This is not to much a race as an aesthetic challenge. It is around 50km (we have to do more research to find the smoothest route possible) but at a steady 5km walking pace it can be completed in 10 hours.

Provisional route

  • Start 6am at Swayambu Stupa.
  • Then the toughest and only serious climb of the day to the Jamacho Stupa
  • Then there is the long downhill through the Nagarjun Jungle.
  • Follow the ridge from Mudkhu to Tinpiple.
  • Then climb¬†Tarkeshwor Mandir saying hello to the Sadhu living there.
  • Continue here to pass the army camp and to Gurje Bhanjyang. There is a water tap here.
  • Continue on jeep road to Dandagaon
  • Continue to Nagi Gumba, first on a small foot trail, then jeep road.
  • From Nagi, all downhill on the ridge to Kopan Gumba.
  • The last 2km are going to be stinky running with traffic on small roads. Hold your breath.
  • Arrive at Bouddha Stupa. It is about to be packed so do your best and be careful of others. Complete three koras.
