Nepal is a landlocked country bordered by China to the north, and India to the south and west. It has a population of 26 million and has a volatile political climate, especially in the Tarai region due to the exploitation of its people who are mostly laborers. This has led to political tension with many organized political struggles by the Communist Party of Nepal. Nepal’s culture is unique because it is rooted in Hinduism. The Nepalese do not eat beef because they consider the cow to be sacred. Half of the country’s population speaks Nepalese while the rest speak other native languages. The main religion is Hinduism which is practiced by 80% of the population. Tourism is also a core part of the nation’s economy, attracting many visitors and climbers to its spectacular mountainous landscapes that are a part of the Himalayan range, and of course, Mount Everest.
