Nov. 28 (UPI) -- A Nepal teenager danced her way to a Guinness World Record when she performed a solo dance routine for 126 hours.
Bandana Nepal, 17, began her record attempt Friday and stopped dancing Wednesday afternoon, when she was awarded the record by a Guinness adjudicator.
Nepal's dance, performed at the Big Foodland restaurant located in Kathmandu, lasted for a total 126 hours, beating the previous record-holder, India resident Kalamandalam Hemlatha, who danced for 123 hours and 15 minutes in 2011.
"I am very glad to see my daughter being able to keep the world record," the girl's father, Ram Nepal, told Xinhua, China's state-run news agency. "This achievement is not just of hers, but she has also set the nation's name at the global front. It's a moment of pride for all of us."
