Miss UK Nepal is back in full swing this summer! After a gap of a year, this years Miss UK Nepal pageant has eight contestants from the UK competing for the main crown. The first Miss UK Nepal took place in 2010 with Nabina Gurung winning the title followed by Gaumaya Gurung, Durga Gurung and Nia Dewan.

The Public Choice Award voting round has already gone live on the HAB website – click here to vote -. You can get to know the contestants by watching the video by Mani Ram Rai above. The grand finale takes place on Sunday August 21st at The Empire in Aldershot. The beauty pageant will be choreographed by Priyanka Karki who will be in the UK to spend time with the contestants in August.

All the best to the young ladies. Keep reading everything, from world news, UK news to keeping up with what’s happening in Nepal. Perfect your speech and speak in the language you feel most comfortable in. Don’t overdo your English accent or force yourself to speak in Nepali if you know that is not your strength. Most importantly, enjoy yourself and find your strength.

  1. Hi lex.this is the first article i found that has a little more information about the peagent and contestants. It seems like the Miss Uk Nepal has no official pages or no clear details and informations available (at least i can´t find them ). i always come to know about it from you . Would really be nice if the organizers for Miss UK Nepal could hire you officially as their event promoter .
