Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Himalayan tours to Bhutan, Tibet and Nepal

Environment

Our well trained guides are also very aware about the fragile state of the environment and are aware of proper rubbish management. They always explain about the fragility of the environment and rubbish management to the trekkers and advise them to dispose of their rubbish in proper places and take the non recyclable rubbish away with them. These kinds of activities always support nature.

Our company donates some reasonable funds to the different NGO/ local communities who are working in the environmental sector locally. Those NGO/ local communities help to maintain the trekking trail and running different kinds of environmental awareness programs within the local community. These kinds of programs have helped the local fragile ecosystem to remain unexploited and to maintain greenery in the surrounding area.

Our tour guides are also aware about Responsible Tourism and minimizing the impacts on nature; for example: Trash rubbish pits, purifying drinking water, litter removal, use of kerosene fuel for cooking rather than fire-wood, Use of local hotels/Guest houses.

Community

We are very aware about the environment and using local resources. Use of local resources help generate employment. We always use local people for all kinds of work. This work helps local people to earn their living with a good income. Thus, tourism enhances the standards of living of people from the area and the whole nation, as well as reducing poverty. Use of locally available vegetables and different kind of souvenirs also help people to be self employed. For example, due to tourism, the annual income of people from the Khumbu region and other tourist area has always been higher than the average for Nepal.

We support this by purchasing local products such as fresh fruits, handloom products, meat, drinks, and fresh vegetables and providing job opportunities and staying with local hotels/ Guest houses. These are often operated by local communities, which minimize impact on the environment - such as using kerosene/gas fuel instead of fire wood, manage garbage at proper sections etc.

We support the local school and health post , through donatations and educational materials to kids. We give support to local health posts by giving medical materials.

We use local man-power in the trip, such as local tour/ trekking guides. We hire local transport. It provides great opportunities for the local inhabitants to enhance their carrier & develop the community.

We always encourage local people to preserve their local culture and tradition by providing donations and other technical assistance as per the availability, for the continuation of their culture and indigenous knowledge. Thus, people can enjoy the differences within the community for the long term.

Each country had a memorable moment. Nepal - sunrise at the Himalays and sunset in the Jungle; Bhutan - the spectacular walk to the Tiger's Nest Monastery and our thoughtful, gentle and kind helpful guide; Tibet - Nothing can describe the sense of calm and harmony of the monasteries.

The trip to Tibet was worth it in a lot of ways while at the same time giving one lots to think about regarding the state of the country and it inhabitants. Bhutan was well worth the trip an experience in itself with your own guide and driver and a country that is unique in so many ways and one that one would like to return to. Read full review

Perhaps the most memorable day as the trek to The Tiger's Nest in Bhutan. The trek was tough, for me at least, but really enjoyable. Once we reached the Tiger's Nest the pain melted away and was replaced by equal measures of awe and exhilaration. It truly is wonderful! The way down is much easier! Read full review

It was fascinating to see all the different temples and hear the histories and about the religions of the three countries. Everyone we met was very friendly. Nepal is the easiest to get about with so many travelers there. It was more chaotic but we loved the energy of the place. Read full review
