Himal Southasian is back! Coming soon from its Colombo home.

We’re excited to announce that Himal Southasian will soon be resuming publication from Colombo. The magazine was forced to suspend operations in Kathmandu last year due to deliberate bureaucratic strangulation.

In Colombo, we’ve felt welcomed by friends and colleagues from media and civil society. We’re legally incorporated as a not-for-profit guaranteed limited company. From our launchpad in Colombo, we plan to do more original, innovative and independent work, hoping to make good use of the capabilities of digital media. And Himal will continue to be an open and vibrant platform for ideas.
