Mini Annapurna circut trek in Nepal

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

Activity:
Few vacations have as little detrimental impact on the environment and local residents as a trekking trip. It is a low impact activity requiring comparatively little resources to support. Erosion on and adjacent to popular paths is a growing problem and our trip leaders encourage clients not to stray from paths to minimise this. We work with a strict ‘leave no trace’ policy, meaning we have respect for wildlife and the landscape, separate rubbish and take all burnable waste back to Kathmandu. We also ask that clients consider using biodegradable toiletries and shower at lodges where electricity or solar power is used for hot water.

UK Office:
It all starts at home so we have first worked at reducing our carbon footprint in our UK Offices. Through energy conservation measures and recycling policies, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We support various projects all over the world to try and give something back to the places we visit.

Community

Accommodation and Meals:
We spend 4 nights in standard hotels and 11 nights in locally owned teahouses. Most of the teahouses are owned by families who are from the Annapurna region. This is an easy way to make sure a decent portion of the trip cost and the money you spend on meals in the teahouses goes directly back to the community. Breakfasts are included and will usually consist of something simple, locally sourced and carb-heavy for energy, like porridge and toast. Where meals aren’t included, clients can support local lodges by trying some authentic cuisine, rather than imported meals. Try Nepalese dumplings (Momos) or lentils and spicy curry (Dal Bhat).

Local Craft and Culture:
This trip is packed with colourful Nepalese and Tibetan culture and opportunities to immerse yourself in a range of religious, historical and natural sites. Highlights include stopping at several small villages along the way (Dharapani, Bagarchap, Pisang, Manang, Muktinath and many more). Pokhara’s traditional bazaar, temples and lakes are another cultural favourite; as are the temples in Kathmandu. In Kathmandu, Pokhara and some of the villages we visit, there will be traditional and handcrafted souvenirs available for purchase. Buying handmade jewelry, painted masks and puppets, prayer wheels, handwoven bags and tapestries all helps to support small vendors and their craft.

Charity:
After organising tours to the Himalayas for over 40 years, we have developed many long lasting partnerships with our operators and leaders as well as some of the local communities we visit. We seek ways to give something back and we usually help with small-scale practical projects that can help local communities and their environment, whilst giving the maximum possible long-term economic benefit. Together with our local leaders we manage all our own projects and over the years we have helped build schools and a children’s home. We have built water tanks and provide water pipe for villages and have helped with hydro electric projects. We have sponsored and installed more than 130 smokeless stoves and 50 solar cookers. On this trip we have the chance to visit the Tree Nursery in Braga, which was founded in order to combat deforestation in the area.

Group Size:
This small group tour has a maximum of 16 participants, meaning that we have a low impact on the environments and communities we visit and are able to ensure that we do not disrupt or lead to the displacement of local people. The small number also allows us to stay in unique, family-run hotels that cannot benefit from coach tours and other mass tourism due to their limited sizes.
