The Kulung are the people of Rai and Kirant descent, inhabiting Nepal and parts of northeastern India. Their language of the same name is closely related to the fellow Kiranti languages Bantawa and Puma. Alternate names for the language include Khulunge Rai, Kulu Ring, Khulung and Kholung. The Kulung trace their lineage to descent from the Kiranti ruler Khambu. The early Kulung people migrated from the Tarai - the lowlands of Nepal and settled in the Hongu valley. The ethno-linguistic region inhabited by the Kulungs is called the "Mahakulung" is located in the Sagarmatha Zone.
