Flooding in Nepal 2020 - Gandaki (Narayani River) and Kathmandu
- 🎬 Video
- ℹ️ Description
The Republic of Nepal is a state in the Himalayas in South Asia. The capital is the city of Kathmandu. Nepal is located between the two most populous countries in the world - China and India.
More than 40% of Nepal's territory is located at an altitude of over 3000 m, so Nepal is the highest mountainous country in the world.
Like the rest of the region, Nepal was hit hard by floods in 2020. Seasonal monsoon rains led to the overflow of the largest rivers and, as a result, to the flooding of vast territories. Natural disasters destroyed roads, bridges and flooded agricultural land.
