Description of Bhutan walking vacations
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetThe environment has always been our major concern. We try our best to implement the policy of environmental conservation on every service and tour.
As a company, we have also conducted various plantation and river cleansing campaigns, in order to contribute to environmental conservation but we are also keen to adhere to sustainability principles whilst on tour. Explanations are given during any trekking tours of how to conserve scarce fuel resources, as well as reducing litter & waste production (for example by not ordering numerous different items from trekking lodge menus, and by treating water rather than buying numerous mineral water bottles).
In the field, our guides, porters and clients are all oriented in responsible travel. A zero litter policy is in place so that it minimizes wastage in the region.
We have recycling information booklets we provide to every client on arrival wherever possible. We do not produce a glossy brochure, concentrating on a comprehensive website, and providing as much information to our travelers as possible electronically, reducing the use of paper and inks.
PeopleOur Company operates as such that the journeys ensure benefits to the local people and their surrounding as much as possible and any potential negative impacts at the destinations are minimized. We are dedicated to giving something back to the local community.
We understand and appreciate the hard work the guides and porters perform. Therefore we treat and obey the Guide and Porter Policy to ensure the conditions for our guides and porters are of a humane standard. We work towards eliminating avoidable illness, injury and death.
All our staff are from local communities. Our guides are English speaking and have years of experience as they live locally. Each guide comes fully equipped and supported by us, having obtained training in the related tourism sectors including Department of Tourism, Guide Association of Bhutan and Association of Bhutanese Tour Operators.
We also organize a small donation foundation where the travelers can also help the locals by supporting one student by giving educational materials such as pencils, crayons, books and paper etc.
