Tamang Heritage Homestay Trek

12 Days


A short drive from Kathmandu marks the beginning of the amazing Tamang Heritage trek, venturing into the lower foothills of the Langtang region, located between the Langtang and Ganesh Himal mountain ranges.

The local Tamang communities are a small cultural group of Tibetan descent living a traditional lifestyle raising livestock, farming, making baskets and mats from mountain bamboo and trading with Kerung in Tibet. They offer a friendly welcome to passing travelers and are happy to share their rich culture.

As the trek meanders through this Tamang populated land, breathtaking mountain scenery will prevail, encapsulating pretty villages, terraced hillside fields, lush valleys and thick, colorful jungles. As we trek into traditional mountain territory, we can bathe in natural hot springs, witness the sun rise and set over some of the most beautiful natural scenery in the world and stay in traditional local homes. A trip not to be missed for those who enjoy immersing themselves in local culture, ancient customs and traditions.

  1. Fantastic trek
    By Brenda Stockwell November 11, 2014
    First discovered Mosaic Adventure at the Adventure Travel show and had good vibes about the company -- with total justification -- so if you're thinking of a trek/trip to Nepal then go with the people who know -- go with Mosaic Adventure and you can be assured you are in safe hands. We did the Tamang Heritage Trail -- extremely well organised and at a very reasonable price. Madhav - in the office -- answered all emails - however insignificant -promptly and helpfully and when we met up in the office all the staff made us - 2 ladies of a certain age - feel very welcome. Our guide - Pralhad -- was terrific -- very helpful, very thoughtful, nothing was too much trouble - and most important totally professional and someone in whom we had the utmost trust. Thank you Pralhad -- you were brilliant. I know it's a hackneyed phrase but everyone made us feel not just like clients -- but friends. Sincere thanks to all of you for making it such a fantastic trek -- here's to the next time.
