The Chhetri are a caste in Nepal. They correspond to the Indian Kshatriya, the warrior caste. Together with the Brahmins are the Chhetri at the top of the Nepalese caste society. They are widespread throughout Nepal and almost exclusively Hindu. Official figures are not available, however, as the Nepalese census does not capture the caste. From the ranks of Chhetri comes from the former Nepalese royal family.
