The Tamang Heritage Trail is the newest trekking route in the Nepal Himalaya. We have been researching this region since 2004 and it is now one of our favourite. Some Nepali NGOs have worked hard with local villagers to improve the trails and the result is an easy route through pristine mountain scenery. This will become one of the most popular short trekking routes in the years to come as it offers a great general overview of the Himalaya and its cultures and it is easy to get to from Kathmandu.
Tourists can enjoy hot bath in the healing hot-water spring at Tatopani before reaching Nagthali where the stay is a unique experience. The ancient monasteries and houses adorned with rich wood engravings at Thuman is an unforgettable experience.
