Dang is located at inner Terai in midwestern Nepal. The district covers 2,955 km² with a population of 548,141. Ghorahi (formerly Tribhuvannagar) is the district's administrative center and largest city while Tulsipur to the west is a transportation hub and Rapti Zone's administrative center. There are numerous temples and gumbas in Dang district.This region has majority of people of the Tharu ethnicity. The steep, virtually uninhabited southern slopes of the Mahabharat Range are another cultural buffer zone between traditional
Tharu lands and the culturally distinct Middle hills where Nepali is the dominant language, the homeland of Bhramins and Chhetries.The Kumal (potter) ethnic group is also semi-indigenous.the district borders Uttar Pradesh, a state of India Nepal's neighboring country specifically the Shravasti districts of Awadh. Because the international border follows the southern edge of the outermost Siwalik foothills called the Dudhwa Renge, there is no Outer Terai extending onto the main Ganges Plain inside this district. The permeable geology of the Siwaliks does not support moisture retention or soil development, so they are covered with unproductive scrub forest.
