Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Snow leopard expedition in Ladakh, India

Environment

Our mission is to provide our clients with the adventure of a lifetime by offering them a means to experience diverse cultures and explore unfamiliar landscapes in a safe, exciting and responsible way. We have always been a firm supporter of responsible travel practices and we actively promote this philosophy within the company, to our travellers and to our business partners.

We make every effort to minimise our impact on the environment by reducing and offsetting our carbon emissions, reducing waste by recycling, repairing and reusing what we can, and being careful of delicate ecologies, wildlife and their habitats.

Travel to national parks and wildlife areas can bring positive economic benefits as entrance fees contribute to the maintenance and conservation of local flora and animal species, while visitors benefit from the educational aspects of the area and take away with them an increased awareness of the need and place for conservation. Our tour leaders and drivers follow strict policy while visiting national parks to minimise pressure on Wildlife Tourism.

We try to look for home stays, lodges and hotels which are safe, comfortable and operated in a sustainable way. We specifically pay attention to the lodges and camps, located around national parks for their waste disposal and eco-tourism policies.

Local resources such as water and electricity are often in short supply and tourism can put pressure on these services and supplies which can in turn reduce the supplies available to local people. In order to mitigate this, we make every effort to impart information to travellers to help them act responsibly in order to minimise tourism impact on local resources.

Community

Group size plays an important role and we keep the numbers low to minimize the negative impacts on environment and the interaction with the guide at the historical site is more on one to one basis.

We use hotel at Leh town and home stays in the remote areas. The home-stays are all owned and operated by locals. The home-stay owners are sheep herders who earn extra income from tourism during winter period. Through tourism they have grown to understand the importance of a live snow leopard than a dead one who picks up their cattle.

The guides we employ on this tour are locals who know about the terrain thoroughly. On this tour you will be meeting with many guides from different areas sharing real experiences from their own lives and insights into family life, influences and beliefs, thus providing our travellers with a deeper understanding of the places they visit.

We encourage our guests to dine at locally-owned restaurants to experience dishes cooked by local cooks. This not only supports the local economy but also offers a chance to enjoy local customs and cultures along with their cuisines.
