Most of Nepal?s three hundred species of fern are found in this forest type, as are many medicinal plants whose curative properties are known to ayurvedic practitioners but have yet to be studied in the West.

Better health and sanitation increases population growth, for example ? and will do until poverty and the status of women is addressed. In the meantime, agriculture has to be improved to feed all those new mouths, deforestation must be reversed to solve the fuel wood and fodder crisis, and industry developed. So irrigation projects, roads and hydroelectric schemes are needed ? all requiring foreign support. If development is left entirely to Nepalis, better education is required, which means addressing the poverty that prevents children attending classes and teachers from working in rural areas.

Nepal?s gravest institutional problem is surely corruption. A government job with decision-making authority has long been regarded as a licence to collect ?commissions?. Byzantine bureaucratic procedures are devised precisely to elicit ?speed money? from supplicants, opportunism being perpetuated by low salaries and, no doubt, the sight of piles of development loot. In the 1990s, the intense competition for power also politicized every branch of the bureaucracy: jobs were awarded on the basis of party loyalty, not merit, the appointees ordered to skim off as much as they could for the party (plus a bit for themselves) and given political cover to do so. Few scandals ever touched the elite. Since 2006, there has been little sign that the accession to power of former Maoists will change the prevailing political culture.

Only thirty percent of the valley?s sewage is properly treated, as municipal treatment plants don?t operate properly. In many areas raw waste ? or toxic effluents from carpet factories and the like ? drains directly into rivers.

Foreign donors subsidize road building but rarely fund maintenance, so as the road network grows it also detiorates.

Supplying credit through the official Agriculture Development Bank has grown impossibly bureaucratic, but microcredit loan programmes look more promising. Allowing farmers to grow cash crops is another possible solution, but roads are needed if farmers are going to compete with Indian imports.

High-yielding seeds and animal breeds such as the Jersey cross ? fondly known as bikasi gai, or ?development cow? ? have had some success, while pesticides and chemical fertilizers are now widely used in the Kathmandu Valley and Terai.

The chief cause of death is nothing more complicated than diarrhoea, itself the consequence of poor sanitation. The majority of rural Nepalis are obliged to defecate in the open; even in urban areas, toilets are often inadequately designed and sewage systems conspicuous by their absence or inefficiency. As a result around half of Nepalis have access to safe water from springs, wells or communal taps.

The growth rate will remain high as long as women remain comparatively ill-educated and low-status, and as long as children are needed to fetch water, gather fuel and tend animals ? and to care for the aged parents in the absence of pensions or state support.

The development industry Everyone loves to give aid to Nepal. The country receives some $500?800 million annually in direct grants and concessionary loans, making it one of the world?s leading aid recipients on a per-capita basis. Foreign aid accounts for a staggering 55?70 per cent of the money spent by Nepal?s government on projects (capital expenditure), and around a quarter of total expenditure; the joke goes that the country can?t afford to develop.

Development ? or bikas, in Nepali ? has been the country?s political mantra ever since the Ranas were booted out of office in 1950. And yet Nepal remains one of the world?s poorest nations, with a per-capita income of just $470 (a figure largely created by migrant labourers in the Middle East), and a quarter of the population living on less than a dollar a day. On the UN?s 2008 Human Development Index, Nepal ranked 145th out of 153 countries.

Buses Several companies operate tourist buses and minibuses from Pokhara to Kathmandu, which usually leave around 7am. The fare is around Rs400, which is about twice the price of public buses, but the tourist services are more comfortable and somewhat faster and safer, and they pick up passengers in Lakeside and Damside. More expensive ($18 or so) luxury coaches offer air conditioning and an alternative 8.30am departure; operators change from year to year, but Greenline is the most established. A handful of companies also run tourist buses to Sauraha (for Chitwan National Park); the fare is Rs300, or $12 for Greenline?s luxury bus.

Two nearby museums are worth visiting if you?re in the area. The Pokhara Regional Museum (daily except Tues 10am?5pm, Friday closes at 3pm; Rs10), located south of Mahendra Pul, is small but quite well done, with informative displays and commentary on Nepali ethnic groups. The tiny Tamu Kohibo Museum (daily 10am?4pm; Rs20) sits on the opposite side of the canyon, and is reached by a lane heading down from Mahendra Pul. Dedicated to the shamanic traditions of Gurung culture, it gives an intriguing introduction to an important ethnic group.

The obligatory destination is Siddha Gupha, Nepal?s biggest cave, which incredibly was discovered only in 1987. It?s 10m wide, 400m long and full of stalactites, not to mention a sizeable bat population. You?ll need to bring your own torch/flashlight. It takes about an hour and a half to walk to the cave from Bandipur ? the route is not well signposted, but you can hire a guide for around Rs150. A trail also leads up to it from the Prithvi Highway at Bimalnagar, 1km east of Dumre. A hike to Siddha Gupha can be combined with a visit to another nearby cave, Patale Dwar (?Portal to the Underworld?) ? supposedly a geologic wonder. You can also visit the silk farm, an easy half-hour walk from the town.
