Choose travel-themes of your interest 

We look forward to help in designing the ideal journey for you. Check-out the variety of travel-themes we offer:

  • Cultural Journeys

    We are fortunate as western people to have been at home in this confusing diversity for years. We consider it a great pleasure to acquaint you with these ancient and unique cultures and its people. Especially during turbulent times of modernity, we desire to help bridge cultures of the east and west in order to enrich both mutually. It is important for us to allow you get in touch with people here allowing you to gain deep insights instead of just taking trips of pure photo-shooting or checking-out so-called points of ‘tourist interest’. We compose our journeys in such a way that allows you to experience, feel and taste firsthand. As such we also invite you to be a home-stay-guest or to connect to the people during village walks. Our guides are mostly from the locality you visit itself. They bridge language barriers for you and provide you with invaluable insider info. As we offer you a bridge to your destination through our connections we are able to offer you an unforgettable cultural experience.More Details

  • Botanical Journeys

    We can fulfil your special requests and organise botanical journeys for individuals or groups, upon request including guidance by a botanical expert. Whether you prefer to encounter Himalayan flora in high altitude areas, in the jungle or in a greenhouse or nursery: You shall have enough time to search, find, marvel at and take photos of the local botanical diversity during your journey. We offer you our full service, including permits, transportation, accommodation, meals and many extras. More Details

  • River Cruises

    One of the world’s largest river-systems the Brahmaputra originates at Mt Kailash on the Tibetan plateau. It follows the foot of the northern Himalayas before crossing through India and Bangladesh where it merges with the Indian Ocean. Seamed by tiny villages, tea-gardens and virgin nature of National Parks you enjoy unforgettable experiences during a river cruise in Assam and/or Bangladesh. In Bangladesh you also undertake excursions on smaller boats through the magnificent world of mangroves. More Details

  • Mythical Journeys

    The Himalaya has attracted mystical seekers since millennia. Nowhere on earth are you as close to the sky as here. This is true both in regard to the very profane geographic height as well as in a figurative sense: Probably nowhere else in the world are there as many sacred venerable mountains, lakes, rivers, caves, temples and monasteries as in the Himalayan belt. There is hardly a place in these magnificent mountains that lacks a record of history worth of devotion. More Details

  • Pilgrimages

    You may have already immersed yourself into the Himalayan Buddhist culture and probably already know what the region has to offer. You would like to visit the many holy shrines and places of power such as caves, monasteries or holy pilgrimage-sites. With competent guidance you would like to meditate in holy places and/or receive teachings from experienced persons. Depending on your personal interest we are in a position to bring you to these places and/or connect you with qualified masters. More Details

  • Tea & Muse

    The tea-plant Camellia sinensis is one of humanity’s oldest cultivated plants. It was first mentioned in a Chinese legend more than 4700 years ago. Originating from China the tea-plant gave rise to the development of myths, ceremonies, whole cultures and wars. After Europe discovered the plant for itself in the 17th century its triumph across the globe began. Today tea is one of the world’s most frequently enjoyed beverages and Darjeeling-tea has become the epitome of tea. Without tea the entire eastern Himalaya would not be what it is today.

  • Himalayan Homestay

    We would like to take an active role in creating a bridge between you as the guest and suitable host families who will share their day-to-day lives with you. No other form of travel provides a better opportunity to experience your destination and its people as closely. The unique experiences you will gain are bound to enrich your life in many ways. More Details

  • Bicycle & MTB

    We are convinced that in large parts of the Himalaya trekking will be replaced with biking. Through continuous road-constructions more remote areas are being developed rendering themselves as unattractive; yet they offer new perspectives to the biker. Many of these remote roads are (still!) hardly frequented by motor-vehicles and guarantee contact with the inhabitants – a privilege that was earlier reserved exclusively to trekkers. More Details
