Photo Description:
Sailung is one of the wonders that Nepal has to offer. A place which is yet to be explored by the tourists. This picture was taken in Sailung, the place which offers magnificent views over Kalinchowk to the Annapurna, Langtang, Gauri Shanker, Everest and Kanchenjunga ranges, to the South the Mahabharata hills roll over the Sun Koshi River and down to the Terai below.

Sailung is regarded by the Tamangs as the abode of the territorial deity, Sailung Phoi Sibda Karpo, Sailung’s “White Male Lord of the Earth”. The souls of the ancestors together with the “Lord of the Earth” guarantee the well-being of the people and the fertility of the soil.
