Officially known as the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, it is located in South Asia and is the 93rd largest country in the world by land mass. Sandwiched between India and China, Nepal is well known for retaining its very own culture and traditions, which are just two reasons why so many tourists flock to the country each year.
Nepal is perhaps most well known for housing eight of the world’s ten tallest mountains, including the highest point on the Earth: Mount Everest. Aviation success is well established in Nepal with a total of 47 airports scattered throughout the country but only 11 of them have paved runways.
With a population of 26.5 million, the Nepalese commonly speak Nepali, Maithili, Bjojpuri and Tharu while the country is also home to four types of sign languages.
The famous Lord Shiva temple is also found here and a large majority of Nepalese follow Hinduism as their religion. Shiva is regarded as the deity of the country.
