With the help of our local Nepalese tour leaders and our Tibetan guides, our passengers really can gain firsthand insight into the Nepal and Tibet they are travelling through and benefit from their knowledge on places to eat and stay which best support the local people.
The Kathmandu Environmental Education project (KEEP), is a very local and interesting Nepalese NGO that groups can organise to visit with their Nepalese tour leader. It offers training and courses on nature conservation to Nepalese people, basic English to trekking guides, first aid and eco trekking workshops. It has a part to play in the conservation of Nepalís ecology and culture, and we are happy to give support to this project.
While in Tibet, many of our passengers take up the option of visiting the Braille without Borders centre in Lhasa and view it as a highlight of their trip. Tibet has one of the highest incidences of blindness in the world and the centre provides a school for children and produces educational materials and vocational training programs, with the aim of integration and acceptance of the blind into the community. You can go and listen to the stories of those who attend the school or perhaps organise a massage from one the graduates of its vocational massage courses.
This company started in 1989 with a passion to get travellers off the beaten track. It was started by best friends who wanted to develop a style of travel that was all together different; wanting travellers to become a part of a country - and not just tourists looking in. Wanting them to have fun, meet people, learn things, explore, and do stuff they could never do at home, to travel by anything and everything, and stay anywhere and everywhere! Fast forward two decades and they now travel to more than 110 countries and offers over 800 itineraries however their philosophy on travel is unchanged. Their core purpose is to enrich people's lives by creating unique, interactive travel experiences. Providing fun, affordable and sustainable travel adventures that are beneficial to local communities.
You can trust responsibletravel.com reviews because, unlike many other schemes, reviews can ONLY be written by people who we have verified have been on the holidays. In addition, we don't run these holidays ourselves - our only interest is giving you the best independent advice.
