Sagarmāthā (Nepali: सगरमाथा अञ्चल   ) is one of the fourteen zones located in eastern Nepal. It includes mountain districts of the Himalayas (including Mount Everest) in the north, hill districts in the center, and valley districts of the Terai in the south. It is bordered by China to the north, India to the south, the Kosi Zone to the east and the Janakpur Zone to the west.

Sagarmāthā is divided into six districts:

District Type Headquarters
Khotang Hill Diktel
Okhaldhunga Hill Okhaldhunga
Saptari Outer Terai Rajbiraj
Siraha Outer Terai Siraha
Solukhumbu Mountain Salleri
Udayapur Inner Terai Triyuga

The main city of the Sagarmāthā Zone is Rajbiraj which is also the headquarters. Other towns of the Sagarmāthā hill area are Katari, Okhaldunga, Diktel, Salleri and Namchebajar; while Kathauna , Lahan, Fatepur, Rajbiraj and Siraha are in the outer Terai. Triyuga is an emerging city in the zone.

Sagarmāthā takes its name from the Nepalese name for Mount Everest, which is located in the very north of the zone within the Sagarmatha National Park (1,148 km²) in the Solu Khumbu district. Sagarmāthā means "the Head in the Great Blue Sky".[1]
