I will like to give you some small introduction to trekking in Nepal in the middle of some of the most beautiful landscape in the whole country, with riches tamang village of cultural Heritage in Langtang Nepal. Thamangs Heritage village is located north from capital of Kathmandu close to the Tibetan border. Is a narrow valley to be found 75 kms north of Kathmandu?
Nepal, fought with Tibet Many years before for salt and some of the biggest areas where this war took place is in the Langtang Region of Nepal, where lies the third for the most part popular trekking trail in Nepal. This area is joined to Tibet and the trails in this region were used by traders from Tibet bartering in Salt and mountain goats for meat (chyangra) with food stuffs from the south.
Thamang heritage area is developed by the Tourism for Rural Poverty improvement Program; the “Tamang Heritage Trail” is the newly developed tourism result, off the beaten trail, which highlights an ancient lifestyle combining it with charming scenery and medicinal baths in natural hot springs.
The people of this region are mostly Tibetans who came from Kerung in Tibet across the border and settled in Nepal. In earlier days, the citizenship of Nepal would not be offered to real Tibetans, so they changed their civilization to Tamang, which is what they still write till date. The cultural and traditions of these people are similar to the Tibetan across the border.
This journey is takes just one day bus drive from Kathmandu. The trekking tour provides varieties of experience. Tamang rituals, Tibetan culture, festivals, traditional architecture, costumes, local Syabru dances make the exposure to this culture very unique. There is a view point at Goljung Pass, from where views of Langtang and Kerung (Tibet) can be wonder exciting. Visitors will get an opportunity to observe Syabru, Mane and other local dances at Goljung and Gatlang VDCs. The villages also sell exclusive handicraft items like traditional caps, mufflers and other items.
Every people can enjoy with hot bath in the healing hot-water spring at Tatopani before reaching Nagthali, where the stay is a unique experience. The ancient monasteries and houses decorated with rich wood engravings at Thuman is an unforgettable experience.
In Briddim village people can gets to knowledge about the famous Tamang hospitality, where there is home stay facility in 24 houses. After the Tamang heritage trail we will head towards the Langtang. The Tamang heritage trails with the Langtang would be one of the best trails in Nepal, but not the least combining like the Annapurna circuit or the Everest Base Camp.
