Lamjung is one of Gandaki Province’s eleven districts which has its own distinct history and unique tourism destination. Being located in the mid hill regions of Nepal, its geography extends to the foothills of the Himalayas. The district’s name Lamjung derives from two separate words “Lama and Jong” meaning the palace of the monks. Its headquarter Besisahar is 175 km west of Kathmandu. On its northern border lies the Annapurna II, Lamjung, Manaslu and Himchuli mountains.

While the northern belt of the district is predominantly inhabited by Gurungs, the southern part has a large population of Brahmins and Chhetris. During the 16th century, the district was ruled by the Shah dynasty’s King Yashobramha Shah. There is a belief that Lamjung was the birth place of the Shah dynasty’s power center in the country’s political landscape. This mountainous district has many natural, cultural, social, religious and historical monuments and places that have relevance to tourism. The district falls under the popular Annapurna tourism area.

The district takes pride in its people’s way of life and culture and promotes community-managed accommodation, animal husbandry and collective labor in farming activities. Attractions in the district include witnessing the Ghatu and Arghau dance, observing marriage ceremonies of the Gurungs, Tamang and other indigenous communities and the practice of “Rodhighar” which is a communal living of young girls and boys (club) under the supervision of adults.

Ghale Gaun (village) which is renowned to represent Gurung heritage is one of Lamjung’s best tourism destinations. It lies north west of the district which is a part of the cultural belt up to Pokhara that depicts Gurung heritage.
