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.
Planet*We stay with local tea houses/ lodges operated by local communities in the hilly region which minimize the impact on the environment by using kerosene/gas fuel instead of fire wood, managing garbage disposal properly.
*Our guide will give a briefing about Responsible Tourism and how to minimize the impact on nature: trash disposal , purification of drinking water, not picking up flora or fauna on the way, litter removal, using kerosene fuel for cooking rather than fire-wood.
*We provide information on how to preserve the environment, for example: Do not leave trash and dispose it in appropriate places, or if possible provide food wastage to domestic animals. Pay a little extra to the porter to bring back non disposable trash by duffel. Avoid bathing or washing clothes in streams, etc.
*Due to this trip the living standards of local people are much better than before as they have far more job opportunities.
*The small group size of 4-10 people will minimize the impact on the environment.
* Previous experience is not needed. It is a great chance to share a moment with local people and enjoy traditional customs
People*Tourism generates income for the local community. For example: by purchasing local products such as fresh fruits, handloom products, meat, drinks, and fresh vegetables this provides job opportunities etc.
*This trek is based on local lodges/ hotels and resorts. For example, we stay in a trekking lodge and local peoples homes.
*On this trip volunteers will work in Kavresthali Village and the school to support locals and observe their activities.
* We support to local schools and health posts: to donate some amount of educational materials to kids as per seen the condition of school and students. It does by company and also as per tourist on this trip. Support to local health post by giving medical materials.
*We offer support to Kvresthali villgae and school by providing certain percent amount of income this trip, to rebuild home, school and goat farms as well as supporting reading and writing to improve adult literacy for women.
*We use local men-power for example: a well-trained and experienced local guide will be in the trip. Hire local porters with rental equipment according to the type of trek. The weight limit for equipment will be 20-25 kg. All field staff will be traveling insured.
