The Alaya Holidays Team
opens its doors and invites you into a natural and generous environment.
Discover the richness of people, of places, and the wealth within you.
For Alaya Holidays, travel is quickened by the heart’s impulse to break away from the norm. It is a personal and intimate process of stopping somewhere unfamiliar, so we can live the unknown. Being away from our protective shelters evinces vulnerability and sensitivity. This awareness opens onto self-discovery and transformation. These journeys always leave traces that can influence our life for a very long time.
Based in Kathmandu, Nepal, our travel agency has specialized, for several years, in creating trips where each participant receives particular attention.
To encounter the unpredictable, participate in daily routines with the local population, discover a culture, create with artisans, walk through inspiring magnificent landscapes, savour the silence, meet with monks or Brahmins, experience new cuisine, be a special guest of a ceremony (birth, marriage, annual feasts)…these too are all part of travelling with Alaya Holidays.
Our team is mindful of the people, the lifestyles and environment of the destinations we propose. For this reason, we have personally chosen our partnering countries. Together, we share the same goal of travel and hospitality : to evoke marvel in each being.
We rely upon the respect for all, for the local economic development, the balance between men and women, and for the education of children. This all-embracing respect is based on listening to the needs of the local people and have them be understood. We act in this manner, as it is essential that we support them by providing the necessary materials they require,––fabrics, products, medicines, and foods. It is our way to improve their daily lives while appreciating the essence of their origins, and to form lasting relationships.
