Society in Nepal

Society in Nepal is made up of a very complex interwoven mat of different peoples interacting with each other whilst holding different beliefs and customs.

It has often been argued that the reason Nepal has one of the most plural societies in the world is due to the mountains blocking interaction between villages and stopping cultures becoming mixed together.

Despite this diversity, there is little social conflict in Nepal and people generally accept differences between one household and another.

A rigid social hierarchy may promote people getting along, but it is also true that the strength of local community created due to the lack of state infrastructure also is important in making Nepalese communities so peaceful and open.
