Nepal is said to have had a fight with Tibet many years ago for salt and the biggest war took place between Nepal and Tibet. This lies in Langtang area which is one of the most famous trekking routes in Nepal. As this area share boarder with Tibet, many people are engaged in salt trade. They also sell Changra meat with foodstuffs from the south.

Developed by the Tourism for Rural Poverty Alleviation Program, the "Tamang Heritage Trail" is the newly developed tourism product, off the beaten track, which highlights an ancient lifestyle combining it with picturesque scenery and healing baths in natural hot springs.

The people of this region are mostly Tibetans who came from Kerung in Tibet across the border and settled in Nepal. In earlier days, the citizenship of Nepal would not be offered to real Tibetans, so they changed their ethnicity to Tamang, which is what they still write till date. The cultural and traditions of these people are similar to the Tibetan across the border.
