    The main inhabitants of the area are descendants of Tibetans from Kerung who intermingled with the Tamang people of the Helambu area. Tamang communities are generally found at higher elevations and many of the people earn their living from cultivation and the extraction of forest products. They are mainly sheep and yak herders but grow some hardy grains and vegetables also.
