The Himalayan Times is an English-language broadsheet newspaper published and distributed daily in Nepal. Prakash Rimal is the editor-in-chief.[1] In the annual newspaper classification report published by Press Council Nepal in 2018, it was placed in the A+ category, the highest possible rank.[2]

The newspaper was founded on 23 November 2001.[3] It is based in Anamnagar, Kathmandu.[4][3] It is owned by International Media Network Nepal (Pvt) Ltd which in turn is owned by Asia Pacific Communications Associate (APCA) Nepal Pvt Ltd, a joint venture between Indian and Nepali investors. The paper's competitors tried to organise and lobby against the entry of foreign-owned newspaper in the country, but were not successful.[4]

At the time of its founding, it published in 12 pages, six of them coloured, and was priced as Rs 2. Within a year, it had become one of the premier English language dailies in Nepal, and claimed to be number one in terms of readership.[4]
