Nepal

Olympic HistoryEven though Nepal has attended eleven Olympic games, it still hasn’t won any medals. Since the Olympics are quite expensive, they can’t afford to send many athletes to the games. In the 1924 Winter Olympics, Tejbir Bura won a gold medal in mixed alpinism for his role member of the 1922 Everest Expedition, but it was later given to a mixed team once others started to join. Now the Olympic committee does not officially recognize the award.

AttractionsNepal is mostly known for what lies on its border, which is the world’s highest mountain peak, Mount Everest. It is 29,029 feet tall! Another famous tourism spot is in Lumbini, because the well-known Guatam Buddha was born there. Traveling from far distances, Buddhists come from everywhere to see where he once lived. UNESCO has even stated it as a World Heritage Site.

The official language is Nepal and the official religion is Hinduism. Sadly, it’s has one of the poorest economies in the world, and it gets most of its income through its agriculture.

FoodDal-Bhat-Tarkari, which is what they call their main course of meal, is a perfect combination of all the vitamins and nutrients they need. They are huge fans of rice, but they also eat vegetables, fruit, soup, salad, and fried meat. Using spices in their meals is a common thing to do in Nepal.

SocietyMost of Nepal’s population works in the agriculture department, but some work in the tourism industry or trading goods. There are many ethnic groups and all of them speak a different language, dress differently, and practice their own religious beliefs. In some areas, public affection is banned, and their parents usually arrange marriage. Nepal is a very traditional country, but they are starting to open up to new ideas.
