Nepal

Introducing Nepal:
The Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal is situated along the southern slopes of the Himalayan mountain range. It is situated between the 26012' and 30027' latitude lines and the 800 4' and 880 12' longitude lines, between India and Tibet (the Peoples Republic of China). Spanning an area of 147,181 esq. it extends roughly 900 km east to west and 150-200 km from north to south. Topographically the country varies from the world's deepest gorge 'Kali-Gandaki' to Mount Everest, the highest point on Earth. Nepal contains some of the most rugged and inaccessible mountainous terrain in the world; approximately 75 percent of the country is home to the Himalayas mountain range. The North-East part of the country is crowned by 8 of the world's 10 highest mountains. The Terai belt, along the southern border, is Nepal's only area of flat, low land. Nepal's landscape compresses lush tropical and arctic tundra into an amazingly small space. The country can be roughly divided into 3 geographical regions, each with a distinctive natural and cultural flare. The local environment, people, economy, customs and culture vary widely throughout Nepal. The country has rich bio-diversity, fascinating flora and fauna, incredible rivers that meander from the heart of the Himalayas, challenging river rafters.

Nepal's fascinating culture is represented by its temples, festivals, and the traditional lifestyle of its people.

The population of 23 million, comprising 61 ethnic and racial groups and speaking as many as 70 dialects, coexist in this small country. Furthermore, two of the world's great religions Hinduism and Buddhism intermingle harmoniously.

The wide climate variation of Nepal fosters an incredible variety ecosystem: steamy jungles, terraced valleys, forested hills, frozen peaks and barren deserts. Nepal is also renowned for an unparalleled diversity of flora and fauna. Tigers and rhinos roam in lush tropical jungles in the south, while further north snow leopards prowl on barren mountain slopes.

Moreover, Nepal is a bird watcher's paradise as home to more then 862 species of different bird species, an astounding variety given the small size of Nepal. The big game mammals of Nepal are famous throughout the world for their gameness, strength, agility and beauty.

Additionally, Nepal is one of the last refuges for many endangered animals, which include the Royal Bengal tiger, Asiatic Gaur Asiatic elephant, swamp deer, snow leopards, wild buffalo, black-buck Indian rhinoceros, musk deer, gangetic dolphins, Ghariyal crocodiles, and Indian rock pythons. These treasures have only recently become accessible to the world. Once isolated by suspicious rulers, Nepal only opened its borders to the outside world in 1951. Prior to this, barely 200 westerners had ever visited the country.Today over 400,000 tourists come to Nepal each year to explore its natural beauty and memorable culture.
