Nepal is a landlocked country bordering China in the north and India in the south and home to just over 26 million people. For most Nepalese people the way of life is simple and basic. With terrains ranging from large fertile plains too small foothills in the Pahad region but most noticeably it is home to the Himalayan mountain range which hosts 8 peaks over 8000m including mount Everest. With a vast array of wildlife, plant life, and also 8 national parks to choose from you will not run out of things to see and do whilst in this amazing country.
More than one third of its population live at least 2 hours walk from the nearest all season road, this meaning access to schools, health care clinics and markets is a constant challenge. Living off the land and managing to deal with constantly changing environments is an essential of everyday life.
The education system in Nepal has gradually improved over the years with the overall literacy rate (for population age 5 years and above) increased from 54.1% in 2001 to 65.9% in 2011 however there is still a lot of work to be done. Many children don’t even have access to a school and if they do it is sometimes a 2 hour walk to and from school every day.
Kathmandu, the capital city, has a population of 1.5 million people and close to 3 million when including the urban areas and surrounding towns.
