The geographical scholarship of both Nepali and foreign scholars of Nepal is com­pared and analysed. The influence of various schools of thoughts in geography and their impact on geography education and research in Nepal is explored. Also analysed is the contribution of studies in Nepal to the advancement of geographical knowledge and under­standings.
