      1. Just fuck it bullshit… Have you ever seen the beauty and the infrastructure of Butwal ever….
        Analyze by the facilities bro not the weather ????

    1. u know there is to much hot in summer but Butwal now had manage the temperature by maintaining clean green city

      1. I agree bro…
        Simply butwal is the best nd i can see in a decade of year…it will go past to the no.1 spot for sure

  1. The south eastern city Biratnagar is way down the list. It should be in no 2. It is second largest city of Nepal and a huge business center.

  2. The list seems quite good but not appropriate. How the hell Kathmandu is the no 1 city to live. Birgunj, Biratnagar are the hottest cities of nepal. Maybe the author should research other suitable cities of nepal. Dang, Surkhet are some of the promising place which the list is missing.

  3. Article title should change to ‘biggest cities in nepal’ not ‘BEST cities to LIVE IN’. Kathmandu is UNLIVABLE except for people stuck there due to essential business and/or lack of other options!

  4. BHARATPUR should be in 3rd because of centrally located and also known as 76 district of Nepal & have big malls and shopping centre.

  5. well… Author… What about KawasOti… It Serves As Administrative Sub-Headquarter Of Government offices for Nawalparasi District.. One And Only Most Beautiful City, Rapidly increasing of Population, 60% Of Land Are Greenery Which we Can Get Fresh air And Water and Located in a Heart Of Nepal… How Can U miss It From Ur List… ??

  6. Butwal is best of all, the fastest growing city of nepal. In all point of view like education, health , transportation and industries. Being in terai region it is little bit hot cities but submuncipility is highly concerned in senitation and plantation which creat healthy environment hear. At present road development of butwal is unexpected development among the cities of whole nepal. Beside this it is also famous for tourism as it host nearby lumbini ,the birth place of gautam buddha. More over siddhababa, fulbari, global piece park, banbatika, hill park are developing tourism centre. Banking business and market are also in top condition as it export its product to kathmandu, pokhara , palpa and so many districts of western hills. Since in rescent year it has became the no 1 city to accumulate huge tax for Nepal and sunauli naka even won the title of biggest naka . HENCE I SUPPORT BUTWAL IS BEST AND BEST CITY OF NEPAL.

    1. U r right bro…
      Its one of the promissing city of nepal…nd wid some new infra structure uphand going on constructiom like saage in bhw.,..gautam buddha international airport,..butwal-behliya six lane road..tourism conference hall, and most importantly the greater lumbimi metro city…
      Butwal lies along the hills wid plane land…the top most best town planned city nd hopely in upcoming future no.1 best city in nepal

  7. Narayangarh is the best city of Nepal,in my point of view. A medical city, a good educational hub,central Nepal, Good transportation throughout the country, no political voilance, best temperature throughout the year, no water scarcity problem, 100_150km drive to major cities of Nepal, a perfect business and industrial hub, a proposed Metro city of the country and many more. A tourism hub Royal Chitwan National park is here which is supposed to be one of the main destination for the tourists.

  8. In my point of view complaining abt the temperature of Butwal city is abit not so gud becoz it lies along the hills with highly nd dense amount of green forest covering from all over the land nd as we see a decades of years back the development rate of butwal in the highest compared all other cities…best urban planned city,best educational hub,health facility is well available,large no. Of banks nd bank headquaters,second most richest city after kathmandu,smooth nd wide highways nd road…nd the best link transit to the indian boarder through sunauli nd equally the central transit centre to export gud to hilly city such as palpa syngja gulmi pokharq baglung myagdi etc..west to dang kaplivastu nepalhunj nd towards east to bharatpur hetauda…

  9. According to data butwal is second position after kathamandu literate city in Nepal also Butwal is very high rank everything like educational finance marketing industries banking pharmaceutical

  10. Why janakpur in 7 it should be oin top 3 as well it is one of the fast growing citiy in nepal it is also the heart of terai region and kathmandu is not the best city to live and most of the beautiful cities r missing like ghorahi bhairhawa birendranagar dhangadhi ithari lahan lalitpur nepalgunj where r these…….

  11. Few points i’d Like to suggest is:
    1. Either it should be Pokhara or Biratnagar, the second largest city of Nepal not both.
    2. If I am not mistaken, Lalitpur is considered within the Kathmandu valley.
    3. And yes, I w’d say Butwal is the best & most suitable city for living. As I have travelled to most number of the cities in Nepal except for Biratnagar and Nepalgunj.
    The best thing I love about this city is it’s well managed roads, city cleanliness, good health facilities and remarkable education, it’s safe and very good market. And of course the thing to boast is it’s economy, second after the Capital Kathamandu.

  12. Birgunj 9th ma re. Dimag thik thau ma ta xi ni… it is one of the very important city of Nepal where almost all Nepal is surviving though birgunj. And don’t forget it is the financial capital of Nepal.
    And talking about money matter 50% of birgunj basi will buy 50% of Nepal. U should get proper knowledge
