The History and geography of Nepal

Nepal, the great historic place and famous tourist place in the world. Nepal is situated in the Arm of Himalayas. The area of Nepal is 147181 sq.km. The capital of Nepal is Kathmandu. Previously Nepal is divided into 3 regions, 5 development regions, 14 zones, 75 districts, 58 municipality and 3915 villages. But Now, Nepal is divided in to 7 states with 77 districts.

The Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal is situated along the southern slopes of the Himalayas, bordering India in the south-east and in the west, and the autonomous region of Tibet in china in north. This small country of 147,181 sq. km. extends roughly 885 km miles from east to west and 145 to 193 km from north to south. More than 75 percent of the total land mass is occupied by mountains extending from east to west across the country. Topographically, the Kingdom of Nepal can be divided into five zones.

The 3 regions are:-

  • Mountains region
  • Hilly region
  • Terai region

1. The Terai

The flatland nearby the Indian border forms the extension of the Genetic plain and varies in width form less than sixteen to more than twenty miles. In Terai zone altitude varies only form sea level to a few hundred feet. About three decades ago, this whole belt of the Terai consisted of vast, impenetrable tropical forest, known as "char kose jhari" (literally "a continuous stretch of the belt of four mile forest along the country"). The entire Terai belt was originally a main source of timber: at present , most of verdant Terai forest have disappeared and their place is taken by fertile agricultural land through there are still a few isolated pockets of Terai forest which are now struggling hard for their existence against tremendous human pressure. Still vast segment of Terai consists mainly of deciduous to evergreen broad leaf species and is the home of many tropical faunal and floral species. The Terai region harbors spectacular wildlife such as Tiger, leopard, bear, bison, wild buffalo, and many varieties of dear and antelope. Similarly, unique fresh water river wildlife such as the genetic dolphin, Gharial crocodile, mugger crocodile and many species of game fish such as mahseer abound in the rivers and lakes of the Terai. Well over 800 species of bird life ranging from small brown birds to the most colorful pheasant, live and breed in the thickets of tropical jungle.

2. The Inner Terai

The zone consists of many basins and valleys surrounded by the lower churia hills in the south and the rugged Mahabharata range in the north. The landscape lies between 2,000 to 3,000 feet altitude. The flora and fauna is as rich as the Terai zone.

3. The Midland

The mountain zone, which is a labyrinth network of the Mahabharata mountain range, covers about fifty miles in width with an altitude varying from four thousand to fourteen thousand feet on the foot-hills. Generally the tidges and spurs of this middle land mountain area present steep slopes towards the south and relatively well drained gentle slopes in the north. Within midland zone, some great valleys such as Kathmandu and Pokhara are flat agricultural croplands. The midland mountain region is a meeting place of sub-tropical and mountain forest: so is the wildlife distribution. The broad leaf species shore Robusta or "Sal" forest is replaced by lower coniferous forest in the lower hills, extending to a distribution of coniferous trees, maple and rhododendron forest. Amongst the mammalian wildlife typical species such as tiger, rhino, bison, wild buffalo, etc. are replaced by leopard, Himalayan black, sorrow, Himalayan Thar, red panda, etc.

4. The Great Himalayan Highlands

The extreme northern region, the great Himalayan highlands: display its massive fangs from the east to the far west of the country. Within Nepalese frontiers are found thirteen of the world's highest peaks, including Sagarmatha (Mount Everest). Except for scattered human settlements in high mountain valleys, most of the glaciated valleys in this area are barren, above 14,000 feet. In the lower Himalayan foothills between 8,000 and 14,000 feet are to be found many indicator alpine types of vegetation. The Vegetation in this region varies greatly because of Micro-climate factors, exposure, and rainfall and wind velocity.

5 Trans-Himalayan zones

The trans- Himalayan zone is often rain-shadowed, since the monsoons cannot traverse the Himalayas. Hence, climatically, a dry alpine barren land has developed. This zone consists of far-flung areas such as Mustang, Manang, and Dolpa, most of which are still closed to foreigners. These highlands are very close culturally and ecologically Tibetan plateau; however, the vast thick meadows, bushes and alpine scrub harbor the varied beautiful wild flowers, and in these vast stretches live magnificent mammals such as snow leopard, blue sheep, and Thar. Many high Himalayan species such as Tibetan sheep, Tibetan stag, Tibetan gazelle, Tibetan antelope, as well as wild yak are much heard of, but are yet to have their occurrences and distributions confirmed scientifically.

