An introduction to Nepal

It is known as the abode of the gods. For many years, Nepal was an unknown secret country until the 1950s when it was faced with making a leap from the 11th century to modern times.

Nepal was first visited by mountaineers and trekkers and later it became an escape for hippies. In 1989, restrictions barring several areas to tourists were lifted and the number of visitors steadily increased.

The Nepalese Government has set aside more than 35% of the country as nature reserves. There are currently 9 National Parks and 3 wildlife sanctuaries in the mountainous areas including in the tropical lowlands.

The Terai plains in the south form the richest natural home of plants and animals in Nepal. 5 protected areas are situated in this region and various species of wildlife which include the rare Royal Bengal tiger and leopard can be seen.
