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.
