12 Things That Happens Only In Nepal And We Think It’s Completely Normal

Nepal is home to some of the highest peaks in the world. The country, being small in land area, compensates it with pristine beauty. Mother Nature has truly blessed this Himalayan nation with some of the breathtaking landscapes you can not find anywhere in the world.

One can witness some of the strangest social etiquettes that have no rationale to it whatsoever.
