A landlocked country bordering China and India, Nepal is famous for its mountainous regions, including Everest, the world's highest peak. The year 2006 saw the end of both the bloody civil war that had gripped Nepal for a decade and of the once all-powerful monarchy, replaced by a parliamentary republic that has since been in political deadlock. Pressing human rights concerns in Nepal include high levels of human trafficking, particularly of children, the persistence of discrimination and forced labour based on caste or ethnic background and the failure to address the abuses committed by all sides during the civil war.
