NEPAL

Nepal is a land-locked sovereign kingdom surrounded by Tibet in the north and by India to the south, west and east. It covers an area of 151,005 square km and measures approximately 800km in length and 250km in width.

Officially Nepal is a Hindu Kingdom, but in practice Hinduism and Buddhism are mingled into a complex blend which is often impossible to separate. Small groups of Muslims and Christians are also found among the population.

Nepal is one of the very few countries which offers many varieties of adventure tourism activities. Out of 14 highest peaks in the world, eight of them are located in Nepal namely Mt. Everest 8,848m, Kanchanjunga 8,598m, Cho Oyu 8,153m, Lhotse 8,501m, Makalu 8,475m, Manaslu 8,162m, Dhaulagiri 8,167m, Annapurna I 8,091m respectively. Besides these eight highest peaks of the world, there are other one thousand three hundred and ten mountain peaks in Nepal which are called "trekking peaks". Thus Nepal is truly a paradise for trekking and mountaineering enthusiasts.
