We share two passions: Being in the outdoors and the interest in Chinese language and culture. The joy of Chinese guests experiencing our Swiss mountains inspired us to found Mount Angel Tours. With this young company we present a plattform for the exchange of touristic expertise between Switzerland and China. The name refers to Engelberg (Angel Mountain) the most famous destination of our home Obwalden.

Shortly after Elisabeth joined in and pushed the idea to the final founding of the company Mount Angel Tours GmbH on May, 8th 2017. Truly a dream company for both of us!
