Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Annapurna base camp trek, Nepal

Environment

We have always believed in tourism that aims to have a low impact on the natural environment and local culture, generating income and employment for local people and promoting the conservation of local ecosystems. This is responsible tourism which is both ecologically and culturally sensitive. The locals have major roles to play in sustainable tourism, participating actively and taking responsibility in the industry. We encourage locals to sell local handicrafts or simply talk with tourists to give them an authentic image of the local culture.

Our guide will provide information on how to protect the environment e.g. do not drop litter, dispose of garbage in proper places like garbage boxes, establish fire point in camping treks/tours, if possible give food wastage to domestic animals. Pay a small extra amount to porters to bring back non-disposable items by duffel. Avoid bathing or washing clothes in streams etc. We take only small groups with a maximum of 16 people help to minimise our impact on the environment.

During this trek, trekkers will have the opportunity to give donations to the Annapurna conservation project which plays a vital role in environmental protection and community development in the Annapurna Area. The Annapurna Conservation Area supports high diversity of flora and fauna species. The area harbours rare and endangered wildlife species such as the Snow leopard, Musk deer, Tibetan argali, Impeyan pheasant and Tragopan pheasant. Annapurna conservation project (ACA) provides a large protected area with the entire habitat gradient from sub tropical Sal forests to perennial snow in which to maintain the biodiversity and integrity of the central Himalayas.

Community

We try to maximise our contribution to the local community by hiring local familiar guide and porters with knowledge about local culture. We encourage all our clients to hire porters to give local people employment, this is a great way of directing money straight back into the local economy. Our porters are not allowed to carry more than 25kg. In this trek we stay at local lodges/teahouses operated by local people. All lodges/teahouses minimise the impact on the environment by using kerosene/gas fuel instead of fire wood.

We are in partnership with registered charity organisation “Chhahari Group Nepal”, The organisation has been serving in Nepalese society since 2001. Most projects funded by them directly benefit the local community that has been affected by natural or political issues. Many other projects directly or indirectly benefit our citizens, e.g. orphanage home, community school, health camp, scholarship program etc. A current project involves helping to run a free community school for very poor families' children who can’t afford to send their kids to school.
