1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?
The beautiful Himalayan scenery and the friendliness of fellow trekkers and guides.
2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?
Make sure you have thick clothes for the day at Base Camp, appropriate medicine for Acute Mountain Sickness, and bring lots of energy snacks.
3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?
Yes, the trek made a point of minimal environmental impact and had a good reputation as a fair employer for guides and porters.
4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetOur small groups (maximum of 16 people) have a minimal impact on the Himalayas' fragile environment as we explore predominantly on foot. All tour guides are responsible for ensuring that the guests understand the nature of the environment that they are in and minimise the impact that they may have. We stay in tea houses owned by local people along the way, collect and dispose of all litter, boil all drinking water instead of using bottled water, and use responsible cooking fuels (kerosene) instead of wood. Our porters in Nepal are equipped with suitable clothing and footwear for the type of trek they are about to work on, and this is recorded at the start of the trek. In addition the actual size and /or awkwardness (e.g. fluids, mattresses etc.) of the load to be carried, as well its weight is assessed prior to porters setting off on trek, ensuring that only comfortable loads are allocated.
Charity Partnerships: As a company we support The Travel Foundation, a UK charity that has been established to promote responsible travel practises throughout the whole of the travel industry. We also work with a number of charity partners who work in the destinations that we visit; including Friends of Conservation and Born Free Foundation. We partner with many small grassroots projects throughout the destinations that we visit - they all share our responsible vision.
Our Foundation: We’ve highlighted a few of the ways in which we offer our support, financially or otherwise, and now you can, too. We have set up our own foundation, which will administer funds donated by you. A small donation of £1 per person will be taken when booking a vacation and that money will be put to good use by one of our carefully selected projects. If you don’t want to make the donation, just tell us when you book.
PeopleOn this trip: Our policy of staying in locally owned accommodation, having local guides and group leaders and using transport owned and operated by local people wherever possible is continued in Nepal.
Our Responsible Travel Code: Being Responsible is at the heart of everything our company does - full details of our code can be found on our website. The local supplier for this trip will promote our responsible travel code throughout your adventure. You will also receive specific information on this trip’s responsibility in your trip notes.
