The World Harmony Run in Nepal took place in December 1994 for the first time. The torch relay started from Nagarkot where Mt. Ghenge Liru in the Lantang range was dedicated as Sri Chinmoy Peace Mountain. The 35-kilometer race concluded in the heart of the city- the Basantapur Square of Kathmandu.

During the journey, the runners stopped at local schools to share the ideals of world harmony in school curriculums. The Run also met school students and officials of Budhanilkantha School, the national school of Nepal.

In 1998 Nepal saw its second harmony run. This time the race started from Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha. Many sports personalities like Sangina Baidya had participated. An elephant in a local village even held the torch with its trunk!

The race which also included a relay from Bhaktapur to Basantapur Square, ended in Kathmandu valley. The final ceremony was held in Yak and Yeti.

The Harmony Torch was held by the then Prime Minister G.P.Koirala, Ex-Prime Ministers, Members of Parliament and political leaders like Kirti Nidhi Bista, Rajeswor Devkota, Beni Bahadur Karki, P.L.Singh and the mayor of Kathmandu Valley who had even participated in the opening and closing ceremony of the Run. The event also saw many more national figures coming together in a true spirit of goodwill and held the torch for a few minutes.

The 1998 World Harmony Run was followed by another Harmony Run in 2001. This time the race took place from Patan Square of Lalitpur till Basantapur Square of Kathmandu. The event was opened by the then Mayor of Patan and closed by the Deputy Mayor of Kathmandu Metroploitan City in Basantapur, Kathmandu. The message of harmony and oneness was felt by all.
