This is a spiritual journey into the heart of the Tibetan Buddhist region in the Langtang Valley on the Tibetan border. This maybe your journey of self-discovery while you watch and learn from the Tamang people. The physical beauty of this trek and a rare opportunity to discover more about these resilient and proud people make this a trek not to be missed.
Tamang are Tibetan Buddhists as are most of the inhabitants in the upper Himalayan region. Their religion is traditionally Bon Lamaism; a fusion of Shamanism and Buddhism. Tamang may be derived from the word Tamag, where Ta means "horse" and Mag means "soldier" in Tibetan.
The trek takes you to a once protected area of Nepal and deep into the Langtang Valley where villages clearly exhibit Tibetan lifestyle, architecture, and Buddhist culture. The trail exposes you to a diverse and rich landscape with its unique flora and fauna, lakes, deep lush valleys with forests and rugged alpine passes colorful costumes, rituals, carvings, architecture, monuments, and ancient monasteries.
The rhododendron forests, during spring, are ablaze with pink color. The trail passes through bamboo groves and alpine forests, and if luck has it you will also see the somewhat elusive red panda, or maybe the Himalayan black bear, Himalayan Tahr, and rhesus monkeys. The birdlife is also abundant in this region. A reasonable level of fitness is required on this trek due to climbing at higher altitudes.
The Tamang Heritage Trekking route is a traditional route taken by traders bringing their wares, such as salt and goats, from Tibet into Nepal. This trek is popular due to its proximity to Kathmandu which means less traveling time to reach the remote Langtang region.
Sherpa Expedition and Trekking is sure you will enjoy this less traveled trek that offers quiet and unspoiled scenery
The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find comfortable and better quality teahouses - having attached bathroom at lower levels- until you reach higher elevations, where the accommodation is more basic with bare necessities.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Langtang regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek.
This can be an easy trek where you often have to walk 5-6 hours a day. You don’t need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.

We had an amazingly positive encounter with Sherpa Expedition and Trekking. As two ladies in our 50s we needed a challenge in an curiously area where we blended with the nearby individuals and we got that with the Tamang Legacy Path. What a enchant it was trekking between towns within the Rasuwa locale remaining in visitor houses with scrumptious nourishment served up 3 times a day. The dhal Bhat, Tibetan bread, MoMos, fruit platters and bother soup (cooked up by our direct) tragically guaranteed we did not arrive domestic any lighter. The view was astounding and individuals with encounter in Nepal who saw my photographs commented it looked like trekking in Nepal 30 a long time back some time recently commercialization of the region. Our direct and doorman were exceptional youthful men who made our trip indeed more agreeable with their calm productivity and neighborly deportment and we never felt hurried up and down the mountainsides. After a feast at our guesthouses the neighborhood ladies on ask would bring out their home-made products. Parts of scarfs, caps, gloves, adornments and packs made for great gifts and presents. The as it were tip for booking this specific trip is to budget for a private 4-wheel drive with driver to urge in and out of the path head at Syabrubesi. I will be back to journey in Nepal and I won't delay to book with Sherpa Expedition and Trekking.
