This VDC is mainly inhaited by limbu an Mongolian descendant, including Angbuhang, an indigenous tribe. This VDC produces cash crops like orange, cardamom and tobacco. West/south to North/east orientation of the land and south facing slopes provide more sunny hours.[citation needed] Change has a hiking route (now being introduced as a rhododendron hiking trail) Taplejung-Gorja-Basantapur, which passes from the middle along its length. Gorja is a local camping site and picnic spot.
