I was just talking to someone changing each voiced consonants for the
voiceless equivalent (b=p, g=k, d=t) and I thought about the fact that I
didn't know how was pronounced voiceless nasals.

after I remarked that I don't even know and I've never heard about a
language using such sounds.

Does someone has knowledge about a tongue using voiceless nasals?

I've been able to pronounce some but I've been unable to pronouce clearly a
difference between voiced and voiceless labiodental, retroflex, palatal and
velar nasals

So I imagine voiceless nasals must be billabial or

Are there natlangs where it exists?
