Myths and Mountains founder honored as Top Travel Specialist

LAKE TAHOE, NEV – January 11, 2012 – Experiential tour operator Myths and Mountains is proud to announce Founder and President Toni Neubauer has been recognized as Condé Nast Traveler’s Top Travel Specialist for Nepal. This honor establishes Neubauer as not only the premiere travel specialist for the country of Nepal, but as one of the top travel professionals on the planet.

“When you love a country and work hard to share this love with travelers to Nepal and the local people in the country, recognition by an organization as important as Condé Nast is extraordinary meaningful,” Neubauer said of the honor.

Neubauer has spent much of the last 27 years traveling all over Nepal, speaks the language, and has handled everything from documentaries to weddings.  Her experiences there inspired her to found Rural Education and Development, or READ Global in Nepal back in 1991 as the non-profit arm of Myths and Mountains. Now an independent 501c3 organization based in San Francisco,  READ builds Community Library Resource Centers, seeds local businesses to fully sustain and support the centers, and links them with organizations providing literacy, health/HIV, microcredit, women's empowerment and other needed services  in rural communities across Nepal, Bhutan and India. The organization has built approximately 50 centers in Nepal, serving more than a million people.

“Myths and Mountains' staff have tremendous respect for the people and culture of Nepal and the other countries in which they work.  We pride ourselves  on truly knowing the countries in which we work,” Neubauer said. “And in giving something back to the local people in these countries.”
