Trip Introduction

Tamang heritage trail offers a real Tibetan culture in Nepal. The ethnic inhabitants of Tamang people live in Tamang Heritage. Most of the people who live in Tamang Heritage is of Tibet origin. So, the traditions and cultures of them are same as of Tibetan people. As they crossed the border and settled in Nepal in earlier days, they changed their ethnicity into Tamang because Nepal Government would not have given citizenship to the real Tibetan. Tamang heritage trail is a newly opened trekking route.

During the whole trip, we will be rewarded marvelous snow-capped mountain views, daily lifestyle of Tamang – Ethnic Himalayan Inhabitants as well as colorful and painted Buddhist monasteries.
