Tamangs are one of the largest ethnic groups of Nepal and constitute a meagre population in parts of India, Tibet and Bhutan.
In Nepal, the census of 2001 has traced a population of 1,282,304 Tamangs, ranking the fifth position in the country and the third among the indigenous nationalities. They are found mostly concentrated in the districts of the central region such as Dhading, Rasuwa, Makwanpur, Nuwakot, Kavrepalanchok, Sindhupalchok, Dolkha, Sindhuli and Ramechhap. Tamang are the largest population in all of the aforementioned districts except in Ramechhap and Dolkha, where they are the second largest. The other parts of the country from Mechi to Mahakali regions observe a sparse distribution of the Tamang population.
In India, Tamangs dwell in the hilly regions of Darjeeling, Dharamsala, Dehradun, Kalimpong, Sikkim and Dooars.
