MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Nepal is famous for its high mountains and for its devastating earthquake that shook the nation in 2015. Recovery from the earthquake has been hampered by political infighting which has prevented the release of funds that were pledged. An extremely poor country, Nepal’s economy relies on international aid and tourism which has suffered tremendously because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Human trafficking and corruption remain major problems. Nepal and India are the world’s only Hindu majority nations. Despite this, Nepal is officially a secular nation and freedom of religion was enacted in 2006, but persecution has intensified.
