A guest post from Tyler Wasson describing the Mardi Himal trek experience. Want to go here? Fill the form at the bottom and Pokhara-based Freedom Adventures will help you out.  I have been living in Nepal for seven months and as a trail runner, I like to get off the beaten path whenever possible. During […]

If you want to do some big training days, or be a tourist in a different way, ask Upendra to guide you on some runs around the Kathmandu Valley. Upendra is currently getting his official guide licence. It is a tedious process requiring six-weeks attendance to classroom-based classes on guiding. Of course he is learning […]

Our decision to walk from Dhunche to Kathmandu over the Tihar weekend was based partly on aesthetics and partly on pragmatism. Aside from the undeniable beauty of the Gosaikunda lakes and the spectacular views of Langtang the route has various logistical advantages. For one it is accessible within a four-hour drive from Kathmandu which is […]

If you are a slightly adventurous trekker, trail runner or mountain biker, I can […]

Thanks Kris! After an attempt of running/fastpacking the GHT in 2014, which ended in a dislocated shoulder and […]

Many expressed a wish to return to Nepal, obviously, because trail running here is […]

Congratulations to Seth Wolpin on his hard slog around Annapurna. 218km and some +/-10,000m completed in around 72 hours. Plenty of people have gone around the Annapurna Circuit from Besi Sahar to Naya Pul but few with the aim of reducing the hike to as few days as possible. A quick google will find a seven-day trip here, […]
