Ahead of the service site of Taplejung district (5,900 meters high) the glacier, Kumbakarna Mountain appeared, which stands at an altitude of 7,710 meters. The Kirati peoples called  “Faktanglung”. The Kumbakarna Mountain lies in  Falatanglung-6 Lelep in Taplejung district

Kumbhakarna Mountain’s circular-shaped head can be viewed with pleasure. Because of the stand with Kanchangangha mountain and its shape also same as Kanchanjangha, many people confused. In comparison to Kanchanjha, the peak is 876 meters shorter. The fog will play hide and seek with the mountains. Sometimes it covers the whole, sometimes leaves.

Sometimes the flying fog brings rain and sometimes snow rain. Kumbhakarna has been a tourist destination in the past. Foreign tourists travel to Kanchanjha via the Himalayan foothills. This area, which is becoming increasingly windy and difficult to live for a long time, is now being developed as a religious tourism area. The importance of this Kumbhakarna mountain has increased because of the Kirat guru’s Atma Nanda Linden had to stay there for 6 days.

This year there was a call for special service from November 7 to 9. According to Himali Chungda, a tourist entrepreneur said this is the first time that domestic tourists have come in such large numbers. When the monsoon is over, they start forming teams in the philosophy of Faktanglung. Since it is raining, each bag is packed with plastic. You need an umbrella and extra plastic.

The highest risk here is in the cold near the settlement of Lalep Khumbachen. It is difficult to manage because foreign tourists to come and serve as it is difficult to accommodate the domestic tourists.

There are only half a dozen houses here. That is why pilgrims have the heaviest clothing. On the journey so far, everyone is carrying bags in big bags. Those who pass through the village carry the Dhakar. Pilgrims have everything from worshiping material, tents, and food in their bags. Because of the changing times and commuters prefer to travel empty, there is a high demand for hotels and lodge.

The journey from here begins at Larumba in Ilam. The pilgrims begin the journey with the blessings of the religious leader Linden. It takes 22 days to reach Faktanglung and return by walking. By Bus, the journey from Taplejung to Fungling is completed in a week.


From the headquarters to Ranipul of Tapethok, the bus runs. The fare from Fungling is Rs.700. This place is called Paraumfuku, Marumfuku by Kirats. It means the father god and goddess. Bahadur Palungwa, the leader of the Kirat religion, said that Faktalung would be considered as the patriarchal monastery.

According to him, the existence of Kirat religious people is linked to Faktanglung. Once in life, it is necessary to reach for worship. Along with Nepalese people from the UK, the US, Hong Kong, India’s Darjeeling, and Burma are coming here. This year, 62 people living abroad returned from Sukatars airport to Faktanglung.
