With this sense of excitement and anticipation, the Tundikhel ground swelled up to capacity with fans on January 7, 2017. The occasion was the grand finale of Nepal’s first ever bike reality show, Pulsar Dare Venture season II. The concert also planned to announce the winners of their 10 bikers who had completed the daring journey from Kathmandu, all the way to Takasindu, Solukhumbu on their motorbikes.
