Nepal is divided into three parts Terai, Hill, and mountain regions. Here, the first language is Nepal (Devanagari script) and one hundred twenty-three languages. The official language of Nepal is called Nepali.

Nepal, formally the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is landlocked in South Asia. It is generally located in the Himalayas; however additionally consists of components of the Indo-Gangetic Plain, bordering Tibet of China to the north, and India in the south, east, and west, while it is narrowly separated from Bangladesh through the Siliguri Corridor, and from Bhutan by way of the Indian kingdom of Sikkim. Nepal has various geography, fertile plains, subalpine forested hills, and eight of the world’s ten tallest mountains, including Mount Everest, the very best factor on Earth. Nepal is a multi-ethnic, multi-lingual, multi-religious, and multi-cultural state, with Nepali as the legitimate language. Kathmandu is the nation’s capital and the biggest city.

Nepal’s share of traffic to South Asia is about 6%, and they spend a lot much less on average, with Nepal sharing 1.7% of the earnings. Premier locations encompass Pokhara, the Annapurna trekking circuit, and the 4 UNESCO world heritage sites—Lumbini, Sagarmatha National Park (home to Mount Everest), seven places in the Kathmandu Valley mutually listed as one, and Chitwan National Park.
