Kuensel (Dzongkha: ཀུན་གསལ།, Clarity) is the national newspaper of the Kingdom of Bhutan. It was the only local newspaper available in Bhutan until 2006 when two more newspapers were launched. The government of Bhutan owns 51% of Kuensel while 49% is held by the public.

Kuensel is published in two language editions: Dzongkha (the national language) and English, everyday except sunday with a total weekly circulation of more than 15,000 copies and an average weekly readership of 130,000.

The paper is distributed throughout the country by a string of sales agents appointed in all the dzongkhags, dungkhags and towns, while subscribers overseas are fed through mail service/e-mail. Subscribers also get a PDF version of the paper.
