COUNTRY INFORMATION Located between India and China, and occupying an area of 141,000 sq km, Nepal extends from 80015' - 88010' south-east longitudes to 26020' - 30010' north-west latitudes for 800 km, mainly along the south slope of the central Himalayas. While the northern part includes major ecological zones of High Himal, High Mountains, Middle Hills and Siwaliks, the southern part is the Tarai ecological zone, an extension of the gangetic plain. The altitude ranges from less than 100 m in the southern plain to more than 8000 m in the northern Himalayas. Due to sharp latitudinal differences and climatic conditions (sub-tropical to alpine), distribution of forests, farming systems and living style of the people vary greatly.
