One of the most exhilarating and affluent form of sports: Motorsports has gained quite an admiration among the Nepali youth over the recent years. Since the past decade, Nepal Automobiles Association (NASA) has worked tirelessly to promote the adrenalin-charged sport in Nepal.
A handful of proud national representatives have succeeded to advocate Nepal’s participation in the international motorsports arena. However, lacking the proper infrastructure, Nepal has not yet been able to produce award worthy champions, referees and marshals in the field of motorsports.
With this in mind- Ultimate Himalayan Motorland, a robust, racing circuit was formed in the heart of Dhulikhel, Kavrepalanchowk which, fascinatingly enough happens to be the highest altitude racing circuit in the world.
With facilities like Go-karts, training simulators and skilled trainers, the 17,000 sq m racetrack happens to the only existing racetrack in Nepal approved by the NASA Nepal and recognized by FIA and FIM.
