Note from General Secretary

‘Run for Langtang’ is back again with its exhilarating event “3rd TAAN International Langtang Marathon”. Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal (TAAN) organizes varied activities throughout the calendar year with the flag ship event called Run for Langtang. The primary aim is to promote sport tourism as a way of tourism promotion with running as well as its preferred activity to spread the message to promote conservation of flora, faunas, rare and elusive Red Panda.

It is a matter of great joy and pride for TAAN that from past 2 years we are organizing marathon to promote Nepal as one of the major destinations for sports tourism in global map and sell attractive package to domestic tourist as well. This year we are expecting more Nepali as well foreign participants.

I am confident that such an event helps to unfold more opportunities to local communities. Hence, local stakeholders and establishments need to be aware enough to sustain it. Local participation is a prerequisite for the sustainability. TAAN always welcome helping and supportive hands in coming days too.

I express my sincere gratitude to all stakeholders, participants, supporting agencies and everyone involved in this venture. Thank you so much and also expect such collaboration in future as well. Thank you everyone for making it a success.

We welcome your constructive suggestions and feedback to standardize it in the days to come. 

Best Wishes
