There is an ancient song “Gyanaka Games Phepkaziam’ which means appeared from China, proves that Tamang is the oldest Yambu tribe migrated from China to Nepal.

The Tamang Heritage Trail offers a beautiful and picturesque landscape of the Himalayas and some insights into the cultural aspects of Tamang Tribe which is pretty similar to that of the Tibetan people.
