Lamichhane attributed her longevity to keeping active.

"You will probably die earlier. People of this modern age have too much stress. And those who do not work or are idle in their old age won't live long. If you study a lot and work hard, you'll live a long life. Be happy!" she told TIG Media.

The super centenarian also shared a surprising fact about her life -- she's had a daily pack-and-a-half habit for the past 95 years.
