The Nepal Ice Hockey Association formed a team in Kathmandu, Nepal last week, becoming the first team to come out of the nation since it’s inception just a few months back.
Kathmandu, a city with a population of approximately 700,000, is not known for it’s hockey due to the fact they have never had a hockey team. It’s not known officially as to what the rink situation will be, but there are currently zero rinks built in the entire country.
Originally, it was reported that Pokhara, Langtang and Khumjung would also get new hockey teams, but that has yet to be confirmed as of right now.
Here are a list of attractions in Kathmandu if you intend on watching them play hockey in the near future.
