Traveling with a local operator

This vacation is operated by a company based in the vacation destination and they will be able to provide expert local knowledge. They will be able to tailor make your vacation to suit your requirements not only concerning the dates of travel but also typically the standard of accommodation, and thus price. It is rare for local operators to be able to help with the booking of your flights.

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.

Our trekking company is wholly committed to responsible tourism. On our treks & tours, tourism helps improve the standard of living for the local people by generating income for the local community through purchasing of local products such as fresh fruits, handloom products, meat, drinks, and fresh vegetables and providing job opportunities.

We employ well-trained & experienced local tour guides. Our guides will give a briefing about responsible tourism e.g. rubbish disposal, giving food scraps to domestic animals, paying the porters to carry out trash, using a fire pit when camping, not picking flowers, using kerosene instead of firewood, avoiding bathing/washing clothes in streams, using local tea houses or camping sites. In addition the small group size of 4-10 people helps to minimise the impact on the environment.

On this tour, we stay at hotel / Jungle Resort operated by local communities such as 3* hotel or similar in city areas and Island Jungle Resort or similar in Chitwan Park. The resort manages garbage properly; minimize using fire-wood, arrangement comfort accommodation for visitors.

Our trekking company supports a local school & health post by financial donations and educational and medical materials.

We also support the Kvresthali Women society with financial donations which provides goat farming and adult literacy for women. On this trip, our guests will have the opportunity to give donations to these causes, and visit the Kavresthali Women Society to observe their activities.

In terms of excitement (and having never done it before) the White Water Rafting was excellent and potentially a new hobby. The stay at Sarangkot was most peaceful and the view of the mountain range at 5.30am in the morning was quite breath taking. Pokhara was a lovely place to stay with an abundance of bars and restaurants. Sunsets at Chitwan was another highlight. Read full review

The most memorable part was without a doubt Chitwan National Park! Our guides Krishna and Prakash were amazing! With their careful guiding we were able to see rhinos, crocodiles, deer, wild boar, bison, monkies and many species of birds! Sunset over the river was spectacular and without the light pollution of the city we were able to see hundreds of stars. Read full review

The whole trip was amazing. We covered a range of environments within Nepal - bustling Kathmandu, the exotic Chitwan jungle resort, Pokhara and the beautiful (and sometimes scary) mountain roads in between. Read full review
