About the Nepal:

Nepal, formerly known as the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a landlocked South Asian country. The name “Nepal” is first recorded in texts from the Vedic period of the Indian subcontinent, the era in ancient Nepal when Hinduism was founded, the predominant religion of the country. It is mainly situated in the Himalayas, but also includes parts of the Indo-Gangetic Plain, bordering the Tibet Autonomous Region of China to the north, and India in the south, east, and west, while it is narrowly separated from Bangladesh by the Siliguri Corridor, and from Bhutan by the Indian state of Sikkim.

Nepal’s geography is diversified, with fertile plains, subalpine wooded hills, and eight of the world’s ten largest mountains, including Mount Everest, the highest point on the planet. Nepal is a multi-ethnic, multi-lingual, multi-religious, and multi-cultural country, with Nepali serving as the official language. Kathmandu is the nation’s capital and the largest city.
