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.
PlanetOur 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.
PeopleWe are very aware about the environment and using local resources. Using of local resources help to generate employment. We always use the local people for different kinds of work. 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.
