Responsible tourism: Ukok plateau tour in the Altai Mountains

Environment

We offer tours to unique places. Ukok Plateau is one of such places. In the area of Ukok Plateau The Federal Natural Reserve is located. Our main aim is to safe the last places of the world where there is no human influence on nature. Ukok Plateau is located rather far from any villages but local people work with us as guides or staff for assistance. We also must pay for the admissions to enter the area of the Federal Natural reserve “Zone of Silence of Ukok”. So, we pay money directly to the Reserve to be sure that money goes directly to that institute.

We do use ATV during our trip due to difficulty in logistic. Local horses which we use for easier trips cannot walk so far with much luggage of the group. For them is too hard to travel high in the mountains with much luggage on the back. The places where horses cannot feel too tired we use local horses to help us during the trip. We pay money directly to local horse owners.

During our trips nature does not suffer. We do not leave any non biological waste during travelling on ground and water paths and after camps.

We respect the wildlife and, when in remote locations, we practice fishing for the only need of the day.

Other fresh food we buy from local people in the villages.

Our basic rules:

• We collaborate with the local organisations as National Parks in order to have the maximum synergy in term of knowledge of local rules to respect the nature
• We give priority to any form of traveling that reduce to minimum the use of cars, trucks and any other gasoline based form of transport
• We prefer the use of accommodations that respect nature and have a responsible policy of management of waste
• We respect the wildlife and, when necessary in remote locations, we practice fishing for the only need of the day
• We do not leave any non biological waste during travelling on ground and water paths and after camps

Community

In this area there are small ethnic groups and we very respect their traditions and customs. By visiting villages with local ethnic people we hope to encourage them not to lose touch with the practices of their ancestors, and enable to gain income from tourism where there are few opportunities for employment.

We promote the scientific approach for the understanding of the environment and the population in full contact with it. We promote the collaboration between our guests and the local expert of the territory to identify specific aspects as the relationship with the nature and the integration with foreigner visitors.
Our local guides explain how the community are benefited by the developing of the local projects explaining how they are organised and how we monitor them.

All travellers are pre-informed about the social and political situation of the destination: At arrival we make a brief with our guests informing about how we collaborate with the local population.
At the same time we inform how we move into their territory and live with them giving all suggestions on how to best integrate with their traditions and cultures.
