Nepal, situated between the two most populous nations on Earth – China and India, is a very diverse country known for the high Himalayas, fertile plains, dense forests, deep gorges, raging rivers, and diverse cultures. As the elevation changes from 59m at Mukhiyapatti Musharniya to 8,848m at Mount Everest, the climate changes from tropical in the southern plains to the tundra in the high Himalayas- under perpetual snow cover.

This huge variation in altitude and climate within a span of 128 kilometers is the main reason for the diverse flora and fauna you can find in Nepal. The diversity in terrain and climate demanded the locals shape their traditions and cultures around it, giving rise to unique cultures and traditions, making Nepal one of the most diverse countries in the world.
