Our Team

In every tour or trek that we design we are always aware of our client's needs and also the needs of the environment and the native peoples in the more remote regions of this part of the world. We hope to demonstrate the regions of this area of the world without glitz and false promotions that reward neither the traveler nor the people living here. It is hoped that when your tour/trek is completed you will carry away with you a sense of the warmth and hospitality of the region's peoples, but also a better understanding of the beauty and fragile environment that creates such wondrous scenery and a sense of inner peace that will remain deep within you for many years to come.
