Race Description

This is a stage race along one of Nepal’s least known but most beautiful trekking routes. It has a mixture of Hindu and Tibetan culture, a rich heritage of Buddhism with many active, living monasteries. It is still rich in forests and the rivers are pristine. The route even takes in a visit to the Tibetan border and a 5,135m pass.

The trails are mainly wide and runnable, with some steep detours up to secluded monasteries. Altitude will be a challenge along with consistency of effort day after day.
