Responsible tourism: Everest high pass circuit trek

Environment

We are always aware of sustaining the natural beauty of the Everest region. Excess focus on tourism can only ruin the mountain environment and its surrounding ecosystem. More visitors' activity in the Everest region generates significant amounts of pollution in water, air and noise, which will ultimately pollute water and soil in surrounding areas through improper storage and disposal. Therefore, to avoid such environmental pollution, we strive to adopt proper a waste management system. Solid waste that is produced from food and beverage consumption is disposed properly since they are not easily degradable. Moreover, they break down slowly in the Himalayas. Certain types of waste, including pharmaceuticals, personal products, and cleaning products may contain dangerous chemicals that create the threat of glacial melt. For that reason we carry these harmful chemicals out of the region to protect the environment. Instead of using firewood for cooking during camping we use adapted gas or kerosene stoves to discourage deforestation and to maintain environmental balance. We leave no trace but only footprints during our trip.

Community

Our company is wholly Nepalese owned and operated and some of the team members of the company are from Solukhumbu indeed. Every guide who is allotted in the Everest Region is provided with insurance. Instead of hiring porters from Kathmandu, we hire them from Lukla to support local employment. Since a large number of trekkers and climbers who visit Everest region contribute to the local village economy we try to motivate our trekkers to aid the communities as well. We use locally operated lodges and tea houses rather than camping during the trek. However, some of the accommodations we use along the way are charity based lodges. The money we pay goes towards the educational and care expenses of the orphans and children who are disabled in that area. This in turn, helps the local community as well. Locally prepared meals, herbal teas and herbal products are manufactured in the area and available to clients which are extremely beneficial to our health are highly recommended to the trekkers to maintain stamina throughout the trek.
