People and Language of Nepal

Nepal is a colorful garden of “ Char Jat Chattis Barna”, they say. This means In Nepal, there are 4 major castes and 36 different ethnic groups that are living in mutual harmony with each other.

Visiting Nepal means you will be visiting different people of different castes and ethnicities. Here, you will see people of different races as well. Bahun Chhetris are the Aryans. However, the Newars, Limbus, Tamang, Sherpas, and many others are Mongolians.

If you go to the Hilly and Terai regions in Nepal, you will see the dominance of Aryans. In the Himalayas, most of the people are Sherpas, Gurungs, and Magars who are Mongolian. No matter what race, caste, or gender, people in Nepal live in harmony and maintain national integrity.

Nepali is the official language used in Nepal. However, according to the national census held in 2011, there are 123 different languages spoken as a mother tongue. The variation in language is due to the presence of various ethnic groups and communities. People of different castes and ethnicity have their uniquely spoken languages. Most of the languages spoken in Nepal belong to the Indo-Aryan and Sino-Tibetan languages.
