We organize world-class fast packs in Nepal for trail runners. These are quick, light, and self-supported high altitude adventures.

All trips

  • Include arrival days on Saturday \
  • Are self-supported (no porters or mules) and co-led by Sudeep and Seth.
  • They are also all-inclusive in terms of land costs. In other words, you don’t have to worry about any costs once you arrive except for pocket money to buy beer, snacks, and gifts.
