The Bahing are a subset of the Indigenous Kirat ethnic group, located widely in Okhaldhunga and Solukhumbu District. They can be found in some of the villages like Bulaadi, Chisopani, Manebhanjyang, Ratmaate, Lekh Kharka of the Okhaldhunga District, and in some other districts of eastern Nepal. Their language, also named Bahing, belongs to the family of Kiranti languages, a subgroup of Tibeto-Burman. They have two main festivals: Sakela and Sakewa Ubhauli.[1] The Bahing also worship in Shiva.
