Nepal travel expert Dr. Antonia Neubauer will be listed in the magazine’s new Travel Specialists Finder, available to travelers starting in June
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. – This June, Conde Nast Traveler Magazine is rolling out a new website tool to help travelers connect with dedicated travel specialists who can “pull off the impossible and spare you the logistics”. Conde Nast Traveler travel experts must possess the utmost knowledge, understanding and experience in select destinations to make it as a Top Travel Specialist. Dr. Antonia Neubauer, founder of award-winning experiential tour company Myths and Mountains, is proud to hold her place as the Top Travel Specialist for Nepal, a position she has held since 2011.
Conde Nast Traveler’s new finder tool will allow travelers to locate the destination specialist they’re seeking with greater ease than before. The tool will be launched in conjunction with Traveler’s June issue, which contains stories from travel specialists and anecdotes from clients.
Given the recent events in Nepal, Dr. Neubauer knows many travelers have questions about touring in that part of Asia. She hopes the public and media understand the importance of disaster relief efforts as well as the continuation of travel to the area.
“I fell in love with Nepal and its people on my first trip there in 1984,” Neubauer said. “Nepal tourism is a hallmark of Myths and Mountains, and I plan to continue taking travelers there now. Next to foreign aid, Nepal tourism is the largest source of revenue for the country. One way to help them is to go and visit.”
Read Dr. Neubauer’s “Nepal Earthquakes and Tourism” blog post for more information about Nepal, it’s people and how you can help rebuild the country through travel.
More than 30 years of experience traveling in Nepal, knowing the language, and having numerous personal connections in country gives Dr. Neubauer and Myths and Mountains a huge advantage over other tour operators. Myths and Mountains provides private, intimate experiences with local cultures – dinners with key people in Nepali society, staying in private homes, engaging in philanthropic projects, visiting villages not on tourist routes, having an audience with a living “virgin goddess” – that no other operator can offer.
