KTM Series is now Snail Trail Races

We missed you!

We have a new name, plus more fun trails near and far. Curated by the same team of trail bums and nerds, Snail Trail Series includes trail races (10K and 3K), day hikes (12K to 15K) and now launching – mountain treks! Beat the monotony and head outdoors again!

Trail Races

See Races Calendar »

Type: Walker-friendly races on handpicked trails in Kathmandu valley
Distances: 10K and 3K
Duration: Half a day
Frequency: Once a month

Previously called KTM Series. The Series sees around 300 people in each event (pre-pandemic figures), of different ages, nationalities and background. While there are winners (80 of them!), this is purely a fun day out with family and friends. We have two hiking guides for the event and a generous cut-off time of 4 hours, which means you can walk at a comfortable speed . 3K is for kids and their parents. It is a great way to spend a Saturday with your loved ones in a fun, safe way while enjoying beautiful hills of Kathmandu Valley.

Mountain Treks

See Treks Calendar »

Type: Longer overnight mountain adventures outside Kathmandu
Duration: Varies by trip (4 to 12 days)

Mountain treks are newly rolled out! We’ve combined our love for mountains, people and logistics to bring you some of the best adventures in the Himalayas. We take it slow and make several short pauses to enjoy our time, mingle with the locals, breathe fresh air and get to know the mountains more closely. Embark on a journey with us and let the jawdropping views, rustic culture and pristine trails fill you with awe and wonder.
