Nepal, situated in the heart of the Himalayas, is a landlocked country bound by China on the north and India on the other three sides. Kathmandu is the capital and largest city of this multiethnic nation. Dominated mostly by Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist culture, Nepal currently is a secular nation with parliamentary republican government.
The southern reaches of the country are the plain land of Terai. As you go towards the north, the Himalayas rises higher and higher, and the northern reaches of the country has eight out of ten of the world's tallest peaks. Due to its demography, most of Nepal has a pleasant sub-tropical climate with five distinct seasons: summer, monsoon, autumn, winter and spring. The higher altitudes of the Himalayas has cold sub-alpine mountain climate.
