Nepal Climbing Sport Association (NCSA)

6th General Assembly & Election

The Nepal Climbing Sport Association (NCSA) was founded in 2010 following our slogan “Dedicated to promote Adventure sports and Tourism.” As the national body for sport climbing in Nepal, NCSA is officially connected to the Ministry of Youth and Sports and registered under the National Sports Council of Nepal (NSC-88). NCSA is also a full member of the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC). Our primary goal is to popularize this sport across the country by organizing sport climbing events, training programs, workshops, and competitions for the youth of Nepal, thus fostering its growth on a national scale. Nepal is renowned for its opportunities in mountaineering and adventure sports, and sport climbing has the potential to significantly enhance adventure tourism in the region.

On August 12, 2023, the Nepal Climbing Sport Association (NCSA) successfully held its 6th General Assembly and Election in Kathmandu, Nepal. The event was graced by notable figures including Mr. Tanka Lal Ghishing, Member Secretary of Nepal Sport Council, Mr. Prakash Adhikari, Mayor of Tokha Municipality, and Mr. Dhan Bahadur Gurung, Secretary of Nepal Mountain Association (NMA), Representatives from related provincial sport climbing associations, athletes, guests from relatable organizations, and journalists also attended.
