Kulanga are widespread in the Buharskaia and Samarkanskaia region. The birds are surprisingly easy to handle and to train. They are very well adapted to hot and dry climatical conditions. It takes however a long time to mature and to develop its impressive constitution. The breed has been preserved to assure a genetical backup. Due to ethnic variety in the Caucasian and Central Asian republics names can differ due to the local langauge. In some old Russian publications therfor the breed is known under various names like: Dakan, Tokar and Assel.
