Everest High Passes

...we shouldn't finish without mentioning admiration for the endlessly busy Mr Lama. He like all World Expeditions staff we met, was very charming and knowledgable, this characteristic seems to be a requirement for employment with the company

Tamang Heritage Trail

The 'Tamang Heritage Trail' is an exciting trekking route located between Langtang and the Ganesh Himal. A culturally rich region steeped in Tibetan tradition, the local Tamang people are some of the warmest and most welcoming people in Nepal. Within easy access of Kathmandu we ascend the road north towards the Tibetan borderlands and enjoy a circuit trek through picturesque villages, terraced fields, and peaceful valleys where few trekkers venture. Continuing north towards Tibet we soak up the heritage and appreciate a local fort, monastery and exquisite local architecture of the Tamang homes. We take a rest day in Briddim to observe the construction of the new monastery and discover more about the local traditions of this wonderful region. Away from the main tourist trail, Tamang is a rewarding Himalayan region to visit. Please note that the condition of the trails in this region have changed since the earthquake of 2015. Trekkers should be prepared for a few sections of less defined trails, with some steeper and longer climbs and some longer trekking days. Some of the villages, including Briddim and Thuman, were damaged by the earthquake. We use the same trails as those used by the locals who live here, and you will observe first-hand the rebuilding and regeneration that is taking place here following the 2015 earthquake.
