    The Tamang Heritage Trail lies west of Nepal's Langtang Valley. The scenic route passes through mainly Tamang villages in the mid-hills that receive considerably fewer tourists than the traditional, adjoining Langtang trek. Although the mountains are a little farther away, Himalayan panoramas and village vistas are sensational and home stay enables a deeper cultural experience than will be had on the more established routes. The Tamang ethnic group comprises about 6 percent of the total population of Nepal and Tamang are the predominant inhabitants of Rasuwaa District where this trek and the Langtang Valley lie. Tamang have a distinct language and manner of dress, ornamentation and craftsmanship, and many homes have ornately carved wooden windows and porch fronts. This book provides the basics for entering the heart of Tamang country.QUICK FACTS AND HIGHLIGHTS,BEST TIME TO VISIT: all season (views are clearest from fall to spring).ENVIRONMENT: mid to high-hills.
