These brilliant mountains, crediting heavenly magnificence in Nepal, have assumed a vast part in the upgrade of the travel industry. Our travel industry exchange relies upon them. Numerous vacationers anxiously visit Nepal to see the mountains. Some of them come here to ascend the frigid mountains; in particular, they climb Mt. Everest, the most noteworthy peak on the planet.

Consequently, mountains are the most durable wellsprings of water. The environment and climate are new and solid in the mountains. That is why the people who live in mountain areas are always fiery and vigorous. 

We can have a few impediments from the mountains. They are one of the deterrents to the improvement of the country. The ripeness of the land isn't wealthy in the mountains. The ranchers are under the destitution line. Streets are required by some other development developers. In any case, street-making in the mountains ends up being extremely sluggish and costly. The way of life of individuals is truly challenging. Numerous catastrophic events, for example, avalanches, floods, and soil disintegration, seriously affect individuals. The principal issue in the mountains is the absence of good transportation and correspondence. These days, the way of life of individuals in the mountains is improving because the issue of transportation and correspondence has decreased. The majority of individuals have begun developing vegetables and natural products, which end up being more profitable than conventional farming. On the off chance that the mountain locales are appropriately developed, the situation in the nation surely gets elevated.

It is said that the advancement of the mountains in Nepal upholds the improvement of the entire country.

The public authorities and all areas concerned are expected to do their best to mitigate the hopelessness of the occupants of the mountain locales.
