What are the pros and cons of living in Nepal?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Nepal responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Nepal often appreciate the country's stunning natural beauty, its friendly people, and its low cost of living. They also enjoy the opportunity to experience a different culture and explore the many historical and religious sites. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the lack of reliable internet access and the limited availability of western amenities to be a challenge. Additionally, the language barrier can be a source of frustration for those who don't speak Nepali," explained one expat living in Nepal.
