The local travel agencies

The Nepalese travel company exhibits an especially close relationship to cultural diversity and to Nepal’s unique nature. It engages in many active measures to preserve these treasures while always guaranteeing a high level of quality.
Temba’s Nepal Trek is a local travel agency in Nepal that speaks German, among other languages. The agency is led by Temba from Nepal and Sabine from Germany, who have over 35 years of experience in trekking and tourism. Guests benefit from the Nepalese-German connection in the form of easier communication and knowledge about European culture, yet local prices and “priceless knowledge about the country.” The agency’s fair treatment of guides and porters deserves special attention since Temba himself was once a porter and guide and because sustainability plays an especially important role in the travel agency.
Lama Excursions was founded in 1973. From the beginning, Hauser Exkursionen has been Lama Excursions’ most important customer and supporter – almost something like a family business. Lama Excursions’ core competency is organizing all types of treks, from lodge trekking to expeditions and climbs.
