Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

Protecting Bhutan’s natural resources is one of our four pillars of sustainability, which underpin everything we do. 100% of the profits of this trip go back into sustaining the Trail and protecting it for years to come. On the days where travelers are walking on the sections of the Trans Bhutan Trail, we have worked with the Department of Forestry Royal Society for the Protection of Nature and Bhutan for Life Foundation to ensure this trip continues to protect the environment. We also plant a tree for each international guest that books with us.

All of the accommodations on this trip are 5* with an emphasis on sustainability. Gangtey Lodge plants 100 trees each year as part of their environmental policy and Amankora uses kitchen gardens to source a lot of their produce. You will also enjoy a lunch on day two in a traditional farmhouse. Again, the produce served is organically grown and on the premises.

People

Community is at the heart of what we do. During this trip there will be several experiences where you will interact with the local communities and by doing this, we can continue to support them. For example, whilst enjoying lunch at the traditional farmhouses you will be able to interact with your hosts and learn about their way of life. You will also be accompanied by a local guide throughout this trip. The five star hotels we use also employ locally and from within Bhutan, meaning skill development is kept within the region.

As with all of our trips, 100% of the profit that is made from them goes directly back into the communities helping keep the Trans Bhutan Trail sustainable. Through this we can employ a number of Trail Stewards and ambassadors who keep the Trail maintained and run unique experiences for our travelers. As well as the Trail Stewards, we also employ a head office team in Bhutan who manage the operations as well as domestic marketing.
