 Places to Visit in Nepal

 

Welcome to Nepal, a Kingdom of high Himalayan mountains and deep valleys, lush jungles exotic wildlife, people of diverse origin and their own specific cultures. No wonder Nepal is known through so many names.

The land of Everest, the highest mountain in the world, the birthplace of Lord Buddha,┬áthe only Hindu Kingdom in the world and so on. But what attracts so many to Nepal is it’s beauty and the simplicity of its people.

Roughly rectangular in shape, the Kingdom of Nepal is a landlocked country that is situated between China in the north and India in the east, west and south. The land extends roughly 885 km east to west and 193 km north to south.

 

Altitude ranges from near sea level to 8,848 meters above it – the summit of Mt. Everest, the highest peak of the planet. This wild variation fosters an incredible variety of ecosystems: steamy jungles and terraced valleys, forested hills, frozen peaks and high altitude deserts.
Tropical flowers frame views of not-so-distant snow peaks,

tigers and rhinos wander around lush jungles while snow leopards patrol barren mountain slopes.


Nepal’s topography can be divided into three different geographic regions based on the rising elevation from the sea level. Each region has its own diverse environment, people and culture and their own special identity.
