Hot of the press: the new “Himalaya 2017”. NHB celebrates two anniversaries with this year’s calendar sale - on the one hand the twentieth edition of the calendar, on the other hand the foundation of the aid organisation a quarter of a century ago.

The celebrated mountaineers Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and her husband Ralf Dujmovits as well as the extreme climber Hans Kammerlander opened again – as they have been doing for many years now - their photo archives for the present edition of “Himalaya 2017”. This cannot be taken as a matter of course but needs extra mentioning and thanks, as it lifts the calendar on a special level of quality.

Considering today’s run of 10,000 printed calendars, the beginnings of this extraordinary success story can be called modest. In 1997 the NHB started with 50 DIY-calendars featured by self-taken photos. The calendar is sold here on this homepage (ORDER A CALENDAR) or at several different local shops in Beilngries and Regensburg. 

The calendar is 43.5 x 40.5 cm and consists of one cover, one sheet for each month and one for additional information. The pictures show fascinating impressions of the wonderful landscape, the culture and the people in the Himalaya region. The calendar which costs 17 Euro interests people not only from nearly every single European country but also people from all over the world. Chile, Dubai, Australia, Vatican City, Georgia and Canada are countries on our distribution list. Individuals as well as companies who buy a greater number of calendars for their costumers as a give-away order NHB-calendars. Thanks to Werner Eisenhofer, who manages the distribution and the mail-order.

The outcome of the sale is used for the rehabilitation and reconstruction of schools and other buildings after the earthquake, which will cost more than 900,000 Euro. The first steps have already been taken and repair work at some buildings are about to be finished. At the same time NHB is responsible for the daily running costs of institutions like the Shaligram children’s home or Siddhi Memorial Hospital.
