Oloangchung Gola is a antique suburb filled with stone-walled and stone-roofed houses in Taplejung district. Locally known as the Walung Holang- Northwest of Taplejung that borders Tibet. Known as one of the remotest trekking destination in Nepal,Walangchung Gola is surrounded by Sikkim to the East and in the North lies Tibet. Therefore the lifestyle here is discernibly influenced by Tibetan culture and religion. In the local language “gola” stands for ‘market’ , which means this has long been a Nepal-Tibet trade point. Being one of the most far- flung trekking destination of Nepal, it demands physical fitness and prior hiking experience in the alpine highlands. What makes the village houses exceptionally spectacular is that all of the houses here have stone walls and stone roofs and the infrastructure here is most basic – that contributes to the uniqueness and antiqueness of the settlement. There are other villages that surround Walangchung Gola : Yangma, Ghunsa, Khangbache, Lunthung and Lelep. Reputed for its off the beaten trail it offers stunning view of Mount Kanchenjunga and Mount Manaslu.
