Percent of the course on un-paved trails: 90%

Description: 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.
