The Tamang people inhabiting these areas still follow their traditional ways of life as most of their culture puts emphasis on not diverging from their cultural roots and thus one would be pleased to see traditional people who have so far kept their way of life without insulating themselves from greater mainstream of Nepalese society.

Every villages have their traditional Gompas, shamans(jhankris) and every family has their special Buddhist ‘Yidam’ and book to practice every morning.
