Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Gokyo Everest trek in Nepal

Environment

Our guide will give a briefing about Responsible Tourism and how to best minimize the impact on nature, for example: Dispose of all waste in a rubbish pit, purify drinking water, proper litter removal, using kerosene fuel for cooking rather than fire-wood, use of local tea houses/ local camping sites.

Provide information on how to preserve the environment, for examples: Do not litter everywhere, dispose of rubish in proper places like rubbish boxes, establish fire pits in camping treks/tours, if possible provide food wastage to domestic animals. Pay a small extra amount to Porters to bring back non disposable things by duffel. Avoid bathing or washing clothes in streams, etc.

On this tour we stay with local tea houses/ lodges, operated by local communities in the hilly regions which minimize impact on the environment by using kerosene/gas fuel instead of fire wood, and managing garbage properly.

Community

Tourism helps to generate income for the local community. For example: By purchasing local products such as fresh fruits, handloom products, meat, drinks, and fresh vegetables and providing job opportunities etc.

You will be staying with local tea houses/lodges operated by local communities in the hilly region which, minimize impact on the environment such as use kerosene/gas fuel instead of fire wood, manage garbage at proper section etc.

We support local schools and health posts, for example: donating funds and educational materials to kids, in relation to the condition of schools and students. Support to local health posts is given through donating medical materials.

We give support to Kvresthali Women society by providing a certain percentage of the amount of our income from this trip, to repair culvert bridge and for Goat farming, as well adult literacy for women.

We use well-trained and experienced local guides for this trip. We hire local porters with equipped clothes as per the types of trekking. Loads carried will be limited to 20-25 kg. All field staffs will be travelling insured.

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


Seeing the sun rise behind Everest at the top of Kalapathar.

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


I would recommend going to Gokyo as well as Kalapathar as it's much quieter with very few of the big groups going to Everest Base Camp. Also, because my guide was flexible, we managed to avoid the groups quite a lot of the time even on the EBC route. The views from Gokyo Ri were also stunning.

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


I feel that it benefited local people. I was also happy to see that the company
organised a rescue team following the earthquakes.

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


I loved the trek and am so glad I did it. I would also highly recommend the company. The organisers in Kathmandu were really welcoming, I had a great guide (Ale) who went out of his way to be helpful, all of the lodges had a nice atmosphere, lovely staff and good food. There were no hidden extras and a generous allowance for food and tea (I drank lots of tea) so I paid for very little while I was there. Great memories.
