Palung massif which has a sharp contact with the country rocks, is one of those six granitic bodies that are situated in the Mahabharat Range of Central Nepal. This massif is a multiphase intrusive containing a number of facies rock varieties. The most widely distributed facies are coarse grained inequigranular porphyritic tourmaline granites in the central part and inequigranular-tourmaline granites with portions of micropegmatitic texture in the apical part. Mineralogical and geochemical studies reveal that these granites are probably leucocratic differentiate of palingenetic granitic magma.