Nepal has rich flora and fauna created to many different zoo-geographical and climatic regions. Especially in the Terai, every acre of land was formerly covered by dense forest. It was difficult for sunlight to filter through the dense top canopy of the major forest systems "Shorea" and "Terminalia" to the thick ground over. Once, the stretch of 4 miles forest(char kose jhadi) was impenetrable, not only because of a dense growth of vegetation and of the danger of encountering ferocious wildlife, but also because the door to this green world was shut tight by nature itself, guarded by mosquitoes, which acted as a vector of malaria.

Rivers and ponds of Nepal

Nepal is the gift of Nature, land of fighters, the one and only free kingdom in World. Nepal is rich in culture heritage, rich in Natural resources and rich in water. Nepal is second richest country in water, Brazil is in No.1 position. In Nepal there are more than 6 thousands rivers and ponds. Among them thousand rivers are more than 11km long. More than 100 rivers are long than 160 km. The total length of all rivers is 45,000 km and the storage capacity of rivers is more than 2 Million two thousand million cubic mtr. Among them big three rivers (Oshkosh, Gandaki, Karnali) Storage capacity is one million forty eight thousand cubic mtr. In fact the 74% of total storage. If you see with electricity and irrigation eyes than we can say it white gold. The total capacity of electricity production is more than 83, ooo mega watt. The Rivers are divided into 3 parts they are

  • First Class
  • Second Class
  • Third Class

First class rivers: - First Class Rivers are flowing from Himalayas and they are continuing flowing. They never dry up. These kings of rivers are used for electricity production and irrigation purpose. The first class of rivers is KOSHI, GANDAKI and KARNALI. In Brief they are given below.

d. Narayanghat -Butwal part→Belayat

e. Butwal-KohalpurNÜIndia

Mahendra rajmarg does not touch to Parsa district.

2. Tribhuvan Rajpath path

This Highway is the oldest Highway of Nepal. It was built on 1956 A.D. (2013B.S.) it is 191 K.M. long. It begins from Raxaul (India) and goes via Hetauda-Bhaise-Sim bhanjyang- to Kathmandu. Sim bhanjyang is the highest point of this highway. This is also known as "Bypass road". Now days it is being used when Prithvi rajmarg is closed due to Natural disaster.

Wild life in Nepal

Thought Nepal is a relatively small country, the population of wildlife it harbors is fantastically, large. With only 0.1% of the world’s total area, Nepal is home to over 4% of this planets mammal and 8% of its bird species including many which are globally endangered. To date, 181 mammal, 43 amphibian, 100 reptile, 185 fish, 844 bird, and 635 butterfly and moth species have been documented in Nepal. The spine babbler and “Janakpur” have yet to be found anywhere else in the world. Similarly, the atlas moth and a crack species recorded here are by far the largest of all their counterparts ever to be found.

Diversity in landforms breeds diversity in life, and Nepal is rich in both. Past His Majesty’s Government of Nepal had established within its territory 14 protected zones in corpora-ting 14% of its total surface area. These include the royal Chitwan national park, The Royal Bardiya National park, The Annapurna conservation area, and the Sagarmatha shey phoksundo, and langtang National park. From tropical creature like the hyena, to alpine animals like the snow leopard, beasts of all shapes and sizes have found this land suitable to their living. The one-horned Rhinoceros is one of most adamant survivors of this planet. The great one horned rhinoceros found in Nepal weighs, around 2100 kg. Looking and can reach 180cm. at the shoulders when fully grown. It has poor eyesight but its sense of smell and hearing are formidable.

Up to until the 60s, the number of rhinos in Nepal was only between 80 and 100. Now with the establishment of the protected areas, it has risen to more than 450. The royal Bengal Tiger often termed as the “king of the Jungle”, the tiger is one of the world’s most magnificent animals. The Royal Chitwan National park is the place which harbors most of Nepal’s 250 tigers. Other protected areas where they can be sighted are Royal Suklaphanta wildlife reserve, Royal Bardiya National park and Parsa wildlife reserve. The snow leopard has its dwelling in the snow covered Himalaya. In Nepal, their habitat extends for 36640 sq. km in the high altitudes among rocks and cliffs above the tree line more than 3,500 m above the sea-level. The Gangetic dolphin, so named for their habitation in the Gangetic waters, is a recent discovery in Nepal. The female species are larger than the males and they can reach up to 260 cm in length. They are non-gregarious by nature. The Gangetic dolphins abound mostly in the Koshi, Narayani, Gandaki and Karnali rivers.

