Trip Information

Best season for Tamang Heritage Trail Trekking

The best seasons to do the Tamang Heritage Trail are spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November). Because the altitudes on this trek aren’t especially high, it is also a comfortable trek for the winter, and views are likely to be good at this time. Just bring some warm layers if you are trekking during the winter season.

How to get there ?

The only way to reach the start of this trek is to travel overland ( by bus or jeep ) from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi ( starting place of our trek ). Local buses takes much longer than they need to because they stop frequently to pick up people along the way.  A private four-wheel drive is much more comfortable which is recommended.

To rental gear or buying, please check at least 2 shop to know the price and quality. Always ask for good rates.

Environmentally friendly

Water bottle to refill the boiled water from the lodges or iodine tablets to purify the water, rubbish bag to bring till the lodge or to the right place. If you want to prevent altitude sickness, you will have to drink plenty of water.

We discourage not to buy Mineral bottle water but use boiled water from the local lodges and put water purify tablets. Plastic bottles are difficult to dispose off and have become an environmental problem in mountains.
