A bit about Nepal
Nepal is an independent country located in between Tibet and India, nestled between the mountain wall of the Himalayas and the low northern plains of India. At less than 150,000 square kilometres, Nepal isn’t a big country, but it packs quite a punch in terms of landscapes and culture.
Half of Nepal’s 28 million people live in the lowlands and around Kathmandu, the bustling capital city famed for its Buddhist temple-lined medieval city squares and colourful markets. The foothills and the high peaks and valleys of the Himalayas are home to the rest of Nepal’s population, although it’s hard to tell sometimes where all the people are in this region – it’s so quiet and untouched!
