walk with me

I hold the space, build the bridges, organize all logistics

so you can fully let go. into the simplicity of life, the abundance of the elements, the beauty of nature, and the depth of what you experience on your way.

  • I have been trekking in the himalayas since my early childhood, on remote treks with my parents & siblings, later with friends, and on many solo-tours.
  • born and raised in nepal, this is where I connect to my roots. I build bridges between cultures, speak fluent nepali and move in a rich network of personal connections.
  • as a traveler of mountain spaces I enjoy the simplicity. the experience of carrying all I truly need within my 40 l backpack. all else falls away and I become the equal part of nature I originally was born to be.
  • on the basis of my training in alternative healing, I continuously develop my senses and sensitivity, to deepen my understanding of the forces of energy that flow through all of nature, and mould and connect us human beings.
  • as a geographer I enjoy the birds eye view, from which I look out onto the world, to understand its relations and interdepencencies – between the underlying geology, the vegetation that grows, the culture and economy that develops on its ground, and the ecological context that connects it all.
  • as firewoman I have experienced the significance in holding ritual spaces as a means to support transformative processes in individuals and groups.
  • as a member of the national athletes team in orienteering I spent many rich hours navigating europe’s forests and mountains with map and compass.
  • as a runner of alpine marathons I followed my urge to reach great heights – exploring my physical boundaries – by which I gradually came to understand also the value of slowing down and being still.

in connecting with the elements, I refuel, regenerate and empower my potential, remembering my connection, the being a part of this great divine nature.

in the mountains I find insight, inspiration & clarity

I wish to bring global-minded individuals to himalayan power places. you, as a conscious mind who seeks to experience and benefit from a time out of your daily life. to reflect and find answers to your relevant life questions. to heighten your awareness on your own inner spaces as well as the outside spaces you travel, and to bring this awareness out into the world.
