Embracing Social Responsibility: Making a Positive Impact
From the very beginning of our journey as a mountain biking tour operator, Pokhara Mountain Bike Adventure Pvt. Ltd. has been dedicated to social responsibility. We firmly believe in giving back to the community and fostering sustainable development. Here are some of our CSR initiatives that showcase our commitment to making a positive impact.
Empowering Local Youth through Free MTB Training to Empower them to Become a Guide and National Riders
Recognizing the lack of opportunities for skillful manpower in the mountain biking industry, we took the initiative to offer free mountain biking training and coaching to local youths, particularly those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds. By providing access to education and skills, we aim to empower these individuals to be a part of the tourism industry and reap its benefits. Today, we are proud to see many of these youths become national champions, South Asian Downhill champions, and professional MTB bikers.

In the village of Kutumsa, where access to basic necessities is limited, we felt the need to make a difference. Pokhara Mountain Bike Adventure joined hands with our kind-hearted customers and volunteers to support the construction of a school in Kutumsa. This initiative has led to the establishment of a well-equipped school with better facilities and resources, including books, uniforms, snacks, stationery, and sports equipment.

We contributed to food relief efforts to support the needy people who were affected by the lockdown, ensuring they had access to essential sustenance during these challenging times.
Promoting Female Guides
To challenge societal stereotypes and promote gender equality, we initiated a program to engage female riders as professional guides in our company. We established a committee to select and motivate female riders, providing them with training and mentorship opportunities. Our female riders, including Sophiya Biswakarma, Nikita Pariyar, Isha Rai, and Babita Pariyar, are on their way to becoming certified guides in 2022 and 2023.

This fully sponsored program provided free bicycles to participants, and our team riders volunteered their support to spread the message of environmental conservation.
