Nepal


Nepal is officially recognized as a Federal Democratic Republic. Positioned between China and India, Nepal is divided geographically into three belts: the mountains, the hills and the flat-land terai.

Nepal is home to eight of the world’s ten tallest mountains, including the highest point on Earth, Mount Everest, known as ‘Sagarmatha’ in Nepali.

With a population of approximately 30 million, Nepal is the world’s 93rd largest country by land mass and the 41st most populous country.

Kathmandu is the nation’s capital and the country’s largest metropolis. Kathmandu Valley itself has estimated population of 5 million and has grown considerably from the days of its three ‘mini kingdoms’: Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur. Although the valley has sprawled in recent years, these three areas remain alive with a world-class artistic and architectural heritage.

The Nepalese have a multi-cultural heritage of Indian, Tibetan and North Burmese descent. Both Hindu and Buddhist religions are practiced across the country and in harmony with each other.
