Khumche Gumba

The traditional culture of Himalayan Region in Nepal is mostly Buddhist and so as Barpak. The people of Barpak and its surrounding villages such as Laprak, Gumda, Singla, Ghyachow, Dhansira, Saurpani practice the Buddhist culture. There are some Monks in other villages but in Barpak there are some number of senior Lama Gurus and many junior monks who are studying in Buddhist Monastry in Kathmandu and in Bodhgaya, India. Even though people of Barpak practice Buddhism since many years from generation to generation, the Kumche Gomba was established only in 18/01/1999 with help of Buddhist Philosophy Promotion and Monastery Development Committee and local's participation. But it is totally destroyed by earthquake on 25th April 2015.

With the help of Very Venerable Guru Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche and Buddhist Philosophy Promotion and Monastery Development committee, the destroyed Gomba is under Rebuilding process. The Gumba (Community) hall will be used for various events and programs of the community.
