Culture in Nepal

Nepalese culture embraces diverse cultures belonging to more than 120 distinct ethnic groups present in Nepal. The culture of Nepal is expressed through the arts: music, painting, wood and stone sculpture and dance. This is why craftsmanship is important. The Nepalese speak different languages and dialects.
