I had the most amazing time and memories! You get to see so much nature, landscape, animals, mountains, and summits, meet actual locals, visit cheese farms, try local food… and have almost all weather possible from hot to cold to rain and snow on the way.
Most recommend trek.

Most treks in Nepal take you thru “towns” of hotels occupied by other trekkers. The Tamang Heritage Trek takes you thru active villages where children are in school, farmers in their fields, and a few guest houses (“hotels”) are occupied by a few trekkers — you’re in the minority here, in the middle of rural Nepal and Tamang villages.
We found the trek to be a great way to “warm up” for Langtang and get acclimated while challenging our hill-climbing muscles. While the trek can be done on its own, connecting to Langtang saves another day of up and down.
We highly recommend this trek.
