From the top of wide open grass land of Nagthali pass; the stunning view of Mt. Ganesh, Mt. Langtang and the surrounding hills is mesmerizing. Apart from that, the villages seen in distance and Kerung boarder of Nepal China are interesting to watch during Tamang Heritage trekking in Langtang. We pass through the pine forest today.

Day 8
From Briddim to Lama hotel(2470m). 6-7 hrs

Starting of today’s trekking is gradual uphill. We will walk all around a big hill until we trek downhill to our final destination Lama Hotel. View of Thuman village, ridge of Tatopani village, mountains and the entire landscape looks nicer today. We will be facing exactly towards the trail we walked so far. With a nice feeling of how far we trekked and how many ups and downhill we have been through, makes heart filled with joy and happiness.
Trekking through the pine jungle and watching the view of the village and mountains through the Rhododendron flower windows will make Tamang heritage trekking as a natural trekking trail (off beaten trekking path). From today’s trekking you will feel a difference in the Tamang heritage trekking vibe. Before; the trek was more about culture, tradition and people but less about nature.
But right after Birdim homestay we will get soaked into the nature part of Tamang heritage trekking. Before getting to Sherpa Gaun we need to ascend a little bit. Right after we get to the peaceful Sherpa gaun; Tamang heritage trail trek starts descending gradually all the way to down to Lama Hotel. Lama hotel is on the side of Langtang River.

Natural part of Tamang Heritage trekking fill your joy with greenery. We will walk along the side of the river inside the forest. Forest of pine, Rhododendron and Bamboo are hub for herbs and wildlife. When we start our trekking from Lama Hotel it is inside the jungle. But, once we get nearer to the Langtang village no tree line begins already from Thangshyap village.
Langtang village is completely rebuilt after 2015 earthquake. Accommodation and bakery are back in the service of trekkers. But the loss this village had is unidentifiable. If it is your second visit to Langtang village after earthquake, you cannot imagine the picture you have taken on your last Nepal Visit. Scene of the village is completely changed (destroyed).

Day 10
Langtang to Kyanjin Gompa(3870m). 4 hrs

Walking on almost the flat terrain, Langtang to Kyanjing gompa is approximate 8 kilometers of walk. We will trek above 4000 meters today, so feeling of high altitude, a thin air and chilly wind is normal in today’s hike (trekking). We will pass by herds of Yak grazing in the meadow. Farmers working in their farm look nicer where stunning view of the mountains keeps on changing its face, closer and closer.
At this point of Tamang heritage trekking, one can feel the presence of White Mountains in Nepal trek. We will pass by long manni walls along the side of the Langtang River. Prayer flags, water driven prayer wheels in the middle of the trekking trail made Tamang heritage trail trek a best trekking in Nepal. Once we get to Kyanjing Gompa; view of all the mountains we have been chasing comes really closer. Mt Langtang lirung 7205 meters will change its face at Kyanjing Gompa Village. We will see 100s of mountains from this village of Langtang.

Day 11
Kyanjin Gompa to Lama hotel(2470m). 5-7 hrs

Trekking down to Lama Hotel is comparatively easy. We will start trekking back to lama hotel by same trekking trail. After passing through the Kyanjing village, we pass by the local Monastery of Kyanjing village. This monastery is called Kyanjing Gompa in Nepali. This is how the name of the village became Kyanjing village.
Lama hotel is around 7 hour’s downhill trek from this last village of Langtang valley. Lama hotel has a story behind its name. This place used to have only one hotel. And that hotel was owned by Lama Cast of the Nepali society. Although you can see more than 7 lodges in present, real lama hotel is one of the smallest in the middle of the village. As Tamang heritage trail trek is named so, during the trekking we will pass by many Tamang villages.

Day 12
Lama hotel to Syabrubesi(1550m). 5 hrs (Tamang Heritage Trek Ends)

After breakfast at the river side village of Lama Hotel, we will start our jungle trekking to Syaprubensi. We will pass by number of villages on the way down to our final stop of Tamang heritage trekking. Most of the today’s walk is through the jungle. We pass through scenic sights of Himalayan honey hive and interesting tree structures. Possibility of sighting monkey, lots of birds and insects is so common. It is researched that, this section of Tamang heritage trekking is famous for barking deer, Red panda, leopard, black beer and many other wild lives.
From Lama Hotel to Kyanjing Gompa village trekkers will see the nature along with different culture from Thuman, Birdim or Tatopani. Starting from Birdim village somehow the culture of Sherpa people in the Langtang region starts exposing to trekkers. We will stay at the local lodges owned by locals and these locals are Sherpa people of Nepal. Tibetan influence on these Sherpa is nice to witness in their tradition and culture.

Day 13
Drive from Syabrubesi to Kathmandu.

Present road condition of Langtang trek trail is much shorter than earlier. There are two different options for bus or jeep. We will take either of them, but will make sure you will get the serene view of the waterfall, deep river valley and the life on the road side Nepal.
