Place of the Year 2015 nominee spotlight: Nepal [quiz]

As voting for the Place of the Year 2015 continues, we would like to take a moment to highlight one of the shortlist nominees. Nepal made global headlines after a devatating earthquake ripped through the country back in April until a second earthquake of similar magnitude hit in June. Its death toll for the two events hit nearly ten thousand, leaving thousands more injured and uprooted from their homes.

Beyond earthquakes, Nepal is a highly diverse country, and there are few others that can match its wondrous flora, fauna, and landscapes. So how much do you know about Nepal? Find out in this quiz, with information pulled from Atlas of the World: Twenty-Second Edition.


Make sure to cast your vote on the shortlist for Place of the Year 2015 by 30 November.
