Come fastpack with us!

Are you a trail runner looking for a new adventure? Or an experienced hiker who like to travel fast and ultra light? We organize small groups of active people who want to get way off the beaten path in the Himalaya.




Highlights


  • Get off the beaten track - we are experts at finding alternative trails (and sometimes just going cross country)

  • Travel without porter or pack animal support. Seriously, there is no need to do this - the lodges have blankets and good food. Travel quick and light!

  • Move at your own pace - you can run when you want or just power hike all day long. We've got you covered.

  • Let us handle the logistics, we've led a lot of trail runners down crazy (and not so crazy) trails in Nepal - we know what we are doing!

  • Cross massive valley systems using three passes (Renjo La, Chola and Kongma La)

  • And yes, you can walk to Everest Base Camp and climb Kalapatther if the spirit moves you.

  • Trip Reports/Photos: 2019 | 2018
