Nepal is a landlocked nation in Southern Asia, between the Tibet self-governing locale of China and India. It contains 8 of the world's 10 most noteworthy pinnacles, including Mount Everest - the world's tallest - on the outskirt with Tibet, and Lumbini, the origination of Gautama Buddha, the organizer of Buddhism. Guests to Nepal for the most part partner the country with snow-topped mountain crests. While there are more than 90 pinnacles that lie above 7000m (22,966 ft), roughly 33% of the nation is low-lying and subtropical. The country's height ascends from under 100 meters (328 ft) rise in the tropical Terai (the northern edge of the Gangetic Plain) to Sagarmāthā (Mount Everest) - the world's most astounding mountain at 8,848m (29,029 ft).
