Nepal - Land of Himalayas

Lumbini Maya Devi Garden

Situated at the laps of the mighty Himalayas, Nepal (officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal) is a landlocked sovereign state in South Asia. With an area of 147,181 square kilometers (56,827 square miles) and a population of approximately 27 million, Nepal is the world's 93rd largest country by land mass and the 41st most populous country. The mountainous north of Nepal has eight of the world's ten tallest mountains, including the highest point on Earth-- Mount Everest, called Sagarmatha in Nepali. Nepal is home to more than 240 peaks over 20,000 ft (6,096 m) above sea level. The southern region, Terai is exceedingly fertile and humid. Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha, is located in this region. Lumbini is one of the holiest places of one of the world's great religions, and its remains contain important evidences about the nature of Buddhist pilgrimage centers from as early as the 3rd century BC. A peculiar thing about Nepal is that it’s the only country in the world with a triangular flag.

Ranked as the second richest country in terms of water resources after Brazil, the nation is affluent in natural resources. On contrary, Nepal does not have access to the sea or oceans. But there are lots of rivers that flow from the Himalayas. Melting glaciers in the Himalayas result in the formation of rivers. Most of the tributaries flow through the mountain regions to the Terai. The main rivers of Nepal are Mechi, Koshi, Narayani, Gandaki, Karnali, and Mahakali. These rivers have several other tributaries. Green forest occupies about 37% of the total land of Nepal. The dense forests are home to several rare plants, animals, various kinds of herbs, atypical birds, etc. Nepal is one of the most beautiful as well as imaginative dreamlands in Asia. It is the richest country in the world in terms of bio-diversity due to its unique geographical position and latitudinal variation.

Nepal is home to the mightiest peaks on earth. The great Himalayan range in Nepal has eight out of fourteen of the world's 8000-meter peaks with a total number of 1310 snow peaks over 6000 meters which justify heaven for mountaineering in Nepal. The vast numbers of the snow-capped peaks offer the best choices for Himalaya expedition and climbing in Nepal. Whether the interest is simply climbing a miniature mountain or an expedition on 7000 or 8000-meter peak, climbing the Himalayas in Nepal has become a dream for most of the adventure enthusiasts and mountaineers in the world. It is undoubtedly the country’s biggest allure. However, there is much more to Nepal than just Mt. Everest and its minions. Mighty rivers tumble down from the Himalaya offering world class rafting opportunities and the flat lands of the Terai are dotted with jungle reserves that shelter some of Asia’s most exotic wildlife. Trekking in Nepal is not simply walking one day after another; it is rather a gradual way of experiencing Nepal’s diversity in terms of geography, people, religion and a wide range of culture. A trek can be a day hike to get to the top on a mountain or a ridge for the spectacular views of Himalayan peaks. Nepal, also known as the Himalayan Kingdom, has got all the spectacular assets to attract domestic or international tourists.
