Eventbrite - #kora19 | Kathmandu Kora Cycling Challenge 2019

kora17 | the cause

This year, KORA will be looking at using the funds that the cyclists will raise to kickstart a wonderful project that will finance cycling trails in the Bungamati Area of Kathmandu valley, making the area perfect for families, amateur riders, and even professional riders wishing to improve their biking skills.

The collective benefits of this fund raising will benefit cyclists themselves, and each contributor can be glad that their contributions have helped Nepal have its first Cycle Friendly Zone – with trails for each type of rider.

At Bungamati, the Bungamati Trails Initiative is led by a group of youth representing different local clubs, working together in this initiative that will lead to more people visiting the place, and create employment opportunities for the locals as cycling guides, repair centres, coffee shops, handicraft centres and also eventually overnight stays. All this will contribute to the reconstruction efforts of this area.

Each contributors contribution will be.recorded as part of this initiative, and each funder can be happy that their contributions has kickstarted something innovative in Nepal.

#kora16 gets quality enhancements from #myGHT

Great Himalaya Trails

GHT LogoThe Kathmandu Kora Cycling Challenge is a yearly event started by socialtours in 2011. Starting with just 35 riders who rode the 50km trail around Kathmandu and raised Rs. 0.45 million for charity, it has now grown to a massive 3000 rider event, who ride 50k, 75k and 100k circuits of the valley, and to date has raised over Rs. 5 million for charity in its five years of running. It has since then invested the money into upgrading, building and rebuilding birthing facilities, and also health posts.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Over the years, the event is getting more and more professional and is set to launch it internationally as a great way to visit the country. The quality enhancements provided through Great Himalaya Trails (GHT) initiative gives it a big boost in this regards, with professionalised trail signs, better safety procedures and marketing boosts.

Great Himalaya Trails are a network of trails in the Nepal Himalayas. The GHT acts as a destination, rather than a tour operator and therefore, the goal of  GHT is to inspire travellers to explore the trails and to connect them to operators who can plan their itineraries.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)

The Cause | #kora16

1.  Medicare on wheels (Gatlang, Rasuwa)

67 Kms as the crow flies, northwest of Kathmandu on the Tamang Heritage trail is a quaint village: Gatlang. With basic health amenities lacking the people of Gatlang, for long have had to drive to Dunchhe or Kathmandu to access proper health care.

Medicare on wheels is a project that aims to provide the people of Gatlang speedy access to healthcare. The money collected from your pledge will be put to buy an ambulance for the people of this village.

2. Help a child get education: Seven schools in seven weeks

After the devastating earthquake of April 2015 most of the schools in the countryside were reduced to rubble. Nepal Cyclist Ride to Rescue (NCRR) took on the responsibility to build 7 schools in 7 weeks at Sikharbesi, Nuwakot.
Till date they have finished building six of the promised seven. The money that you pledge towards Kora this year will go towards the completion of the seventh school.
