Mount Angel Tours
Connecting Mountains
Between China And Switzerland

Meet MAT GmbH:

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.
