According to our 15 days Tamang Heritage Trail and Langtang Trek itinerary the trek begins with a 9 hour bus ride from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. The first part of the trek is more of a cultural experience; therefore, the trail heads west of the Bhote Koshi River towards the Tamang villages that offer the best in Tibetan influenced Tamang settlement: their culture, lifestyle, craftsmanship, housing style and their carving skills. The second part of the trek head east of the Bhote Koshi river, focusing more on nature and adventure.

Spring – Mid-March, April and May, perfect months to plan Tamang Heritage Trail and Langtang Valley Trek. These months support us with warm weather, clear skies, good temperature and the best visibility.

Autumn – Mid September, October and November, perfect months to plan Tamang Heritage Trail and Langtang Valley Trek. These months support us with better visibility, clear blue skies and excellent trail.

Winter – December, January and February are good months to plan Tamang Heritage Trail and Langtang Valley Trek, provided you can stand the cold weather.

Summer – Mid June, July and August are not the best months to plan Tamang Heritage Trail and Langtang Valley Trek as the monsoon rain affects everything, that is, trail, weather, temperature as well as visibility. But still the trek can be planned.
