Why Travel with Us

Home » About Us » Why Travel with Us

What’s in our Name?

Our name reflects the core of our DNA- WE HELP YOU CREATE LIFELONG MEMORIES AND FRIENDSHIP in the lap of the Himalayas.

Our name was inspired by the story of two travellers who our founder met in 2003, a Yak herder from Thangshyap Village in Langtang Valley and an Italian man who met 35 years ago during a trek in Langtang. Both with different language and culture found very difficult to communicate yet have developed such a bond that each year, rain hail or shine, the Italian man treks to Langtang Valley to enjoy Yak herder’s company.

Our aim to introduce Nepal’s magnificent peaks, glacial valleys, and its amazing people to the world where you can start building lifelong bond and friendship, we are your Travel Buddy for Nepal.
