Nepal is often called the "roof of the world" because of its high elevation. According to the web site asiatravel.com, some other "nicknames" for the Himalayan country are "A Root Between Two Stones" and "Mother of the Universe" (Sagarmatha), specifically referring to the country's most famous landmark, Mt. Everest.
