Nepal

Nepal is a landlocked country in South Asia, bordered by China to the north and India to the south, east and west. Historically, Nepal had many small kingdoms and the modern state was formed with the Unification of Nepal by Prithvi Narayan Shah on December 21, 1768. Prior to 2006, Nepal was a kingdom. Nepal is now a federal democratic republic. Its recent history has involved struggles for democratic government with periods of direct monarchic rule. The Himalaya mountain range runs across Nepal's northern and western parts, and eight of the world's ten highest mountains, including the highest, Mount Everest, are within its territory. Technically, the south-east ridge on the Nepali side of the mountain is easier to climb; so, most climbers prefer to trek to Everest through Nepal. The Annapurna circuit is another popular mountain trek, based from the city of Pokara in the south. Kathmandu is the capitol and transportation hub into the country. It has a diverse collection of temples, stupas, shops, restaurants and bars.
