"Tamang Heritage"

Cultural Heritage - 12 days

A journey of peace and appreciation of life in the mountains.

For people interested in culture, tradition and ancient villages.

From Syabrubesi we will go on a circular route through an area that is little influenced by tourism and therefore keeps its Buddhist traditions and its rural way of life.
We are very close to the border with Tibet and we are touching the Langtang area, so we will be able to see great snowy mountains: Ganesh Himal 7,422m, Langtang Lirung 7,227m, Sishapangma 8,012m and more …

It is a perfect route for those who love to walk calmly and stop to enjoy the details ...

The highest point we will ascend during this route is the Nagthali Danda hill 3,165m, where there is a meditation center for devotees and Buddhist priests.

In general we will always be at an altitude of about 2,200m during this entire circular route, and there will be no high altitude passes or ascents to the Base Camp of any great mountain. We will not walk more than 5 hours a day and the path will not be very physically demanding.

A perfect complement to combine with the Langtang trek.

Of course, we will visit Kathmandu and its monuments declared as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

There is no risk of suffering from altitude sickness, as the ascent will be very progressive and with enough time to acclimatise.
The trekking days are usually about 6 hours and you walk 10 to 15 Km/day, although there are harder days than others.

This trek is specially designed for those people who are more interested in culture and ancient villages, than in the mountains themselves. Although from the peak Nagthali (with 3,100m is the highest point of this circular route) it is impossible not to enjoy the wonderful views of the Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal and the proximity of Tibet.

The trek begins in SyapruBesi, just like when you go to Langtang, but for much of the route we will be on the opposite side of the valley, crossing beautiful rhododendron and bamboo forests.
All along the way you will be able to feel the hospitality of the people who are not so used to tourism, who continue to live from agriculture and their animals as they have always done. You can also appreciate the beauty of ancient monasteries and houses adorned with wood carvings following the impressive Tamang heritage of Tibetan / Buddhist tradition.
Actually the border with Tibet is very close and the ancestors of these people were merchants who finally decided to settle in this area. But Tibetans could not have citizenship in Nepal, so they changed their ethnicity to Tamang, which is what they still write on their nationality documents. This is why the culture and traditions of these people are so similar to those of the Tibetans across the border.

In all the towns you will see many children running around happily. They usually have their little schools in surrounding villages and they come and go every day. In other more touristic places you don’t find as many children, since when the parents have money they usually send them to study in bigger towns like Dunche, or directly to Kathmandu, which means they only return to town on vacation. But this is not the case and normally children do not receive higher education unless they get a foreign sponsor. It’s easy to see 10-year-olds working in the fields, herding goats or carrying firewood. Most will marry and have children, but they continue living in their town, working the land and taking care of their animals as they have always done. You can also see women working the land with a child perched on their back holding a shawl. Children are fully integrated into everyday life.

If you are lucky enough to coincide with a festival, you can see how they adorn themselves with their colorful and elegant typical costumes and dance all together in circles, while the musicians play their traditional songs with traditional handcrafted instruments.

If you have more days you can add the route with the Langtang trek.

It is a route to do with an open heart to what is emerging and in no rush to reach the end.

A charming route, recommended for anyone who enjoys nature and knows how to appreciate the beauty of ancient cultures.
