She is studying management and was helping her parents during the holidays when the pictures were taken at the Fishling suspension bridge between Gorkha and Chitwan.
The 18-year-old told BBC Nepali she learnt of her new-found fame from a friend.
She told the broadcaster: 'My friend asked me if I am the same girl whose photos became viral on Facebook but I didn't know.
'Then she sent me the pictures and when I saw them, I found it was me. On that day, I came to sell the vegetables to help my parents. When I was on my way to sell the vegetables, RupChandra [the photographer] took my picture - but at that point of time, I didn't know that I was being photographed.'
Miss Shrestha said she was thrilled by the publicity and would jump at the chance to follow the Pakistani tea seller into modelling.
