Nepal Country

My country Nepal is located between longitude 80o4' and 88o12' and between latitude 26o22' and 30o27'. It borders the Peoples Republic of China in the north and India in the east, south and west. Nepal has a breadth east to west of 885 km, a mean width of 193 km and covers an area of 147,181 sq km. Topographically the Country is divided into three bands running the full breadth and comprising the Terai (southern plains), the Mid-Hills and the Mountains. The Mid-Hills and Mountains together represent 83% of the total area of Nepal. the hill areas are geologically very young and active, and are affected by a constant tectonic uplifting accompanied by down-cutting of the river systems. This action on the predominately soft and deeply weathered nature of the rock has produced extremely rugged topography with local differences in elevation varying from 500 meters to 3,500 meters and rising to 8,848 meters (Mount Everest) above mean sea level. The resulting steep, unstable and highly redouble slopes are divided into many gullies and small valleys and the provision and maintenance of even basic infrastructure in such extreme conditions is both difficult and costly. the Country is administered through five development regions: eastern, central, western, mid-western and far-western. These are further subdivided into 14 zones, 75 districts, 58 municipalities, and 3,914 Village Development Committees. Although the declared policy of Government is to decentralist development responsibility to the local level, this is proving difficult in practice due, in part, to the lack of local capability and hence, poor resource mobilization

Nepali Flag
The National Flag of Nepal is unique in that it is the only national flag in the world not rectangular in shape. This distinctive flag consists of two juxtaposed triangular figures with a crimson base and deep blue borders.
The upper part has a white emblem of the crescent moon with eight rays, while the lower one bears a twelve-rayed white emblem of the sun.

The Rhododendron Arboreum (Lali Gurans in Nepali) is the most famous and attractive amongst over 30 species of rhododendrons found in the hills of Nepal. The tallest of its trees attains heights of up to 15metres. The Lali Gurans, with its beautiful bell-shaped flowers, is widely distributed

Throughout the whole length of Nepal from 4,000 ft to 12,000 ft of the sea-level. Its blossoming heralds the advent of spring.

Nepal's national bird, the lophophorus (Danphe in Nepali) is one of the most beautiful birds found in the kingdom. Listed as an endangered species, this most exotic of all pheasants inhabits high elevations of the Himalayan range. In Hindu mythological accounts, it is described as a guide to Lord Mahadev (Lord Shiva), who dwelled in the Himalayas.
