Geography of Kathmandu

The metropolitan city is located in the northwestern part of Kathmandu Valley. The city covers an area of 50.67 square kilometres (19.56 sq mi). The average elevation is 1,350 metres (4,430 ft) above sea level. The city is bounded by the Lalitpur Sub-metropolitan City to the south, Kirtipur Municipality to the southwest, Madyapur Thimi Municipality to the east, and different Village Development Committees of Kathmandu to the north, the west, and the northeast. However, the urban agglomerate of Kathmandu-Patan-Kirtipur-Thimi-Bhaktapur covers the entire valley and extends beyond the valley to satellite towns of Banepa, Panauti, and Dhulikhel in the east....Wikipedia
