One Sentence Summary: The article is a socio-cultural study of the Langtang region of Nepal.

Description: The article is a socio-cultural study of the Langtang region of Nepal. The brief survey of the Langtang region reveals that although the different population groupings living there share much in terms of a common economy, mutually intelligible languages, and a common religious tradition, relations between them, while cordial, are never intimate. Each household prefers to maintain their own ceremonies with their own religious specialities, avoiding intermarriage or close economic ties. Tibetans are the most outward looking by force of circumstance, realizing their need to create new economic opportunities and fully endorsing the value of modern education. Tamangs have been most affected by the influence of Hinduism and while there seems no likelihood that Buddhism will decline in the foreseeable future they accept their place in the multi-ethnic mosaic of Nepal.
