This landlocked country of valleys and peaks has attracted an astounding number of visitors for decades.

The country extends from the Himalayan range in the North to the Indo-Gangetic lowlands in South. Mt. Everest, the highest point of the Himalayas is in Nepal and is a major attraction for serious mountaineers and tourists alike.

The landscape offers a kaleidoscope of green paddy terraces, dense forests, marshy grasslands and mighty rivers. Nepal is right there on that list of '50-placesto-visit-before-I-die'.
