HimalayanXtri

November 7

The World’s Highest Extreme Triathlon in Nepal began in the Himalayans.

The Roof Of The World

Swim4.jpgHimalayanXtri is a new extreme long-distance triathlon to come to Nepal in South Asia and the first in the region as part of the XTRI World Tour.

Nepal embodies the very definition of the words extreme and diverse. Home to the great Himalayas and 8 of the world’s top 10 highest mountains, giant glaciers, subtropical forests, and sweeping arid deserts. It is about the closeness of sharing the day with your support and crew. It is about community. But never forget. This race is seriously extreme. Nothing in Nepal is flat!
