Nepal is a land locked country in the South Asia and it shares its borders with India and China. The capital of Nepal is Kathmandu and it is also the largest city in Nepal. Nepal is the land where the highest mountain peak in the world, the Mt Everest lies and it is also the birth place of the founder of Buddhism, Gautama Buddha. It is the only Hindu country in the world. There is a wide variation in the height of the terrain through out the country. This has influenced the ecosystems and we can see a wide variety of flora and fauna in Nepal. Being a mountainous country Nepal offers provisions for adventure tourism like trekking and also there are a lot of places with historical importance.

The whole topography of Nepal can be divided into three regions based on the height from the sea level, the Himalayan region, the hill region and the Terai region. In Himalayan region places that attract tourists include Annapurna region, Everest region and Langtang. Annapurna region lies to the north of the town of Pokhra.

The hilly region is locally called as the pahadi bheg and it lies between the southern plains and the northern Himalayan range. More than 57%of the population of Nepal resides in this hilly region. The main places of attraction are Kathmandu valley, Pokhra, Tansen, Gorkha. Kathmandu is the capital city and showcases the ethnic culture, tradition and art of the country.
