Nepal

My country Nepal

Nepal is a very beautiful country. It is also a landlocked country. China lies in the east side of the country. Likewise, India in west, north and south. It lies in the northern hemisphere. Our country has three geographical zones. They are Himalayan, Mountainous and Terai. Here, we have monsoon climate. It is very cold and dry during winter. And hot, stormy and rainy in summer. Furthermore, it is rich in natural beauty and resources. Here are long and wide rivers. Such as Koshi, Gandaki, Karnali, etc. Moreover, here are large lakes also. Like Rupa, Begnas, Rara, etc. Likewise, we have green valleys, lovely water falls, etc. Similarly, it is rich in religious and historical heritages. Lumbini,  Janakpur, Kathmandu are the famous examples.

Nepal has highly diverse and rich geography, culture, and religions. The mountainous north has many mountains. It includes eight of the world’s ten highest mountains. This also includes the highest  mountain Sagarmatha. It is known as Mount Everest in English. The fertile and humid south is heavily urbanized. It contains over 240 peaks. They are more than 20,000 ft. (6,096 m) above sea level.

People of many castes and religions live here. About hundred languages are spoken  here. Our popular foods are dal bhat, dhindo, gundurk etc. Similarly, Dashain, Tihar, Lhosar, Id etc. They are the most popular festivals. We celebrate these festivals very happily. Most  of the people are farmers. They grow rice, corn, wheat, millet, potato etc. Some people in the cities are businessmen also.  Likewise, some have industries. Therefore, people living here are very laborious.

Nepal is rich in natural resources. So, tourists love to visit our country. They can see endangered birds and animals here. Also, they can enjoy natural beauty. So, tourism is our potential industry.

Nepal is small but rich in natural resources. Although it is poor by economic condition. Nepal is developing country. To develop soon,  we have to aware all the citizen. We must provide education equally. To both men as well as women. Government should bring advance program. This may help citizen in development process. And, provide different facilities to citizen. And it’ll give benefit to citizen. Finally, it’ll help the  government also.

Nepal is a beautiful country. So, we have to publish it all over the world. And it’ll help to attract tourist. In this way, we can control our economic condition. Therefore, we can achieve success by developing our strengths.

  • The Heritage
  • If the beauty of nature were the measure of economic wealth, Nepal would be the richest country on earth.
  • Here several of the world's ecological zones meet, creating a landscape of extremes.
  • The land rises from subtropical forests at near sea level to the highest mountains on earth, the Himalayan, and nourishes an immense variety of flora and fauna.,
  • For centuries, Nepal's rugged mountain terrain isolated the land, preserving hundreds of species of animals and plants that have disappeared elsewhere on the globe.
  • During the past few decades they have begun to disappear from Nepal as well.
  • The Challenge
  • Though rich in Nature, Nepal is economically one of the poorest and least developed countries in the world.
  • Its resources sometimes fail to provide even the most basic necessities of life for its people- and their needs place a heavy burden on the environment.
  • Unless those needs are met, the natural heritage of Nepal may vanish from the earth, never to return.
  • The Future
  • The goal of The National Trust for Nature Conservation is to preserve the natural heritage and in so doing, to achieve a high quality of human life.
  • The Trust works closely with many international organizations.
  • The problems of conservation are complex, the solutions seldom obvious.
  • But for the sake of future generations, the problems must be solved.
