65% of the population have Nepali as their mother tongue, and the language is also spoken by up to eight million people in India. In addition, about 12 other languages are spoken with a greater prevalence in Nepal. In addition, 40 additional languages and dialects.
The majority of the population speaks Indo-European languages, but a large number of ethnic minority groups in the hilly and mountainous region speak languages belonging to Tibetan language groups.

Nepal uses Nepal Time (NPT) all year round, and the time difference between Denmark and Nepal therefore depends on what time of year you travel.