The gharial crocodile is one of the most prominent reptile varieties so far found in Nepal. In Nepal, they abound mostly in the Royal Chitwan National park. In this they can even observe reproduction of gharials in breeding farm. The wild boar is distinctive for its sharp tusks, sparse coat and flute crest or mane of black bristle reaching from the nape down the black. A full grown male stands 90 cm and its weight may well exceed 230 kg.

These tusked animals abound mostly in the Royal Chitwan National Park, Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve, Royal Bardiya National park and Parsa wild life reserve.

National Parks and wildlife Reserves in Nepal

About 225 species of mammals occur in Nepal. Nepalese mammals are found in all habitat types, from snowy mountain of Himalaya to hot steaming forest of Terai plain and show variety of adaptation e.g. flying, digging, tree living, aquatic etc. Some species breeding fast have outnumbered their carrying capacity and have become pest and put great strain to agroforestry. Some act as vector of human and livestock diseases. Hence control of their population becomes a present necessity. Many other species, however verging extinction due to loss of habitat and become so rare that they exist no more if proper asylum in natural forest is not given. For providing better habitat and chance of multiplication Government of Nepal has set up National parks and wildlife reserve in a country wide basis to preserve mammals and other forms of life in Trans-Himalayan, Himalayan, alpine, tropical bio climate belts.

You know-This country is blessed by the nature by providing various rivers, streams and fountains. Nepal has ample sources of water, as a white gold. Nepal can be a great store of food-grains if well irrigated and high potential of hydroelectric energy. As Arabian countries are god gifted with sufficient Petroleum products, Nepal has sufficient water for hydroelectricity, which can be used for foreign money generation. Having dense forest, rare animals and more than 800 types of birds plus herbaria makes it naturally friendly in many ways. Nepal is one of the best tourism destinations in the world. Many of the tourists and the foreigners claim- 'Nepal is the most beautiful place in the world.' A Swiss geologist and scholar, Toni Hagen first came in 1950 as a member of the Swiss Mission for Development Aid. His first job was to conduct Nepal's first geological survey. He said about the natural beauty of Nepal-' It is a wonderful country. It is fact more wonderful than Switzerland if you take into account the Nepali people. The people here are open-minded.' 25 Nov.1992- Weekly newspaper- The Independent'

Although,Nepal is a landlocked country of eternal beauty and attraction. It is a scenic paradise and the home of the world’s highest mountains, historic cities and the forested plains where you can find the lordly tigers and the great one- horned rhinoceros. Nepal is the youngest republic in the world, a land of colorful cultures, ancient history, charming people, picturesque scenery and some of the best walking on earth. It is globally known for Mount Everest, the highest mountain peak of the world.

Nepal is regarded as a mini-world. Physically, the structure of Nepal shows Himalayas having the highest peak in the world, Hills, and low-lands i.e. Tarai. Various types of castes & creeds settle there. The soil also differs from east to west. Having different climate we can produce different edible crops. Whatever crops are available in the nook & corner of the globe we can produce in this soil. The Himalayan region of north Nepal is the store of fresh water. The Himalayan area of Nepal ecologically is very rich in nature. There are almost 100 peaks in Nepal's Himalayas. More than one million visitors come Nepal for wildlife viewing, river rafting, mountain climbing- Mount Everest highest peaks 8000 meters, third highest peak Kanchenjunga as well as Gaurishankar, Annapurna, Lamlang etc.

Now, some leaders from India are showing antagonistic nature toward Nepal. We, Nepalese have to face the challenges bravely. We assume that we are tied with the cultural & religious bondage with India and we have cordial relation but we have to face the risk of saving our national integrity and sovereignty. Such an inclination of India may be harmful to India also. So, she should get rid of her own hegemonies role. Some Nepalese playing a villainous role to incorporate Indian design. Nepalese should be conscious against such conspiracies.

You know- the condition of Nepal is very bad. The Nation can't survive in the hands of foreign tools. Nepal cannot survive unless and until monarchy is reinstated. Monarchy is the lasting institution to fight against foreign interference. In the context of Nepal federalism and secularism are the components to risk the nation. It is high time to think to save the nation from steep precipice to fall it down. We, patriot-Nepalese whether we belong to any party, creed or castes we should be devoted to the national interest. So, we may be living into Nepal or abroad, we should be conscious to save the Nepalese natural & cultural nationalism.
