About Us

KATHMANDU TRIBUNE (Registration No. 304/073-74) is the digital English and Nepali daily run by Nepal Tribune Media. It is based in Kathmandu, Nepal. Independent news from Nepal. Investigative + Data Journalism. It offers exclusive news from Nepal and elsewhere.

English journalism in Nepal is still in its infancy. Therefore, Kathmandu Tribune focuses on pressing forward to contribute significantly towards English journalism. Of late there’s a trend in Nepal where new online media websites solely focus on Nepali content. Kathmandu Tribune strives to fill that ‘space’ or ‘gap’ to be precise. Kathmandu Tribune is a startup initiative and any support or help is welcome.

We aim to promote English and Nepali news reading in Nepali society.
