Tamang Heritage Trail Trek – Cultural Trek in Nepal

Tamang heritage trail trek in Langtang region is a special design off the beaten trail that highlights an ancient rich cultural heritage. The trek combines this with picturesque scenery of secret Langtang valley and healing baths in natural hot springs. Previously a restricted region near the Tibetan border and the unexplored northern Langtang valley has recently developed into this trek. The people in this area are mostly Tamang and of Tibetan origin. Also, their culture and crafts have remained unchanged since the beginning of settlements. All these craftsmanship, dress, traditionally built stone households and the beautifully carved wooden porches reflect the solitude and the serenity of the Himalayan lifestyle.

 

What’s so special about this trek?

We pass many traditional settlements and monasteries that have remained unchanged on this trek. Panoramic view of Mt. Langtang, Kerung and Ganesh Himal are stunning. A fort at Rasuwagadi is a historical reminder of the Nepal-Tibet relation that has existed for many centuries. The special arrangement of the homestay program at some places enhances the cultural experiences allowing you to have close interaction with the local people, which is rare in traditional trekking route.

 

Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is inside the Langtang National Park which is why the possibilities to postpone this trek is higher for Langtang Valley trek. Furthermore, you can enjoy the view of the holy lake Gosaikunda and Helambu valley as well.

We advise travel insurance to all travelers who are interested in trekking in Nepal. Trekking in Nepal is walking on the trail (path) of mountains. In mountain areas, health treatment facilities are not standard. There is less availability of good hospitals and doctors. So if in case the trekker suffers from severe sickness, he should be brought to Kathmandu by helicopter for better treatment. And the helicopter charter fare is expensive in Nepal. If you have already travel insurance, your money will be saved.

When selecting a travel insurance policy we require that at a minimum you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. We, JRN Treks, shall have no liability for loss, theft of or damage to baggage or personal effects.

We also let you know that Nepalese Insurance Company does not have a travel insurance policy for foreign nationals. They have this policy only for Nepalese citizens. So we advise you to select your travel insurance with Insurance Company in your own place.
