Similar to the fact that Hospitality knows no barriers, the high valley of Langtang is arguably one of the most welcoming regions in the Nepalese trekking landscapes. Home to the ethnic Tamang clan, this region finds its cultural roots deep-seated within religion similar to their norms and values. A source of inspiration for all the region, Langtang has stood tall in the face of perilous calamities and has always found the strength to rebuild while making sure they don’t stray away from who they are. The Langtang Tamang Heritage trek takes us to the homes of such Langtang people and offers a chance to closely observe their ancient way of life. Neighboring Tibet to the far north, the valley even though finds similarities with the Tibetan culture does manage to retain its identity as an ethnic tribe. The valley so beloved it is often referred to as darling of trekkers amongst other names. On the foothills of the majestic Langtang Range, the mesmerizing Himalayan views combined with the lush green valleys to create an amazing experience through the pristine Himalayan ecosystem. 

 

Beginning our adventure with a scenic drive through the banks of Trishuli Highway, we make our way over to the picturesque town called Sybrubensi. Just above the confluence of Langtang and Trishuli Rivers, the town serves as a trailhead for this trip. Entering the lush green forests, we head over to Gatlang before taking a dip at the lovely hot water springs at Tatopani. Past Tatopani, the trail ascends through the traditional hamlets at Thuman and Briddim to reach the Lama Hotel which provides us our first real look at the Himalayas. Ascending the Langtang village, the trail heads over to Kyangin Gompa which in addition to being the oldest monastery in the region is also one of the most visited spots on the trail. Taking in the stunning Himalayan views along with the pleasant cultural landscape, we begin our descending journey by heading back to Lama Hotel before descending to Sybrubensi ending our Himalayan adventure.
