Four main sects of Tibetan Buddhism and it all spread from Tibet. It includes:

Newer Buddhism of Nepal is different from Tibetan Buddhism. The latter is Mahayana school while Newer Buddhism belongs to Theravada school. However, the northern parts of Nepal are dominated with Tibetan Buddhism influence.
