Himalayan Outdoor Festival- Glocal Khabar

Kathmandu, February 13, 2018: Pangro Nepal is set to conduct the seventh edition of Himalayan Outdoor Festival from February 16 to February 18, 2018 at Hattiban Hills, Pharping.

This three-day festival is going to include Dyno competition, slackline, mini ziplines, pump track, TNF Outdoor Training, horizontal bungee along with kids corner, art market, outdoor gear/wear expo, food stalls, live music, and adventure movie screening. The festival has intended to welcome professional as well as amateur outdoor athletes from all over the world to associate with the event. Athletes will converge upon the trails, rocks, and downhill slopes to compete in three major sports-trail running, rock climbing, and mountain biking.

The motive of the event is to contribute certain part of the revenue generated from the race registration fee to running club in Sindhupalchowk and to raise funds to represent Nepal at World Bicycle Forum, 2018 in Peru. If sufficient fund is raised for the World Bicycle Forum, Sahil Shrestha, the founder president of Cycle City Network Nepal, will be participating in the event.

Pangro is an organization involved in conducting outdoor events in Kathmandu with the main focus being mountain biking. It has been actively involved in the event management of Himalayan Outdoor Festival since 2013 and Godavari Running Festival since 2014. Annually more than 2500 people come to witness the festival with the aim of celebrating human-powered adventure sports, live music and Himalayan lifestyle.
