An innovative organisation 'Pink Mountain' is set to capitalise on the potential tourism implications of the new constitution.
The organisation, headed up by Sunil Babu Pant, Nepal's first publicly gay lawmaker and a leading gay rights activist, are planning to host gay weddings at an altitude of 5,360m at Everest basecamp.
Pant, well known and respected by gay activists worldwide, told the Daily Telegraph: "Most Asian countries don't welcome gay visitors, so we can have the maximum benefit for the Nepal economy which is fragile after years of war."
Same sex marriages are currently not allowed in the UK, instead we have a civil partnership union. In England and Wales there are a plethora of restrictions on where a civil union can take place, but it would seem that Scotland has less restrictions and the summit of Ben Nevis is available.
At only 1,344m it might not be much competition for the stunning vistas of the Himalaya.
