Tamang heritage is amazing trekking located at the Lang tang mountain range. This trek is a perfect combination of natural beauty and the unique culture of people. During this trek, we can enjoy the magnificent view of Ganesh Himal, Shishapangma, and Langtang mountain range and observe the culture of the inhabitant Tamang people, which is influenced by Tibetan culture. People here mostly migrated from Tibet long ago. Nepalese government didn’t recognize as citizens so they change as a Tamang which is a group of Nepal people but they still follow their own culture and tradition. Our journey begins with a 7-8 hour bus journey from Kathmandu. During our trip, we can stay in the community homestay of Tamang people and enjoy their warm hospitality.
Accommodation During Trekking
During the trek, we will be staying at local teahouses. These offer accommodation and food served in a dining room which also functions as a social meeting place with other trekkers. All accommodation is on a twin shared basis. A single room is usually available at a little extra cost. The tour guide will arrange the best available accommodation in each village. As we advance to higher and more remote villages it may occasionally be necessary to share a room with more than 2 people. During the treks, most of the bathroom and toilet facilities are shared and the toilet can be either a squat or a western toilet.
Meals During Trekking
In Kathmandu, we can enjoy authentic Nepalese food such as Thali and Momo at a traditional Nepalese restaurant. For instance, a Newari restaurant is a special place serving Newari food (the Newari are the indigenous people of the Kathmandu valley). Newari food is famous and unique. During the trek, we will eat traditional Nepalese food as well as more international cuisine (Tibetan, Indian, Italian, and continental).
