Welcome to The Record.

We are an independent digital publication based in Kathmandu, Nepal. Our stories examine politics, the economy, society, and culture. We look into events both current and past, offering depth, analysis, and perspective. Explore our features, explainers, long reads, multimedia stories, and podcasts. There’s something here for everyone.

Our Mission

At The Record we believe that frank discussion of caste, gender, wealth, and ethnicity is essential to improving society. Our guiding mission is to inform our readers about the issues affecting all Nepalis so that they can hold public and private sector leaders accountable and shift the current imbalance of power. While our reporting frequently spotlights abuses of power and trust, we also show how public policy and community efforts bring meaningful change. Our goal is to share perspectives that expand the way we understand Nepal—its past, its present, and its future.
