The Story of Two Brothers
Having met in Nepal in the mid 1980`s, founding partners Chhiring Dorje and Carl-Magnus Fossum have a relationship that spans more than 30 years. And counting.
Carl-Magnus`s father worked as a pilot for the UN, flying all over the Himalayas in a Twin Otter. Tserings family was involved in antiques and carpets when our two families first met.
This was the start of a very special relationship for both families, and has led to the mash-up of styles that creates this unique little travel company.
