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.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page: http://www.thehockeyhouse.net
