Introducing

Banke District, a part of Province No. 5, is one of the 77 districts of Nepal. The district, located in midwestern Nepal with Nepalganj as its district headquarters, covers an area of 2,337 km2 (902 sq mi) and had a population of 385,840 in 2001 and 491,313 in 2011. There are three main cities in the Banke District: Nepalganj, Kohalpur and Khajura Bajaar.

Banke is bordered on the west by Bardiya district. Rapti zone’s Salyan and Dang Deukhuri Districts border to the north and east. To the south lies Uttar Pradesh, India, a country in Asia; specifically Shravasti and Bahraich districts of Awadh. East of Nepalganj the international border follows the southern edge of the Dudhwa Range of the Siwaliks.

Most of the district is drained by the Rapti, except the district’s western edge is drained by the Babai. Rapti and Babai cross into Uttar Pradesh, a state in India, Nepal’s neighboring country and eventually join the Karnali, whose name has changed to Ghaghara.
