Heading north through to Syabru Besi, our adventure begins with the trek to the Gatlang village. The biggest Tamang village in the region, Gatlang is known for unique cultural shows, beautiful wooden houses with prayer flags and wooden carvings, and terraced fields. After exploring the beautiful village and the famous Yak Cheese Factory and Gyanjin Gompa of Gatlang, we shall trek passing the other villages of Nagthali, Thuman, Timure, and Bridim before heading back to Syabru Besi and Kathmandu to end this enriching and adventurous trekking experience.
