|| Situated over a beautiful mountainous
terrain, to the backside of northeast of the country's capital city, Kathmandu,
the Hyolmo region, which encompasses the northwest part of Sindhupalchowk,
upper northeast part of Nuwakot and southeast part of Rasuwa districts.
The population of Hyolmo indigenous people is more then 50 thousand within
Nepal. But unfortunately, the population of Hyolmo indigenous people is found
mentioned only 579 in the demographic census carried out in 2001 by the
government. However, the number of people speaking native Hyolmo language
is found mentioned 3,986 in the same census. The indigenous language, rich
culture and tradition that they have been practicing from time immemorial
give them an unique identity of their own Hyolmopa or simply Hyolmo people
as they are known and confined to the only region except for the small groups
of emigrants who have settled elsewhere in and outside the country. Considerable
numbers of Hyolmo indigenous people are residing in Kaski, Chitawan, Lamjung,
Ilam and Gorkha districts.
