Strava KOMs in the Himalayas

Have you ever explored Strava segments outside of the areas you normally ride?

Last night I wondered, “Are there any KOMs in the Himalayas?” The answer: Of course there are:

Nepal Strava KOM

On Strava, I went to the “Segment Explore” page, typed in Nepal, and boom. Check out some of those segments: 31.4% grade for 2.9 miles (owned by Sami Inkinen of San Francisco and the only person to have logged that ride), 20% for 3.4 miles (KOM Mandil Pradhan of Katmandu over 17 others who have taken this route), and so forth.

To view those Strava segments, visit the Strava segement explore page for Nepal.
