The Nepal Traverse is the first solo paraglider 'vol bivouac' (fly-camping) attempt of the entire length of the Nepali Himalayas.

There have been a number of great paragliding flights by other paraglider pilots across parts of the route but none by any British paraglider pilots and none have attempted starting and ending at the Indian borders. UK paraglider pilot Steven Mackintosh (Tosh) wishes to make this adventure an inspiration to others, and provide a lasting charitable legacy for Nepal.

The ultimate outcome of this adventure will be to generate funds for two worthwhile Nepali charities: Karma Flights and Save the Karnali. Tosh is initially raising funds to cover production costs of the full film. Income generated from the film and talks will be donated to the Nepali charities.

Nepali charities

Karma Flights -

Helping to support education and tackle poverty of Nepali children

Save the Karnali -

Supporting the protection of Nepal’s most pristine and last free-flowing river

The Nepal Traverse full film fundraising

Tosh is fundraising to cover the costs of completing production of the full film.

The completed film will then be used to generate funds for the two Nepali charities.

If you are able to support in any way, small or big, that would be amazing!

Even a small donation would help to achieve a longer lasting charitable donation.
