Located in the most accessible trekking region of Nepal, the Tamang Heritage trail awaits you! This amazing 15 days trekking package with Royal Himalayan Holidays takes you deep into the Langtang region just north-east of Kathmandu. Being close to the Tibetan border you’ll be able to experience amazing trekking trails through green forests, and terraced farmlands, as well as see some breathtaking Himalayan views! 

The Tamang Heritage trail is not only a trek through the Langtang region, but is also considered one of the best sustainable treks. As it provides much-needed income to the local Tamang communities that receive trekkers during the trail! We start on the Tamang Heritage trail with a drive to Syabrubesi. It’s a 9 days trek to the Kyanjin Gumba and back. The trails are filled with greenery and valley views. We’ll spend our time at local Tamang villages, interacting with the locals and observing their unique culture and traditions. The Tamang people originate from Tibet and descended down to Kathmandu as horse traders, settling near the Kathmandu Valley a century ago. Having their own language and still holding on to their Tibetan roots, they build countless stupas and gumbas across the Langtang Valley with the largest being the Kyanjin Gumba at a height of 3,800m/12,467ft. We’ll be trekking for 7 days through Tamang lands until reaching Kyanjin. Here we’ll spend a day exploring around the Gumba and village and can hike up the Kyanjin Ri Hill (4,850m/15,912ft) and see incredible views of; Mt Yubra (6,264m/20,511ft), Mt Changbu (6,251m/20,509ft, the Langtang Lirung (7,227m/23,711ft), the Yalla Peak (5,500m/18,045ft) and the Tserko Peak (5,749m/18,862ft)! We make our way back to Syabrubesi following the trail of the Langtang Valley trek passing by the destroyed Langtang Village due to the 2015 earthquake. After crossing the Bhote Khosi River we’ll reach back at Syabrubesi from where we’ll drive back to Kathmandu the next morning to conclude the Tamang Heritage Trail.

Book today with Royal Himalayan Holidays the Tamang Heritage trail of 11 days and see the best of the Langtang Valley and the Tamang people! This sustainable trek provides much-needed economic support to the local communities and helps in rebuilding the homes of the Tamang!

Frequently Asked Questions

Well first off, at RHH we take care in organizing any type of tour, trek, or adventure activity in Nepal. Furthermore, we provide a unique service by hiring only local and licensed guides. But the real reason you should book with RHH is, because of that touch of luxury that we provide in Nepal. All of our packages come with an All-Inclusive package, giving you more time to just enjoy your holiday. We provide luxury holidays in the Himalayas!

Booking with RHH has never been easier! Just use our easy-to-use website, select your package for Nepal, Bhutan, or Tibet and click Book Now to fill up your booking form. After receiving your booking form by auto email, our team will contact you back via email, to finalize your booking. It’s that easy!

Yes, all of our packages are based on luxury trips and can get pricy for the average budget trekker. We do however can change this during your booking should you wish. By lowering the accommodation type and switching to the public instead of private transport you can enjoy trips or treks with RHH without the luxury element. But then again would you sacrifice comfort for the price during a holiday? Enjoy the best of the Himalayas with our luxury packages. 

If you wish to book a budget trip with Royal Himalayan Holidays, you can just make any booking, but a request for a budget trip. Then after receiving your request our team can send you a budget itinerary for that package with a new and lower calculated rate per person. 

Almost all of our trips are family and child friendly. Of course, you’ll need to see a bit yourself, we think it’s logical that you can’t book a hard and strenuous trek while bringing children with you. For family and child-friendly trips or treks, we do recommend any of our tour packages or one of our short treks in Nepal that don’t reach too such high altitudes. 

No, Royal Himalayan Holidays do not have any hidden or additional fees after booking a trip. With us, full transparency is an important part of our customer relations! Hence, all rates are included within your package, of course, these do not include your personal expenses, such as drinks, souvenirs, tips, etc. 

Yes with RHH you have the option to book a non-English guide for your trip. If you would like to have a different language guide during your holiday we do insist on mentioning this during your booking so we have the time to organize, find, check and hire said guide for your trip. There are French, German, Dutch, and Spanish-speaking guides available.

Royal Himalayan Holidays does take great care of booking your accommodation during your holiday in Nepal. We book only the best available 4 to 5-star category hotel. These hotels are based on All-Inclusive plans and have luxury rooms as well as other facilities available for you to enjoy during your holiday. During treks, accommodation is limited to standard guest or tea houses, but at some overnight locations where there is luxury accommodation available, we plan to stay at those. 

Well, since ATMs don’t exist up high in the mountains we do recommend bringing some additional cash with you, preferably Nepalese Rupees or US Dollars. Calculate a 15 to 25 USD per day in the Himalayas. This way you can use extra facilities in the guesthouses such as WIFI usage. 

Yes, with RHH you have the option to tailor-make or customize an itinerary before booking a holiday. If you want to change a part of your itinerary during your holiday then RHH can organize for you, but at additional cost depending on the changes that have to be made.

No, international flights are not included in the package rate. With so many flight options nowadays we give you the freedom of choosing the best available flights from and to Nepal yourself. If you do require international flight tickets we can arrange this, but by experience, we found that our customers can get better international flight rates by themselves from their own respective countries. 

So Nepal has 4 seasons. Starting with spring, followed by the monsoon or rainy season going into fall/autumn and ultimately winter. The best times to book a trip or trek in Nepal will either be during spring or fall/autumn. Spring starts in March and ends at the end of May. During this season the winter cold is gone and the skies are clear blue with a few clouds here and there. Perfect for seeing those incredible mountain and valley views! Fall or autumn starts in September and runs until the end of November. This season is extra special in Nepal, not because of the clear skies and comfortable weather, but due to being the festival season. In October the biggest festival takes place in Nepal, namely Dashain and Tihar. To get the best experience in Nepal we do recommend booking either for the spring or fall/autumn seasons.

Almost all guesthouses have WIFI available and phone reception. Do note that this is not high-speed WIFI or perfect reception, you’re still in the remote Himalayas. During the trek, there will be areas with no reception or WIFI, meaning you’ll be completely cut out from the world and surrounded by nature! Exactly what a trek should be.

While tipping is not mandatory in Nepal, due to being a low-income country many of the workers do depend on it as a secondary income. Hence we do ask our travelers to give some gratuities at the end of your trip to your guide or driver. Common tips in Nepal for a service well performed are about 5 to 10USD a day. But once again it is not mandatory.

Yes with RHH you can extend or add extra days on your holiday to enjoy your trip further. We do also provide assistance in VISA extension should it be required as well as helping you choose new and different activities. You can even combine multiple tours or treks with each other, as well as doing additional activities such as hiking, or adventure packages such as rafting or paragliding. 

With Royal Himalayan Holidays you can even hold a special event such as a birthday celebration, company team building, anniversary celebration, marriage proposal and even hold a traditional Nepalese wedding. Do request us during your booking if you want us to organize such an event during your trip to Nepal.
