A Russian aircraft that arrived in Kathmandu one month before to conduct a study about Nepal's high-altitude weather and climate conditions returned some days ago after completing the two-week long study. 


A team comprising around 250 members including climate and weather experts from the US, UK, Italy, Switzerland and Germany, technical human resources and crew members arrived here on the aircraft sent by the Russian Federation. 


The study project commissioned by the European Union was carried out with cooperation from the Nepal Academy of Science and Technology (NAST) and in collaboration with the Nepal-based German Embassy. 


Experts hope that this type of survey would be useful for Nepal's aviation and agriculture sectors.
