The world is becoming increasingly remote, with Nepal now the world’s second-least-remote country after Vietnam, with the Himalayan plateau being the least-remote of the nine major Himalayan mountain ranges.
The Himalayan foothills in Nepal are currently home to more than 500 million people and comprise the country’s third-largest mountain range after the high plateau of Ladakh and the Lhotse plateau.
The Nepal government has long considered the Himalayas the “most remote” of the world, saying the plateau was home to only 1,500 people in the peak year.
However, the latest figures released by the government show that the plateau now hosts almost 6,000 people, and that the total number of people in Nepal has now increased to over 7 million.
In a recent report, the Nepalese government also said that the number of climbers in Nepal’s national parks and wilderness areas had grown by a whopping 70 per cent in the last five years.
The number of tourists visiting the Himalaya plateau in 2015 was estimated at 2.9 million, and there are now over 2.5 million people in these areas, according to the government.
According to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the Himalays are one of the most dangerous mountains in the planet.
The Himalayan region is home to nearly one million fatalities each year from mountaineering accidents and suicide, and more than one million deaths from the disease coronavirus.
The region is also home to some of the poorest countries in the World.
The country ranks second-worst in the global poverty index, and is one of its poorest nations, according the UN.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has described Nepal as the world leader in mountaineers, with an estimated 1.2 million active climbers in the country, according a 2015 report.
In addition, it ranks number two in the rankings for climbing-related injuries and death.
Nepal is also a key centre of the international HIV/AIDS pandemic, which has claimed more than 1.8 million lives, with over 100,000 new cases confirmed in Nepal in 2016.
The Kathmandu region, home to many of Nepal’s poorest people, is also plagued by the countrys biggest outbreak, which is estimated to have claimed more then 50,000 lives, and caused a devastating surge in the number and spread of coronaviruses.
According the UNODC, the world population of Nepal is projected to reach 7.5 billion in 2030, with a projected increase of 2.2 billion to 6.8 billion people.
