GRAPHIC DESIGNER-TURNED-MOUNTAIN BIKE GUIDE, MANDIL PRADHAN KNOWS MORE THAN MOST ABOUT MOUNTAIN BIKING IN THE HIMALAYAS OF NEPAL
“I’ve been in love with mountains and bikes for as long as I can remember, so it was only a matter of time before realising how much fun I could have with the combination of both. I was introduced to the amazing world of mountain bikes at age 13 by my teacher, and that one, simple act changed the course of my life completely!
“Having been guiding mountain bike tours in Nepal for more than a decade, one of the things that satisfies me the most now is fostering new mountain biking talent in Nepal. Whether that’s on the race scene or as part of our guide team. Or in many cases, both!
“Adventure, to me, is being out in an unpredictable environment – where the view isn’t changed by remote control, the light not altered by a switch, and the temperature not controlled by thermostat. Adventure is here in the Himalayas of Nepal, come and share it with us!”
