Introduction / History

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.


What Are Their Lives Like?

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. They bury the dead.
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 must migrate to get agricultural work.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Some of them are Hindus, some Buddhists and others follow the Kiranti religion religion.


What Are Their Needs?

Kulung villages are difficult to get to. There is a 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.


Prayer Points

Pray that their material needs will be met in such a way that they will give glory to the sovereign Lord.
Pray for spiritual openness and a desire for truth and righteousness.
Pray that Nepalese Christians will help lead the Kulung to Jesus Christ.
