The fifth edition of the Himalayan Outdoor Festival (HOF) at Hattiban was quite a fun filled weekend for the outdoor enthusiasts with The Northface as the main sponsor, powered by Redbull, local media partner The Kathmandu Post and international media partner MTB Mag Asia. The event was supported by many MTB and adventure brands.
The event this year brought together even more outdoors and sports lovers camping out in the pine forest of Hattiban for the weekend while many were there for the beautiful Saturday. On the evening of Friday, everyone enjoyed the first ever screening of the documentary of Mira Rai.
The Saturday started off with the Ultra Running at 8.30am in various lengths followed by Mountain Bike XC race, rock climbing and finally the downhill race. It was interesting to see that adventure is slowly starting to become a part of the urban Kathmandu culture with many families there with their little or teen children enjoying the various adventure activities there at the event.
MTB Mag Asia was also there to cover the highlights from the Downhill race
