June 26: The 12th edition of the Kora Challenge, arguably one of the greatest rides in the Himalayas, will take place on July 16. This event is being organized every year since 2011.
More than 4,000 cyclists from four different countries are expected to attend the event, the organisers said in a statement.
In its 12th edition this year, on 16th July 2022, it is expected that it will reach 4000 cyclists in 15 locations in Nepal, and four different countries as well, the organizers wrote in a statement.
Events like these play an important role in promoting a healthier lifestyle, showcasing solutions to combat climate change, and when done at this scale, will help promote the country with a solution-driven brand image.
Targeted to building a healthy cycling community, the Kora Challenge also raises fund for causes every year, and since 2011, has injected over Rs 7 million for development activities and charities, all raised by the riders.
“This year, we aim to support the family of Yam Lal Rasaily, a cycling para-athlete who unfortunately did not survive the pandemic. We encourage all interested stakeholders in Nepal to benefit from the visibility this event provides and come join the organisers in a mutually beneficial partnership,” the statement read.
The organizers have urged the cycling community to again come out in the masses to enjoy this cycling festival.
The event is deeply honoured to have the support of the Nepal Tourism Board, B&B Hospital, Turkish Airlines, Image Ark, Makura Creations, Unity for Sustainability, Jay San Photography, Kazi studios, and Himalayan General Insurance, among others, the organisers said.
