Nepal is one of the richest countries in the world in terms of bio-diversity due to its unique geographical position and altitudinal variation. The elevation of the country ranges from 60 meters above the sea level to the highest point on earth, Mt. Everest at 8,848 meters, all within a distance of 150 kilometers resulting into climatic conditions from Sub-tropical to Arctic.


Nepal--occupying only 0.1 percent of the total landmass of the earth – is home to:

  • 2% of all the flowering plants in the world;
  • 8% of the world’s population of birds (more than 848 species);
  • 4% of mammals on earth;
  • 11 of the world’s 15 families of butterflies (more than 500 species);
  • 600 indigenous plant families;
  • 319 species of exotic orchids.

Nepal- Visa & Permit

  • Nepal extends visas to almost all nations' citizens. Indian nationals do not require a visa to enter Nepal. The Royal Nepalese Embassies or Consulates abroad and the immigration offices at entry points provide a sixty days visa upon the presentation of a valid passport, two passport size photos, and a payment of the equivalent of US$30 for Single Entry Visa and US$80 for multiple entry visa. Children below 10 years are exempted from paying the Visa Fee.
  • Free Visa for Tourists
  • From 06th August 2003 His Majesty's Government of Nepal has brought the free visa policy into effect for Tourists from SAARC Countries (India, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Maldives) as well as China. Likewise the Government has also waived the visa fees for any tourist entering Nepal for a period of three days, free visa for any national for re-entry, who have stayed at least 15 days and more in the country in a visa year (January - December).
  • Tourist Visa Extension
  • A tourist visa can be extended up to 120 days from the Department of Immigration in Kathmandu and Pokhara on request. Then after additional 30 days can be extended from the Department of Immigration on reasonable ground, which ensures one's departure from the country within 150 days in one visa year.
  • Tourist Visa Extension fee and additional late fee are as follows
  1. Visa extension without re-entry facility for 30 days: US $ 40 in equivalent Nepalese currency.
