This trail is perfect for those adventurers who would like a unique experience to see the traditional, untouched Tamang heritage, customs, and lifestyle. It exceeds an altitudinal range of 6,450 m (21,160 ft) and covers an area of 1,710 km2 (660 sq mi) in the Nuwakot, Rasuwa, and Sindhulpalchok Districts of the central Himalayan region encompassing 26 village communities.

The Tamang people are descendants from Tibet and are not accustomed to many tourists, thus the culture here is virtually untouched. Also, in March and April, the rhododendron forests are in bloom and full of many different species of trees, birds, and butterflies. There is also a viewpoint at Goljung pass from where we can see the awe-inspiring views of Langtang and Kerung (Tibet). You might even see bears, leopards, red panda, or musk deer on this trek. This recently developed, off-the-beaten-path route combines picturesque landscapes, luring white peaks and scattered ancient villages. Not to be missed.
