Tamang Heritage Trail Trek is a wonderful trek situated in Langtang Region which offers beautiful scenery of highest peaks of Nepal and a tamang village enriched with tamang culture, religion and tradition. Tamang Hritage Trail Trekking was invented by the Tourism for Rural Alleviation Program on the off beaten trail which features the ancient lifestyle of Tamang people, beautiful monasties and hot springs of Langtang Region.
People residing in this region are mostly Tibetans who came from Tibet and settled in Nepal so the cultural and traditions of these people are similar to that of Tibetan.
