Why is Nepal a favourite destination for tourists?

Perched on the roof of the Himalayas, Nepal shares a snowy border with China and India. A landlocked country, it had been ruled by monarchs or a ruling family for most of its modern history in relative isolation, until it became a republic in May 2008. Here, the tallest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, soars above range after range of icy peaks. It's a land of yaks and yetis, stupas and Sherpas, and some of the best trekking on Earth.

Is it any wonder that Nepal is a hot favourite with tourists from all overtheworld?

The first civilizations in Nepal, which flourished around the 6th century BC, were confined to the fertile Kathmandu Valley where the present-day capital of the same name is located. It was in this region that Prince Siddhartha Gautama was born in 563 BC Gautama achieved enlightenment as Buddha, and gave riseto Buddhism. Most of the people in Nepal are farmers. Others herd sheep and yaks. However, today, tourism is the main industry.

Facts about Nepal

Area: total: 147 ,181 sq km land: 143 ,181 sq km water: 4 ,000 sq km
Background: In 1951 , the Nepalese monarch ended the century-old system of rule by hereditary premiers and instituted a cabinet system of government. Reforms in 1990 established a multiparty democracy within the framework of a constitutional monarchy. An insurgency led by Maoist extremists broke out in 1996. The ensuing nine-year civil war between insurgents and government forces witnessed the dissolution of the cabinet and parliament and assumption of absolute power by the king. Several weeks of mass protests in April 2006 were followed by several months of peace negotiations between the Maoists and government officials , and culminated in a November 2006 peace accord and the promulgation of an interim constitution. The newly formed interim parliament declared Nepal a democratic federal republic at its first meeting in May 2008 , the king vacated the throne in mid-June 2008 , and parliament elected the country's first president the following month.
