  About Nepal

The “Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal” is a land locked mountainous country in between China in the north and India on the other sides. There are about 30 million people with over 70 spoken languages and 40 ethnic groups. It is rich in bio-diversity, culture and tradition. Traditionally, it is the land of Meditation “Tapo Bhumi” & Birth Place of Gautama Buddha. Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal, is known as the “Home of Gods and Goddesses”. Further, Nepal is considered to be the “Land of Yeti”. There are eight cultural and two natural world heritage sites.

Nepal, situated in the centre- Himalayas, is a country having both physiographic and climatic contrast compared to its small area of 1, 47,181 sq km. Mt Everest, the highest peak in the world, including eight of the 14 highest peaks (above 8,000 m) lies in Nepal. It has been divided into five physiographic zones namely- High Himalaya ( above 4,000 M), High Mountain (1,000 – 4,000 M), Middle Mountain (200-3,000 M) Siwalik (120- 2,000 M) and the Terai (100-300 M). These zones separate and confine various areas that form the main settlement zones.
