Nepal has competed in twelve Summer Games, and in four Winter Olympic Games.

Tejbir Bura, a Nepali national, won an Olympic gold medal in mixed alpinism at the 1924 Winter Olympics for his role as a member of the 1922 British Mount Everest expedition.[1] However, as citizens of other countries took part in the expedition as well, the award went to a mixed team.[2] Furthermore, the International Olympic Committee website does not recognize this medal as official.[3]

Nepal's taekwondo practitioner Bidhan Lama won a bronze medal at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, however it isn't counted as an official medal since taekwondo was an exhibition sport during the 1988 Summer Olympics. Nepal has yet to win an Olympic medal.[4]

The Nepal Olympic Committee was formed in 1962 and recognized in 1963.
