Bheri Zone (Nepali: भेरी अञ्चलListen ) was one of the fourteen zones located in the Mid-Western Development Region of Nepal. Nepalgunj were the administrative headquarters.

Cities and towns were Narayan, Jajarkot and Chhinchu in the "hills"; Nepalgunj, Gularia and Kohalpur in Terai; and Birendranagar in Surkhet Valley in the Inner Terai.

Administrative subdivisions[edit]

Bheri was divided into five districts; since 2015 the three northern districts have been redesignated as part of Karnali Province, while the two southern districts have been redesignated as part of Lumbini Province.
