The starting point of the eight-day trek is Syaphrubesi, which is a 132km ride from Kathmandu to the north. From Syaphrubesi, the route passes through Gollijung, Gatlang, Chilime, Tatopani, Rasuwagadhi and Briddim.

The trail passes through traditional Tamang villages where life, culture, and crafts have remained unchanged since the beginning of the settlement. Warm traditional welcome hoste by the locals their elaborate costumes, the rich architecture of their mountain houses, and the ancient monasteries and places of pray add color to the experience of this trail. In addition to the cultural experience, the trek also offers wilderness experience through beautiful landscapes of alpine terrain, flat meadows and rhododendron forests.

The Tamang people originally came from Tibet as horse traders and settled in hilly parts of Nepal (usually within close proximity of the Kathmandu Valley) several hundred years ago. They have retained a distinct identity with Tibetan roots, as well as their own language. They have historically been one of the most marginalized ethnic groups in Nepal. Sadly, they were among the worst-affected groups during the 2015 earthquake, as their homes tended to be in vulnerable areas cut off from help. Trekking the Tamang Heritage Trail helps bring a source of income to the Tamang people in this area.

Tamang Heritage Trek Itinerary

Day 1Day of Arrivalin Kathmandu.

Today is a day of arrival in Kathmandu. We will be there at the airport to greet and pick you up. One of the staff from Trailblazer Trekking and Tours will transfer you to your respective hotel. Today you can enjoy around the streets of Kathmandu and explore around Thamel area. In the evening there will be a welcome dinner within authentic Nepalese Restaurant with Nepalese cuisine with beautiful cultural programs.

Day 2Drive Kathmandu to Syabrubesi

Leave Kathmandu early for the seven-hour drive to the entrance of the Langtang Valley. While the Tamang Heritage Trail is not so far from Kathmandu, the road is hilly and winding (though spectacular), climbing high and providing us with superb panoramic views of the Annapurnas, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and the peaks of the Langtang region. The road then plunges down to the Trisuli River valley, which it follows for most of the day’s drive.

Day 3Syabrubesi trek to Gatlang (approx. 5.5 hours)

Syabrubesi is the common starting point for the Langtang Valley trek as well as the Gosainkund trek, but instead of heading in these directions, ascend a view point for an hour and a half for a fantastic view of Ganesh Himal, the Gosainkund range, and the Goljang Valley. Head down to the Goljang Valley (about an hour’s walk) and stop there for lunch. In the afternoon, trek for about three hours to reach Gatlang, a beautiful Tamang village.

Day 4Gatlang to Tatopani (approx. 7 hours)

Today’s walk begins by descending to Thangbuchet, by a lovely river. After lunch, the trail heads up again, across a hanging bridge and climbing to Tatopani, your stop for the night. The town’s name literally means ‘hot water’ in Nepali, and there are towns of this name all over Nepal. Unsurprisingly, here you can enjoy the natural hot springs, with water that comes straight out of the ground. Locals believe that the waters have a healing quality, and it will certainly ease away any aches and pains from the trek.

Day 5Tatopani to Thuman (approx. 4 hours)

Today, the trail ascends to Nagthali Danda (3,300 m./ 10,826 ft.), a high, open grassland with amazing views of the Himalayas. Stop at the delightful Brimdang village for lunch en route, then continue up to Nagthali Danda. On arrival, stop for a masala chiya (tea), prepared by the gompa’s caretaker. Then, continue down to Thuman, a Tamang village with friendly people who love to sing and dance. You might even be invited to join in!

Day 06Thuman to Briddim (approx. 5 hours)

Today’s walk begins along a flatter section of trail, then descends to Timure. It follows part of the old trade route to Tibet, and in fact, Tibet is not far away—just three hours’ walk. However, it’s not possible to walk across the border these days, and there’s a heavy police presence along the roads in this area. After lunch, the trail continues to Briddim, another Tamang village, where you’ll stay in a local home for a truly unique experience. All accommodation, lodgings, and food are offered at local houses on a rotational basis, so you can be sure that your stay is benefitting the whole community and not just one or two enterprising families (as is sometimes the case with hotels and lodges).

Day 07Briddim trek to Syabrubesi (approx. 3 hours) & drive back to Kathmadnu

Today is an easy three-hour walk back down to Syabrubesi. Have lunch there, and then spend the afternoon relaxing or exploring. Syabrubesi is a small town, and there are some shops selling local handicrafts made by women, such as colorful aprons and shawls in the local style. Drive back to Kathmandu while enjoying the mountain scenery en route.

Day 08Leisure day in Kathmandu

You have leisure day today so you have option to have short visit near Kathmandu, or can accomplish your personal activities and shopping is always there for memento back to home. In the evening we will have farewell dinner to celebrate our adventurous journey and beautiful moments together along the journey. Night stay in Kathmandu
