The Gurungs, a Tibeto-Burmese people, live mainly in the central midlands, from Gorkha and Baglung to the southern slopes of the Annapurnas. According to their legend, the Gurung were a Wandering tribe that traversed west across Tibet before their entry into the Mustang and Manag district of Nepal behind the Annapurna Himalayas.  One of the biggest Gurung settlements is the Ghandruk village of Annapurna Region, with its sweeping views of the Annapurnas and Machhapuchhare. The Gurungs have made up large numbers of the Gurkha regiments and army incomes have contributed greatly to the economy of their region.

Many Gurungs are farmers, growing rice, wheat, maize, and millet on steeply terraced hillsides. Their villages are often perched on the tops of ridges and their fields can be up to an hour's walk below. They also keep herds of sheep and goats - sometimes as a large village flock. During the summer months, the sheep are herded to higher pastures; at the end of the monsoon, they are herded back down to the villages.

Gurungs are very rich in their traditions and culture. The Gurung dress is also known as PUD-PUDE and Bhoto, Jama with Khukuri. Rodhi is a traditional gathering place for singing and dancing. Ghatu is a famous Dance drama performed by the Gurung people.
