1) From the Mango Tree and Other Folktales from Nepal by Kavita Ram Shrestha and Sarah Lamstein. 1997. All levels. Shrestha is a Nepalese. Includes 15 stories; bibliography.


2)
One story here. When you get to this page, keep clicking on the pointing finger for each page of the story.
miscositas.com | "The Tiger and the Brahmin"

3) Patricia Hitchcock's book The King Who Rides A Tiger ( 1966) is an anthology of just Nepalese tales. Books 2 & 4 from the Asian Cultural Center for Unesco, Folk Tales from Asia for Children Everywhere (Weatherhill, 1975 & 1976) each have one (pp 28-33 & 42-46, respectively) Both are over 25 years old, so you may have to find them in a library or out-of-print book search.


4) I came across this saying at the end of a folktale from Nepal, which is lovely as well. I have never read it before and there is no attribution but I thought it was beautiful. Passing the beauty along.

May the narrator of this tale be blessed with a golden garland,
And the listener, with a flower garland;
May this tale remain in the heaven,
To be here again
At the time of next narration.
You can find the story here:
