Better known for its Himalayan massifs, Nepal boasts eight of the world’s 14 highest peaks that exceed 8,000 m in altitude. It contains Mt. Everest (8,848 m), the world's highest peak, as well as seven others that rise more than 8,000 m above sea level. Many people also know Nepal as the birth place of Lord Buddha and therefore an important destination for Buddhist pilgrims. It was at Lumbini, as inscribed on the pillar erected by the Indian king Ashoka, that the Buddha was born. Lumbini also has a number of artistic temples built through international support.
