Tamang Heritage Trail & City Tour
7 Days | October 2007

Friendly and enchanting Tamang peoples; I was the only westerner heading for the Tamang Heritage trail with everyone else heading for the Langtang area. Bathing with the locals and pilgrims in the hot springs at Tatopani was a highlight. Sharing memories of a recent trip to Mt Kailash and sharing Tibetan words and phrases was also very special. I found the area unspoilt by any excesses of infrastructure and tourist activity. It reminded me of my 1983 trek through Helambu. It was enriching indeed to pass through the many Tamang villages, to follow the rythmns of the farming day, to visit a school and many homes offering simple refreshments. The viewpoint for Tibet, Langtang, Gosainkund and more provides the pure mountain inspiration; smiles and spontaneous and generous welcome and curiosity transcend the backbreaking rural poverty and are moving indeed. The haunting beauty and isolation of this region, though, makes you wonder at your own privilege to be a visitor and your own responsibility to value and to enrich this living heritage both during and after the trip.

Renjo-La Pass Trek & Heritage Tour
14 days | March - April 2007

Found social tours to be most helpful in organizing an excellent guide and porter for our trip.  Would definitely recommend using you to others to ensure that after having spent a lot of money actually getting the Nepal, the trip is not spoilt by having a guide and porter who may not be as fully experienced as the people we got thru socialtours.  Happy to discuss any issues with people thinking about the trip by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I had an amazing experience! I enjoyed the trek a lot despite the leeches. It was great to see such beautiful countryside, villages and people. I felt very welcomed and well looked after throughout trip.
