About Us

LocalPatrika, the country’s leading English-language daily online news portal, was launched in August 2020 as Nepal’s leading private-run English-language media publication. Since establishment, the LocalPatrika has cultivated a reputation for reliability, honesty and breaking news.

The LocalPatrika’s political, business, sports, technology, and health reporting are supplemented with opinions from some of Nepal’s and world’s, leading intellectuals and analysts.

With an estimated daily readership of over 100,000 readers on the web, the LocalPatrika has developed a new language to narrate Nepal’s stories in English to both local and international audiences.

We are committed to ethical journalism that privileges facts and the truth. More recently, the LocalPatrika has begun conducting investigations into corruption, malpractices and sexual harassment.
