The world contains lots of countries one of them is Nepal. Nepal is a small and mountain country. It lies between China and India. It is nearly 500 miles long and 100 miles broad. The population of country is seventeen million. Most of the people live in the valleys and the plains.

Nepal is the land of the Himalayas. The major portions contain Himalayas. It contains some of the highest peaks, such as Mount Everest, Dhaulagiri, Makalu, Lhotse, Annapurna etc. To the south, there is a narrow plain called the Terai. The main rivers are Koshi,Gandaki, Karnali etc.

The climate is cold in the north and hot in the south .The Himalayan region gets very cold in winter. The Terai is very hot in summer. The monsoon blowing from the Bay of Bengal brings rain in summer. The rainfall is good in all parts of the country.

Agriculture is the main occupation of the people. It is carried on mainly in the Terai and the valleys. The Terai produces rice, jute, sugarcane, oil-seeds etc. The valleys produce maize, pulses, beans, fruits, etc. The high mountains are snow covered and hills are forested.

Country Nepal is poor in minerals but the lack of minerals has been compensated by hydro-electric power. Some big industries of Nepal are at Biratnagar, Janakpur, Birgunj, Bhairahawa etc.

Now a day, Nepal is non-religious state but people can enjoy freedom of religion. There are different religious but major are the Hindus and the Buddhists. Some people are Muslims, Christians, Sikhs and Jains also.

The people of the country are divided into various classes and sub-classes. They speak different languages, wear different kinds of clothes and eat different varieties of food. The people living near the northern border are Mongolian stock while those near the southern border are of Aryan Origin. The rest of the people are the Gorkhalis and the Newars. The different religious and racial classes live in peace and harmony and are proud to belong to the Nepali nation.

A few years ago, Nepal was a backward country. It was ruled by the Rana family. In 1950, democracy was introduced in the country. In 1960, the party system of democracy was replaced by the Panchayat System. Now a day it is democratic government. Hope it will work for the good of the people.
