Tamang Heritage Trail was once an unexplored part of the Langtang National Park. It allows you to venture deep into the Tamang hinterland. Tamang Heritage Trail and Langtang Valley Trek take you through the verdant midlands and into Tamang villages including Briddim and Gatlang; where you will have a chance to immerse yourself in the local culture. Originally, the Tamang people were Tibetan horse traders who migrate back and forth between Tibet and the lowlands of Nepal. They are also one of the oldest ethnic group of Nepal; with roots tracing back to the ancient people of Mongolia. This trek also takes you through alpine terrain, meadows and rhododendron forests, taking in soaring views of Manaslu Massif, Ganesh, Langtang and Jugal Himal.
