Responsible tourism: Annapurna trekking holiday in Nepal

Environment

We employ well-trained & experienced local guides and hire local porters whose load limit is 20-25kg. 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.

The Himalaya, abode of eternal snow and ice, an incomparably gigantic landscape garden, laid out by Mother Nature. Dense forests of mighty trees and climbers, shade loving plants, rocks garden, emerald-green grassy meadows studded literally with germs of multicolored flowers, cool crystal clears, cascades and waterfalls

We can not imagine of any lives without nature and environment. The multicultural people can be flourishing in the region under the sound environments. So it becomes a great responsibility for anyone to minimize negative impact on natural environments and also need to respect local customs and religious beliefs.

Community

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.

On this trek, we stay at local lodges/tea-houses operated by local people such as Himalayan Panorama lodge, Mountain views lodge, Panorama lodge These lodges manage garbage proper section, Use Gas for cooking and solar energy facilitated.

Our trekking company supports a local school & health post by financial donations and educational and medical materials. We also support the Kavresthali 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 Annapurna conservation project to explore the activities of environment protection system in this region. This project plays vital role to protect environment and development community of this region. Visitor can share the moment with project, how is moving ahead for the preservation of nature and culture in this region. Visit Ghorepani School, visitors may support by contributing educational materials such as copies, art books, pencils, and sports goods etc.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Reaching Ghorepani after walking up 3000 steps and then hiking further uphill afterwards. We saw the peak of Dulagiri peeking out over the tops of the clouds. Manakamana organized excellent guides so I felt safe at all times.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


It's a fantastic experience that I highly recommend. Trekking in the Himalayas has been one of the most rewarding holiday experiences that I've done. It was tough, but worth it. Eat plenty of gurung bread and try the Nepalese rum!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Staying in the tea houses in the Himalayas provides vital business to the areas. Locals can earn a living from trekkers staying in the tea houses. Buying goods and services there helps to support the local economy. Locals have all said that tourism has been affected by the earthquake so it's good to know that I can help in a small way towards recovery.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Fantastic experience. I would highly recommend this company for trekking tours in Nepal.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


This trek was the first of two tours I booked. Walking to Annapurna Base camp was one of the most physically strenuous and rewarding things I have
ever done. I guess the most memorable part was getting to the top! Also chatting with all the locals and tourists I met along the way. I was alone with a guide and porter, and they took excellent care of me.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Pack light! Only take what you need, and you always need less than you think.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


Definitely. Everything was kept local, and the importance of reducing waste was
observed.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Fantastic. Really really great. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
