The Himalayas are inhabited up to an altitude of 4500m(15,00ft). People grow crops on incredibly steep and stony fields. So many Ethnic Tibetan groups have inhabited different the mountain region of Nepal with great biodiversity in cultural practice. They have to work hard for their livelihood and have little success to facilities such as schools and medical care. The different mountain tribal groups have similar dialects, food habits, dresses, culture, and tradition. It is very difficult to reach them because of their strong spiritual pride and tradition. Normally they do not mingle with any other groups. There are no roads to reach their villages; one has to walk through the hills and valleys for many days in order to arrive in their villages where medicine, food, and lodging facilities are not readily available.
