Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks P. Ltd. has been serving Nepal’s tourism industry since 2007. Its office is located in Kathmandu- Thamel precisely- the capital city of Nepal.
Previously, Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks P. Ltd. existed under the name ‘Swiss Nepal Family Trekking & Expedition’. It seemed only appropriate to name the new company after Buddha, who was born in Nepal. Buddhism has been the most valuable gift Nepal has given to the world, as it embodies the message of peace, harmony and enlightenment.
Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks is currently run by the same team of trekking and tour guides who have a proven track record. Mr. Kishan Gurung is the founder of the company. Our ethnically diverse field guides and office staff are competitive, highly qualified, friendly and trustworthy.
Because of our extensive and reliable local network, our operation currently focuses on four Himalayan countries in South Asia: Nepal, Bhutan, Tibet and India. We offer all travel related services under one roof, be it mountaineering, trekking, rafting, jungle safari, romantic vacations or Buddhist pilgrimage tours, bird watching, nature exploration and so on. Air tickets, bus and train travel and private vehicle hire are also arranged by us upon request or as part of a package program.
Our programs are designed based on our in-depth knowledge about local culture and attractions as well as regulations. We offer both customized itineraries and popular packages depending upon your choice. So whether you are travelling with kids or older citizens or you are a solo traveller, we make it fit easily to your requirements.
Remember, we are just a click away. Get in touch with our team today to book with us.

At Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks, we practice sustainable tourism. Every program we operate has been based on three principles of sustainable or ecotourism: conserving the environment, promoting local culture and contributing to the economy.
This is exactly why we tend to promote ethnic and gender diversity in our workplace, provide professional training to improve the performance of our staff, follow ethical and environmental principles when visiting a host destination, promoting local culture and employment and focusing on quality tourism rather than quantity.
We take utmost care when visiting villages, natural protected areas and parks, mountains and glaciers, wetland areas etc. We also make sure that our staff, especially our guides are well trained and well paid and well insured for their work.
Save the Tree, Save the Environment
Global Warming and Climate Change are two burning issues in the global tourism industry. We firmly follow the motto “Save the Tree, Save the Environment”. We discourage our clients not to use plastics during trips, dispose of garbage at proper places, use solar powered showers in trekking areas and refrain from polluting rivers. We also actively participate in local and national awareness building programs about preserving the environment with national and international NGOs and community groups.
Being a responsible travel company, we are a member of Trekking Agencies’ Association of Nepal, Kathmandu Environmental Education Project, Village Tourism Promotion Forum, Nepal Mountaineering Association and Sustainable Tourism Unit (Nepal Tourism Board).
