The newly opened Tamang heritage trail is the unique blend of the cultural richness and natural beauty as well as the panorama of the Mountains. Though this trekking region is near the capital city of Nepal Kathmandu, it is untouched by the roads and the urban lifestyle and the centuries-long culture and tradition of the Tamang and Sherpa people remain intact.
