Description of Ganesh Himal camping trek in Nepal
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.
PlanetWe know our wildlife, are committed to conserving it and encourage guests to follow our lead. This is a holy and sacred territory for many pilgrimages and we have to respect it, keep it clean and not to bring any harm to the environment. We'll bring our tents, food, all the equipment and will carry all out not to leave any traces behind us.
We humbly ask you to avoid any use of plastic on this trek and don't accept plastic bags from locals when you'll buy anything. Bring your BPA-free bottle to refill it with water on your way instead of buying bottled mineral water. Nepal is rich on pure spring waters that are safe for drinking, use of water purifiers is the best alternative.
All our suppliers match our environmental values as before the trek we explain our ideas and beliefs, how to reduce the bad influence on the environment by using electric stoves or gas for cooking instead of woodfire, reduce meat meals in menus, selling products wrapped in plastic and not settling proper trash bins in lodges. Sometimes we need the patience to explain the consequences of our actions. It takes time to set the eco-friendly movement in Nepal
It's a full trekking vacation this means it is a low carbon form of transport.
PeopleThis area is not touristic and not developed that's why we are going to use guides, sherpas, cooks and porters to carry our food, tents and equipment. All the things you buy on your way like local snacks, veggies, fruits, tea, dairy gonna benefit locals and help them to support themselves and their families during the year. All members of the team are locals to were born and raised in that area. We train them during the year, provide them with all needed for the safe working conditions: cloths, insurance, equipment, salary, meals, accommodation.
It is highly encouraged tipping your guides, porters and drivers as, as we said before, this area is not developed and tourism is the only way for people to have some income and live whole year.
We'll stay some nights in tea houses run by locals as well and it is also encouraged to eat and drink in the same place where you gonna stay for a night.
We will learn about projects that support, educate and employ women in Nepal.
This area is also conservative with unique culture and traditions so dress in a respected manner, be open to trying new things, new food, new way of life, greet everyone you meet on your way, participate in celebrations and learn some Nepali, also you can teach a little of your language to locals to create an open and friendly atmosphere, to remove language barriers between nations.
