Students in Nepal

Have you thought about how many people there will be in your district in 10 or 15 years? Well, now you can find out.

These six districts are projected to have the highest population in Nepal in 2031, according to the Central Bureau Statistics of Nepal.

Kathmandu
Rupandehi
Morang
Kailali
Sunsari
Jhapa

Kathmandu, the capital, will continue to have the highest number of residents. The other five
districts belong to the Terai region.

Similarly, the six districts projected to have the lowest population in Nepal in 2031 are:

Manang
Mustang
Rasuwa
Dolpa
Humla
Mugu

Geographically, these districts are highly mountainous and often face the challenge of a lack of infrastructure and development.
