The Tamang heritage trek is a wonderful place to experience the splendor of mountain ranges and traditions of the local people in the central vegetation of Nepal. The trail goes through the indigenous traditional village of the Tamangs. The warm traditional greetings hosted by the locals, sumptuous Tamang crafts, rituals, culture and festivals, costumes, lifestyle and the antique monasteries with distinct regional features boost the divinity of the trail. The trek offers a challenge in the wild zone of alpine region, smooth grassland and rhododendron forests. 

The trek begins from Syabrubesi or from Dhunche and goes through Goljung, Gatlang, Chilime, Thuman Timure, and Briddim. The trek with 24 home stay facilities at Briddimj, provides an opportunity to interact with the conventional yet hospitable farmers and herdsmen of the region. The recent tourism package emphasizes the traditional society along with the panoramic view and a tranquil bath in the natural hot springs.
