Responsible tourism

Nepal wildlife safari and rafting holiday

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

We have always believed in tourism that aims to have a low impact on the natural environment and local culture, generating income and employment for local people and promoting the conservation of local ecosystems. This is responsible tourism which is both ecologically and culturally sensitive. The locals have major roles to play in sustainable tourism, participating actively and taking responsibility in the industry. We encourage locals to sell local handicrafts or simply talk with tourists to give them an authentic image of the local culture.

Our guide will provide information on how to protect the environment e.g. do not drop litter, dispose of garbage in proper places like garbage boxes, establish fire point in camping treks/tours, if possible give food wastage to domestic animals. Pay a small extra amount to porters to bring back non-disposable items by duffel. Avoid bathing or washing clothes in streams etc. We take only small groups with a maximum of 16 people help to minimise our impact on the environment.

Community

We try to maximise our contribution to the local community by hiring local familiar guide and porters with knowledge about local culture. We encourage all our clients to hire porters to give local people employment, this is a great way of directing money straight back into the local economy. Our porters are not allowed to carry more than 25kg. In this trek we stay at local lodges/teahouses operated by local people. All lodges/teahouses minimise the impact on the environment by using kerosene/gas fuel instead of fire wood.

We are in partnership with registered charity organisation “Chhahari Group Nepal”, The organisation has been serving in Nepalese society since 2001. Most projects funded by them directly benefit the local community that has been affected by natural or political issues. Many other projects directly or indirectly benefit our citizens, e.g. orphanage home, community school, health camp, scholarship program etc. A current project involves helping to run a free community school for very poor families' children who can’t afford to send their kids to school.

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


White water rafting and seeing the sun rise over the Himalayas

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


If you make any changes to the set itinerary, get them confirmed in writing from the company Friendship Travel because they messed ours up

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


It benefitted local people to some extent as the people we dealt with were all Nepali. Chitwan is very pro-conservation so visiting it probably helps the protection of animals there from poachers.

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


Read the operator's response here:

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you were not happy with the changes that you requested to the itinerary. You made a late request to stay in Nagarkot instead of Kathmandu and unfortunately, due to it being peak season at a popular hill station, it was difficult to secure hotel availability without extra charges. We trust that you were happy with all the arrangements that were confirmed as per the original itinerary.
