest their Tibetan roots and ethnic identity. While severely affected by the earthquake of 2015, they still have their traditions and legacy intact.
