Before we go any further, I have to ask, where did you get the name Alpamayo? Based on our location at the foot of the alps in Obwalden, we really wanted to choose the name of a mountain for our company. But many of the local mountain names were unsuitable or already taken. Instead, we decided to take the name of a beautiful mountain in South America. We have a very strong connection with the region, both of us spent time there together doing NGO work on sanitation projects in Bolivia, before coming to Switzerland.
