Stage 1 – Sotikhola to Dhoban

November 12, 2024

Day 4.  Stage 1.

Race from Soti Khola to Dhoban. Night in tea-house. Check point at Machhakhola.

Sotikhola sits on the banks of the Budi Gandaki river, which we’ll follow almost to its source. The first day used to be almost flat (Nepali flat), on good (if rough) trails with plenty of ups and downs. We’ll pass rice fields and run through small villages. This will likely be the warmest day of all being at such low altitude. You’ll see villages mixed with Gurung, Magar and Brahmin-Chhetri people.
