Nepali villages are very united communities. Everyone knows everyone, their families, and their ancestors. Often communities are connected to marriage.
Nepal’s mountainous terrain and lack of roads mean that it takes time to get around, and getting to things like schools or hospitals is very difficult. It is common for children to spend two hours on their way to school, or at the hospital for a two-day trip.
As a result, Nepali villages are largely independent. There is little evidence of foreign country’s innovation – either limited or no stores at all, no government signals, no police or health workers. For now, there are many places with different stores, police security, and health workers. People from cities try to help people of Nepali villages. Most have no electricity and few have running water. If people want something then they usually have to do it themselves.
These divisions have resulted in countless ethnic, linguistic, and cultural groups. Usually, one village tradition differs from the other village tradition., even if we walk that lasts only an hour.
Like this, it’s hard to get used to, but one thing you have in common: it’s a very difficult life.

More about life in the Nepali villages
Nepali villages are healthy, noisy, and social places as well as Nepal’s social, economic, and political centers of health.
Each village is usually made up of different ethnic groups living together peacefully, and who can restore their history and social relations for at least a few generations.
Often members of villages are related to each other and to other villages in the region and families often look for opportunities to marry their daughters and sons. Villages are often widespread.
Nepali villages houses are usually built with local materials; in the south where houses are made of mud and grass to cool the inhabitants, and houses in the cold north were built of stone and thatched roofs.
Nepali villages are very close to the central settlement under a large tree and veranda in many houses to enable the villages to meet and communicate.
The work in the villages is almost entirely agricultural and low-paid, which is fortunate as shopping malls are often few except for wandering traders bringing limited items to their heads and back. Even if a citizen had money, they would have no place to spend anything!
Those who wish to make money are forced to leave the country and move to the city (mainly Kathmandu) or abroad to a place like India or the Middle East. This also poses serious social problems as many poorer communities lose all men and women except the young and the old.
No doubt, Nepali villages have hard life and they always has to struggle for their livelihood.
