NEPAL COUNTRY PROFILE
Landlocked in the Himalaya mountain range between India and China, Nepal remains one of the world’s poorest nations. Following a decade-long insurgency that ended in 2006 and earthquakes that killed more than 9,000 people and destroyed more than 755,000 homes in 2015, Nepal continues to face development challenges.
