The Kulung of Nepal have their own language and culture. They live in the Solukhumbu district of Sagarmatha Zone in east Nepal. They are a part of the Kirat people. Some were in the British military in the two World Wars.
The Kulung are exogamous, permitting marriage outside of their group. They are not allowed to marry within five generations of the mothers and seven generations of the fathers. Some of them are Hindus, some Buddhists and others follow the Kiranti religion. They bury the dead.
The Kulung are difficult to get to due to lack of suitable roads and this could be an obstacle to the gospel. There is a lack of electricity, clean drinking water and a lack of health services.
The Kulung work in agriculture and grow maize and millet. They fish and hunt. There is a lack of food due to poor land growing conditions and they have to migrate to get agricultural work.
* Scripture Prayers for the Kulung in Nepal.
Pray that Nepalese Christians will help lead the Kulung to Jesus Christ.
Pray that their material needs will be met too.
