Details of Tamang Heritage Trekking Trail

The Tamang Heritage Trekking Trail is a special offer to see the border of Tibet, the Tamang people’s lifestyle, and their traditional cultures, customs, languages, and religion. It is not far from Kathmandu, just situated in the northern part of Tibet. The trek is easily accessible, natural, culturally unique, and very beautiful—just a week-perfect itinerary. They are Tamang, but Tibetan inhabitants. There is one highway called the Kerong Short Highway, and some goods are imported from Tibet. There are some beautiful snow peaks, but the main things are exploring the Tamang lifestyle, their typical cultures, and cultivating. Most of the rivers have lots of possibilities for producing hydropower. There is a big hydropower company called Chilime Company where you will see the big dam side in Chilime village. We called it a short and sweet trek with much to explore. It is situated between two big mountains, Ganesh Himal and Langtang, and many more white snow peaks. The trekking route is in the Langtang Region. The yellow, colorful natural hot spring is best to drop, cool, and relax your muscles. Natural hot springs and a typical lifestyle culture make trekking extremely delightful.

The Tamang Heritage Trail explores the lifestyle and typical culture of Tamang people. It is near the Tibet border and influences Tibetans. The people are farmers; they grow lots of crops and vegetables, and they provide hygienic meals with warm hospitality. There are lots of hydropower plants, such as Trishuli and Chilime, and a massive dam on the side. There is a natural hot spring. You will see some white, snow-capped magical mountains.

Every village is a very good community village with warm hospitality. They are very religious, and mainly they respect Buddhism, and every village has a small or big monastery. There are many mani walls, chortens, prayer flags, and prayer wheels related to Buddhism. Especially since they do farming on their own farm, most of the crops they grow are potatoes, barley, wheat, buckwheat, corn, millet, beans, and many more vegetables.
