Girl Outdoor Magazine is all about empowering women adventurers and new documentary 'Moksha' does just that. What started as a Kickstarter campaign is now a fully fledged film about three mountain biking Nepali women.

Moksha is a film that highlights three Nepali women who have dedicated themselves to spreading the joy that mountain biking can bring to women across the Himalayas.

Follow these young women as they compete in mountain bike races across the Asian continent, claim titles as the first female MBLA certified mountain bike guides in Nepal's history and most importantly, act as role models for other women and girls all around the world.

This authentic and moving film celebrates Usha, Nishma, and Roja as they remain true to their dreams of adventure and environmental stewardship. Balancing cultural and familial obligations and pushing for a much more gender and socially equitable society in their home country of Nepal. Along with the Kickstart campaign, this film was made possible by And She’s Dope Too and Backcountry.com
