Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Nepal is a country which needs responsible tourism both from visitors and from locals too. Education and showing an example is a great start. Please don't bring any plastic with you (like traveling cosmetic kits, one-time use toothbrush, snacks, tissues, bags and etc) and don't accept plastic bags when you're buying something from locals. We need to start from small steps until we set a trend to be a plastic-free country. During the trek we carry all garbage out of conservation zone, our guides will explain you during our first meeting how to utilize and recycle.

Waters are pure clean here so you can refill your bottle safely or using water purifiers instead of buying mineral water in plastic bottles.

We ask you not to leave any food or leftovers behind you as wild animals can pick it up and get sick or become dependent on humans. Don't approach any wild animal or a bird, respect and keep silence, no need to whistle or scare them. This is their home and we are visitors.

We will be staying at homestays and tents where needed, all of them support eco-movement to protect the environment. You'll see solar panels everywhere that are used to heat the water, cook food, light the houses.

Imported food is not something you can find in Nepal which helps reduce the carbon footprint of food. Further to this, we recommend a mainly vegetarian diet during the trek as it is better for your health and needs less cooking thereby reducing the burning of fuel.

This is predominantly a walking trip and when we do need transport, we take public options keeping the carbon footprint of our travel as low as possible.

The Impacts of this Trip

We hire only local guides, sherpas, porters and drivers from the area where you trek to create more income for locals as not everyone can come to Kathmandu. We provide full training and support, salary, insurance, clothes, meals, accommodation during the trek. Tips in Nepal is not something you have to do but they are encouraged if you loved the hard work of your team, you've been taken care of, safe and sound. Tourism is the only way for locals to make money in one season for the whole year.

We encourage you to support locals and buy traditional delicacies, fruits, veggies, hot drinks, baked products, eat in local restaurants - it's a great way to discover for your self national food of Nepal.

We have also incorporated some workshops into the trip that educate and employ women in Nepal, which is a significant step here. You learn about the work, support the project/workshop and keep in touch, or even take a part in it.
