Who are the most richest people in Nepal? There is no clear answer to the question because there is no any private and govermental body who keeps an account of the income and property of any Nepalese citizens. Recently, Binod Chaudhary from Nepal had been listed in Forbes magazine as a billionire. According to the record of Forbes it could be clearly analysed that Binod Chaudhary is the most richest person of Nepal. I want to list out some rich people who are among the richest person in Nepal depending upon some facts and rumors.
