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
Our well trained guides are also very aware about the fragility of the environment and rubbish management. They always explain about the fragility of the environment and rubbish management to the trekkers and advise them to dump their rubbish in proper places and take the non recyclable rubbish with them. 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 programmes within the local community. These programmes have helped to reduce exploitation of the local fragile ecosystem and to maintain greenery in the surrounding area.

Our tour guides are also aware about Responsible Tourism and minimise the impact on nature for example: Trash things in rubbish pit, purify drinking water, do not pick up plan on the way, litter removal, use kerosene fuel for cooking rather than fire-wood, use local hotels & guest houses.

These kinds of work help local people to earn their living with a good income. Tourism enhances the living standard of people from the area and the whole nation and reduces poverty. Using of locally available vegetables, other foodstuffs and different kind of souvenirs also help people to be self employed. For example, due to tourism the annual income of people from Khumbu region and other touristy areas has always been higher than the normal people of Nepal.
