Responsible Travel

HOW YOU CAN MAKE RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL TO NEPAL ?

Responsible travel is simply defined as when you travel to the new places you need to be Environmentally, socially, and culturally aware and understanding your effect on the place you visit and trying to make a positive impact on those host communities and areas. The term Responsible Travel has significant importance throughout the world over time & to Nepal as well. Nepal is very prone to climate change and the negative tourism carbon footprint can damage the entire ecosystem of Agriculture dependent countries which is more than 80%. There is a greater role of travelers to be a responsible tourist while visiting Nepal from the beginning of how you book your holidays to which types of travel companies you are booking your next trip whether it’s a responsible tour operator or not? We are not marketing ‘Responsible Tourism’ for the cash revenue, it’s the heart of ethical business everything we do, from designing our tours to choosing our sustainable tourism destination, giving jobs to Local Guides and supporting economically to rural guesthouses and community homestays, also communicating our travelers & Guides about to travel responsibly is the main theme of our Tour operation.

HOW WE SUPPORT RESPONSIBLE TOURISM FROM OUR TRIPS IN NEPAL ?

  • All our tours are designed to minimize negative impacts on the environment. That’s why we limit our group tours to a maximum of 10 peoples & focus on privates trips. All our trips are multi-day hiking in rural areas and just for a few hours, we may need transportation at that time we use public transport where available. If there is no public vehicle possible we use private vehicles just for a few trips with good condition of emission.
  • We limit the usage of single-use plastic junk products and encourage customers to buy local organic fruits & vegetables while on their trip to support the local economy. From the beginning when you book the trip we will inform our customers sending emails about traveling responsibly in Nepal and ask them to bring reusable water bottles and shopping bags and tell guides & accommodation suppliers to offer plastic straw-free drinks.
  • On our tours, you won’t be able to purchase any products made from endangered flora and fauna, and you’ll be discouraged to do so by your guide if they’re offered for sale in the markets.
  • We limit usage of single-use plastic and will inform you about recycling policies and encourage you to use reusable water bottles and to say no to straws.
