The Gurang 

The Gurang are basically agriculturists. They are of Mongolian origin and they profess Hinduism. But in the early period they were, in fact, fond of using the services of the Lama instead of Brahmins for all priestly function. Now-a-days, they have a different tendency  and engage Brahmins also. This tribe  is divided into two branches, the Char Jat and Sora Jat. But the distinction  is now disappearing. Marriage between the two branches is now common. The Gurungs have their own languages which is called the Gurung Kura. The Gurungs in the urban areas now generally follow Hindu rituals.
