Difficulties in Tamang Heritage Trek
Despite being one of the most accessible trekking destinations in Nepal, there are some difficulties that you need to consider during your adventure.
Drop Steep Hills
One of the most challenging aspects of the Tamang Heritage trek is the endless hills and valleys, which means you must ascend and descend the trail quite often. It can cause you to be tired fast and will hurt your legs and back. The biggest challenge is getting rid of the mental blockade and feeling the thrill of adventure.
Another difficulty in trekking is being familiar with the altitude when which you reach the trek. You will be trekking through a height over 3100m, so you must be familiar with this height. Otherwise, the chances of headache, sickness, breathing difficulty, and nausea are common.
As in every trek walking a long distance is common. However, in Tamang Trek, it can be more than usual, as you may even have to walk for nine hours on some days. Hence, you must prepare for long walks, carry a walking stick, and rest frequently.
