    All about the Tamang Heritage Trek – Mustang.

    The Tamang Heritage Trek is a perfect 10-day long trek in the shadows of the Langtang and Ganesh ranges. The trek goes along the trail between Ganesh Himal and the Langtang range.

    It is magnificent in the sense that it includes all elements of the Tamang community. Their distinct language, dress, food, and traditional values are some of the major highlights on the trek. Don’t miss on a lifetime experience of Nepal’s ethnic beauty!

    The Tamang Heritage Trek is one of the easier treks in Nepal. This short trek can be done by trekkers with an average physical condition. The trek can also be done all around the year; however, monsoon season should be avoided to get the best out of the trek.

    Eternal Himalaya has been one of the biggest names in the Nepalese tourism industry. As such, we have a skilled team of friendly members to help travelers. We also have many trip packages in Nepal.
