This means all will be informed of the different ways in which you will be able to contribute to local economic development and conservation matters. During the tour we suggest tourist to carry their own drinking bottle and provide them with water dispenser. Besides, tourist are advised to get hot water supply from restaurants or hotels to minimize the plastic bottled, If in case needed plastic drinking bottle than we provide rubbish bags in vehicle so they can collect their own trash and we dispose of their rubbish in proper places. For the all the trip that we take only small group maximum of 12 peoples and provide new branded transport to minimize the impact on the environment. Our suppliers, staffs, tour guides are also aware about Responsible Tourism and minimizing the impacts on nature.
