Nepal At A Glance
Nepal is small country. However, it has very much diversity in ethnic, cultural and natural forms. It is one of the best countries for adventurous tourism, as stated by the National Geography back in 2008. And it serves itself to more than fulfill the expectation of the tourists and whoever visit this admiring nation.
Talking about the physical location of the country, the country is lies in Indian subcontinent in the Asia. Nepal is surrounded by India on three sides- east, west and south while China surrounds the himalayan country from the northern side. That is why King Prithvi Narayan Shah once said that Nepal is a yam between two stones. Maybe he had realized the potential that Nepal holds long ago.
Nepal is a country of superlatives. It has 8 of 14 mountains in the world that are of more than 8,000m height including Mt. Everest, the highest peak of the world. It has the deepest gorge in the world in the KaliGandaki River. It also has the deepest valley of the world, the Arun valley. Not only this, the
country also contains wide ranges of animal and plant species that are not only rare in the country but in the whole world itself. Some of them are the Bengal Tiger, One-horned Rhino, Asian Elephant and many more. Nearly 30 million people reside in the area of the 147,181km square. The people here regard the guests as “dev” which, means god. So, Nepalese people have great respect and admiration for the tourists who visit this religious nation. Nepalese celebrate a wide range of festivals too. And tourists are more than welcome to come in Nepal for the experience of the festivals.
Nepal’s topography is very surprising too. Rising only 60meteres from the sea level to the world’s highest peak Mt. Everest and a very much difficult topography through the country, It is divided into three region- Himal, Pahad and Terai. The topography of Nepal transforms from the mountains to hills and then to plain fertile lands aswe come from north to the south, serving as home to wide range of species of flora and fauna.
