    Nepal is blessed with 8 out of 10 highest peaks in the world and Nepali people are proud of it. I am going to present some photos and details of the ten highest peaks in this post.

  11. anything says:

    Nice of you to compile the info, but how you state which mountain lies in which country can be difficult. eg. Cho Oyu as you say lies between Tibet and Nepal but it’s main peak lies in Tibet (similar story with Everest but the main peak of Everest lies in Nepal). It makes sense to make these things clear so you don’t step on anyone’s toes?
