The country name ‘Nepal’ is believed to have been derived from the Sanskrit word nipalaya, which means ‘at the foot of the Himalaya Mountains’. Also the word Nepal is believed to be related to Tibetan word niyampal, which means ‘Holy Land’. And a much broader meaning of Nepal can be as a country of natural beauty, home of legendary Gorkhas, the only country having the highest land on earth – Mt. Everest, called Sagarmatha in Nepali. It contains more than 240 peaks over 20,000 ft (6,096 m) above sea level. It is also known as a home of peace loving Lord Buddha, and Hindu Goddess, Sita.
