More information about the video content bellow: 1. The Nepali flag is the only nation with non-quadrilateral flag.

The Himalayas mountains is shared between five countries in descending order: Nepal, Bhutan, India, China and Pakistan. The mountainous north of Nepal has eight of the world’s ten tallest mountains, including the highest point on Earth, Mount Everest. The international border between China (Tibet Autonomous Region) and Nepal runs across Everest's precise summit point. 3. Nepal does not have an independent day because Nepal was never colonized. Nepal is also the oldest country in South Asia. 4. Nepal is the birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha. Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) was born in Kapilvastu, Lumbini which lies in Nepal. Lumbini is a sacred place for Buddhists. 5. The only living goddess in the world called Kumari can be found in Nepal. The literal meaning of Kumari is Virgin. In Nepal these kumari, or “living goddesses,” are pre-pubescent girls considered to be the earthly manifestations of divine female energy, incarnations of the goddess known as Taleju, the Nepalese name for Durga. Selected as children, they live in temples, are carried in chariots during festivals and are worshipped by thousands of Hindus and Buddhists. They retire upon puberty. 6.
