Nepal is predominately a Hindu culture so most of the rituals follow the core tradition of the Hindus. The body will be transported by a van-ambulance and cremated on the banks of the holy River or somewhere near a holy place.
The corpse will be wrapped in a white/red cotton cloth and a garland of flowers will be stretched along the length of the body and following a short ceremony, a mourner will light the funeral pyre. At the end, the ashes will be collected and placed into an urn.
The cremation process is completely different than what most people may be used to in the West because it is not done with a machine, but in a traditional style of having a pyre, a stack of wood, in a open public area. The whole cremation process will take about 4 hours, but sometime we have to wait in a queue for an hour or two.
