  • People from nepal are considered as Nepalese but as a matter of fact there are indian people also living in Nepal. So, People from Nepal are considered as Asian

  • People From Nepal

  • There’s several explanations to answer your question. If you were pertaining to the main racial types of people living in nepal, the correct answer is aryan, mongolian, and mixed.

    To answer your question if they are considered asian, based on the map, yes they are asians. Nepal is part of southern asia.

    Now if you were to ask if they are all indians, the answer is no. Nepalese are not indians unless they were born in India. Hope my answer helped you

  • Indians ARE Asian

  • most of the people answering din’t get the question! I am a Nepalse by nationality- bt my ethnicity is Indian. Indian is not only a nationality- it is also an ethnicity. Basically in the US, mongoians are called asians- like chinese, Japs , korean or Thai. And Indian refer to the Aryans- even people in Arab are of Indian ethnicity. So, in Nepal the the tribes like NEWAR- 50-50, CONFUSES FOREIGNERS if they can be called indians or asians. Bascically there are both people in Nepal. The brahmins, CHettris and Thakuris along with the Madhesi people from terai are INDIAN in ethnicity. The RAIS, GURUNGS, SHERPAS, LIMBUS ARE ASIANS. AND NEWARS- MOST OF THEM CAN BE REFFERED ASIANS- MOS T OF THE NEWARS ARE MONGOLIANS i.e ASIANS

  • Nepalese are Nepalese. Not Indian or anything else. If you want to know the race of people in Nepal, many people do come from Aryan race in the southern part of the country and many people in the nothern part are from Asian race. But now, due to marriages and all between different races, they cannot be classified into just one of the race anymore.

    But, Nepalese are not Indians, we have a separate identity.

  • People from India are called Indian an people from Nepal are called Nepali. So although there are a big part of the people in Nepal have roots in India, you would call them Nepali. The word asian applies to all people from countries in Asia, so that would be fine as well but is more generic. Don’t forget there are a lot of people with roots from China/Tibet in Nepal as well, so calling them Indian would be wrong. In the south of Nepal people are more likely to have indian roots, and in the north (himalaya’s) they are more likely to have chinese roots.

  • Indian and Nepalese are Asians

  • Well India is in Asia and even though they are a mix I think they are just considered Nepalese or Asian
