Nepal is known for its natural beauty and brilliance that it exhibits and therefore is also considered as the abode of the gods.It can be called the naturally gifted land by the gracious creations of nature. For many years a secret has been lying here undisclosed, unknown country, it was, in the 1950s, faced with making a leap from the 11th century to modern times. This is a transition that has taken place from the very traditional and cultural Nepal to the modern and developing country that now competes with the worlds fastest growing countries in their own stands.Visited first by mountaineers and trekkers as it has a lot of mountains to be trekked and climbed, it later became the haunt of hippies.

Business and Economy
Though the countries in the world are trying to develop and come up in their potential fields that they are strong in.However Nepal is among the poorest and least developed countries in the world with 42% of its population living below the poverty line. Agriculture like most countries is the mainstay of the economy, providing a livelihood for over 80% of the population and accounting for 40% of GDP.This is the only source that helps this country to generate good amount of revenue and also provide a great amount of livlihood to most of the citizens present. Industrial activity mainly involves the processing of agricultural produce including jute, sugarcane, tobacco, and grain as this is the main form of revenue and produce that is procured. Security concerns in the wake of the Maoist conflict and the 11 September 2001 terrorist attacks in the US have led to a decrease in tourism, a key source of foreign exchange, although that is not the case as of now and things are looking bright in the tourism sector. Nepal has considerable scope for exploiting its potential in hydropower and tourism, areas of recent foreign investment interest. Foreign direct investments are a possibilty if the country shows up its potential in the required fields.
