Kathmandu is the capital and, with more than one million inhabitants, the largest metropolitan city of Nepal. The city stands at an elevation of approximately 1,400 mt in the bowl shaped valley in central Nepal surrounded by four major mountains Shivapuri, Phulchoki, Nagarjun and Chandragiri.

These three districts contain 2.5 million people, as of the 2011 census. Historically, only the Kathmandu Valley was referred to as Nepal by people who lived outside the valley. After the annexation of the valley by the Gorkha kingdom, and subsequent conversion of the valley as the capital of their empire, this designation of Nepal was extended to every land they conquered. The valley itself was referred to as Nepal Proper by the contemporary British historians. Today Kathmandu is not only the capital of the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal but also the headquarters of the Central Region among the five development regions constituted by the 14 administrative zones of Nepal located at the central part of the country. The Central region has three zones Bagmati, Narayani and Janakpur. Kathmandu is located in the Bagmati Zone.
