Langtang Culture Trekking- 12 Days

Langtang  Culture Trekking blends an amazing cultural experience with unequaled mountain scenery and wild highlands.This relatively gentle circuit trek leads through the remote villages of the ethnic Tamang people who closely resemble their Tibetan ancestors in both appearance and traditions.The magnificent snowy peaks of Mt. Langtang, Kerung and Ganesh Himal provide a stunning backdrop as you walk through the valley amid rhododendron and bamboo forests and waterfalls.

The "Tamang Culture Trail" was opened as a government project to promote tourism in this region which has remained almost unknown to the world. Trekking the Langtang Tamang Culture trail is like stepping into a remote, majestic valley untouched by the rapid changes of modern civilization. Staying in guest houses of these welcoming Tamang people provides a cultural immersion into the traditions and religion of these warm-hearted people. Their centuries-old Tibetan heritage is apparent in the ancient monasteries, stone houses, carved wooden porches, culture, clothing and crafts.

The Langtang Culture Trek starts with an 8-hour drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi, 1505m. Our trek starts with a steep climb to Goljung La Pass, 2300, where we pause to enjoy the grand view of Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal, Shishapangma and Kerung before continuing to Gatlang, 2238m, hillside village of stone houses.

A soak in the natural hot-springs at Tatopani, 2607m, refreshes us before our climb to Nagthali, 3165m. Ornate wood carvings mark the ancient monasteries and houses at Thuman, 2338m. At Briddim, 2239m, there are 24 houses which provide home stay and a taste of the warm hospitality the Tamang people are known for. We spend an extra day in Briddim to relax and discover more about the local traditions of this wonderful region before descending to our starting point at Syabrubesi.

Best Seasons for Langtang  Culture Trekking

Langtang  Culture Trek is a Tea House/Lodge Trek

Accommodation is included in the cost of your package. Annapurna Foothills Treks takes great care to arrange the most comfortable accommodation possible throughout your stay.

During the trek, the nights will be spent in clean and comfortable tea houses with plenty of character and good food. The simple rooms usually have two narrow beds. The family run lodges are a great place to get to know the Nepalese people. In Nepalese culture, a guest is equal to god, and surely this has become even more of a reality since the tourism industry has improved their meager opportunities to earn. You will be made very welcome

Meals on the Langtang Culture Trek

Three meals a day are included during your Langtang Valley Trek. The menu will be fairly simple, but freshly cooked and hygienic. You can enjoy typical Nepali, Tibetan and Sherpa food, as well as all types of international cuisine. Dinners and breakfasts will be provided in the teahouse/lodge where you spend the night. Lunches will be eaten in a teashop on the way to the destination of the day.


Drinking Water on Langtang Tamang Culture Trek

We suggest that you drink boiled water or bring chlorine tablets to purify the normal water available in the guest houses along the way. There is a small fee charged for the boiled water. Although mineral water is available in most places, there is no provision to dispose of the plastic bottles, so we encourage the guests to do what they can to protect the environment.



If you have a reasonable level of fitness, this trek should be more than manageable. The altitude becomes more noticeable the higher we go, so we walk at a slow pace and take plenty of breaks to rest and acclimatize.

Local Customs You Should Know About for Langtang Culture Trek

Ethnic groups of the hilly and mountain regions are predominantly Buddhist, and you will see many mani stones, stupas, gumbas and prayer wheels. It is respectful to pass these objects with your right side nearest to the object, in a clockwise direction. Avoid sitting or standing on mani stones, stupas, tables used for worship or anything that is a religious symbol, as that is considered disrespectful.
