Seven people were killed when a swollen river swept them away in Dang district, also in south-western Nepal.
In nearby Bardiya district, five were dead and 15 were missing in floods. Four people were killed in floods in Banke district.
Sixteen people were reported killed by landslides in several districts.
The torrential rains obstructed major highways and stranded hundreds, while hundreds more have been displaced by flooding in the southern plains.
