Best season for Tamang Heritage Trail Trekking
The best seasons to do the Tamang Heritage Trail are spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November). Because the altitudes on this trek aren’t especially high, it is also a comfortable trek for the winter, and views are likely to be good at this time. Just bring some warm layers if you are trekking during the winter season.
How to get there ?
The only way to reach the start of this trek is to travel overland ( by bus or jeep ) from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi ( starting place of our trek ). Local buses takes much longer than they need to because they stop frequently to pick up people along the way. A private four-wheel drive is much more comfortable which is recommended.

In Briddim, stay at a local homestay, which will also the great experience but may be a bit more basic.
