Description of Mustang mountain biking vacation in Nepal
2021: 9 Dec
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.
PlanetThis trip is awesome to avoid jeep rides and you don't pollute the environment by using jeeps or cars that much.
In this area, it is very important not to litter as nobody cleans it on a daily basis so your team leader will teach you how to utilize garbage properly. We ask not to bring anything in plastic: bags, snacks, shampoo or etc. Let's keep our land and water plastic-free.
This area is very remote and the only source to charge your devices is solar pannel.
We will stay in homestays with locals who are trying to implement eco-friendly innovations that will comfort their life and environment with the right balance: portable gas cookers, solar system to heat water, locally-grown food.
The water is too precious here, remember about it when you brush your teeth or taking showers.
Clean waters are what this land can be proud of and you can easily drink from streams and rivers using purifying tablets instead of buying mineral waters in bottles.
PeopleWe will meet local ethnic communities on our way each time and people there are quite conservative. Dress properly, respect customs and traditions, learn about them a little bit in advance, greet locals on your way, smile and be open to everything new. Some things and traditions are really blow-minding - don't overreact and don't try to change something in people's daily lifestyle. The best is to immerse in it, join for a celebration or a festival, drink a tea, speak to them, take off shoes in temples and houses where needed, don't take photos if there is a sign - this is a holy land for Buddhist people.
Support local shops and restaurants - buy fruits and veggies, local delicacies, share with everyone, play football with children, learn about local projects and how you can help them. Donate to local organizations and keep in touch after you return home.
Be thankful to our team members and we appreciate tips afterwards to them as tourism is the only source for locals to make money for life and support their families.
