Plane crashed in mountainous country (5)


I believe the answer is:

'mountainous country' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'plane crashed' is the wordplay.
'crashed' indicates an anagram.
'plane' with letters rearranged gives 'NEPAL'.

'in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for nepal that I've seen before include "Mountainous country", "mountainous area", "Himalayan kingdom", "Gurkhas' homeland", "neighbour of Tibet".)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
