Compared to previous editions of the beauty pageant, Miss UK Nepal 2016 was organised in a surprisingly professional way.

The organising team of the pageant, which mostly includes Shanti Gurung had brought in Priyanka Karki as the trainer and choreographer. Priyanka was seen working hard training the participants for the Finale show.
