    Nepal (Nepali: नेपाल), ), officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, also Republic of Nepal, is a landlocked country in South Asia. It is bordered by China to the north and by India to the south, east and west. The Himalaya mountain range runs across Nepal's northern and western parts, and eight of the world's ten highest mountains, including the highest, Mount Everest, are within its territory.

    The modern state was formed with the Unification of Nepal by Prithvi Narayan Shah on December 21, 1768. Prior to 2006, Nepal was a kingdom. It was also the only modern nation with Hinduism as its official religion.From 1996 until 2006, Nepal suffered from a Civil War between government forces and guerrillas of the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist).

    On December 28, 2007, the Interim Parliament passed a bill and declared Nepal to be a Federal Democratic Republic. The official language is Nepali, but there are 10 recognized regional languages and

    another 100 different indigenous languages. The capital Kathmandu (sometimes spelled as Katmandu) is the largest city in the country.

    According to one legend, the country's name comes from a tie to agriculture--"Ne" means wool in the Tibetan language and "pal" means house or "godown" (aka a warehouse for storing things).

    Nepal is of roughly trapezoidal shape--500 miles long and 125 miles wide, with an area of 56,827 square miles. You may have heard the word "sherpa" in regards to Nepal. These are the guides for anyone adventurous enough to attempt climbing the the highest and most challenging mountains in the world, including Mount Everest. Technically, the south-east ridge on the Nepali side of the mountain is easier to climb; so, most climbers prefer to trek to Everest through Nepal.

    History of Nepal

    Modern Nepal was created in the latter half of the 18th century when Prithvi Narayan Shah, the ruler of the small principality of Gorkha, formed a unified country from a number of independent hill states. The country was frequently called the Gorkha Kingdom, the source of the term "Gurkha" used for Nepali soldiers.
