Publisher's Note

This issue, touches on the subject closest to our hearts - Eco. And that takes us to some remarkable places, notable for their natural and or cultural beauty. What makes these destinations worthy is the fact that the governments have realised the importance of preservation – whether its for the preservation of what they have for future generations, or simply to attract travellers who are most conscious of their carbon footprints – and have mandated the protection of swathes of forests and wilderness, and encouraging (if not funding) rural tourism to boost the self-sustainability of local communities.

This is not unfounded: for a country so small, it manages to pack in 8 World Heritage sites, and its history dates back to over 2,000 years. Here, intricately-decorated hilltop temples boast panoramic views over the plains, and verdant tea plantations stretch across the undulating hills as far as the eye can see.

Envisioned as a means of promoting and reinvigorating tourism around the remote village of Ghya Ru, the 8-day Yak Ru Annapurna Challenge mountain bike stage race is an endurance competition unlike any other. Participants race through amazingly diverse landscapes over the course of 5 stages plus 2 non-racing 'group rides' in Nepal’s iconic Annapurna Range.
