Tamang Heritage Trail

Developed by the Tourism for Rural Poverty Alleviation Program, the "Tamang Heritage Trail" is the newly developed tourism product, off the beaten track, which highlights an ancient lifestyle combining it with picturesque scenery and healing baths in natural hot springs.

This is a unique trek offering the opportunity to lodge with locals in a family home stay. This allows a superb opportunity to really experience the way of life in these remote villages. We trek to Gatlang where we can relax by Parvati Kund, the first of the sacred lakes we will visit.

We then climb to Tatopani where we can bathe in the hot spring waters. The trail then heads east towards the Bhote Koshi valley across a very picturesque trail with great viewing points to see the mountains. Once we meet the Bhote Kosi we then descend to the river and cross over to Briddim. Here we lodge at an award winning family home stay. We then climb to visit Gosainkund Lakes, revered sacred by Hindu’s. An ancient tale tells how the lakes were believed to be formed by Shiva and his consort Parvati.

A descent to the trail end allows us to meet our transport and return to Kathmandu. This is the only trek that provides family home stay accommodation and allows you to explore the remote people and culture of the Tamang and Tibetan borderland area.
