In this paper, the author discusses the history and current status of the Chantyal people and their language, a Tibeto-Burman language in the Chantyal-Gurung-Manang-Tamang-Thakali [CGMTT] group, spoken in the Central Nepal region. He shows how the language underwent the curious, simultaneous 'fall and rise' of the title, and how the language is currently undergoing a slow and, mostly likely, inexorable decline, the last 'fall' of the title.
