Destination Guide of Nepal

Nepal, officially Kingdom of Nepal, constitutional monarchy in southern Asia, bounded on the north by the Tibetan Autonomous Region in China and on the east, south and west by India. The area of Nepal is 147,181 sq km (54,362 sq mt). Nepal occupies one of the most mountainous parts of the world, a characteristic that has contributed to its isolation. Because of its landlocked position, however, Nepal must maintain friendly relations with the neighboring nations of China and India. Since the 1970s the country has attracted growing numbers of tourists as well as skilled mountain climbers.
