Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

1. Your journey to Spiti is carbon neutral, and there are various ways to fulfil this which you will see as you travel. The fee you pay is partially invested in solar power projects which reduces requirement of wood by upto 50% and carbon emission by 2.5 tonnes. Wood is scarce in Spiti and reducing its usage for burning will eventually increase the green cover in this region
2. When you stay in our homestays you will notice that water for bathing is heated by solar power. Sunlight is in abundance and is freely available. These initiatives are in sync with Goal No. 7 of UN Sustainable Development Goals which promotes 'Affordable and Clean energy' for all
3. Remote Himalayan villages do not have any waste management plants. Therefore, it is important to be cautious of the kind of waste we generate. Keeping that in mind, we have eliminated use of plastic disposable bottles. On an average a tourist uses 3-4 disposable plastic water bottles per day which can cause environmental disaster in Spiti. To deal with this issue, we will provide you with alternative solutions of clean drinking water in reusable portable bottles as you travel. This initiative is in sync with Goal No. 12 of UN Sustainable Development Goals which promotes 'Responsible Production and Consumption' of resources
4. We also follow environmental responsibility in office where 100% of documentation, receipts, invoices and notes are done in digital form

People

1. Apart from farming, village tourism provides a major source of income for the inhabitants of Spiti. Therefore we urge you to experience living in a homestay which also deepens cultural exposure. With shifting climate patterns, the income from homestays becomes more important. Homestays in our program are allocated in rotational form so that everyone gets equal opportunity
2. Additional activities designed for you which involves handicrafts, traditional medicine, dances and songs from Spitian culture help in conserving these age old traditions, and provides additional income for the custodians of knowledge. Thus your trip ensures that you leave maximum positive impact locally
3. When you involve with locals during the activities mentioned above, we facilitate conversations that help you know the local culture and their daily life. These activities are executed in the house or village of the artist itself rather than in a commercial place. It gives you a truly authentic experience and creates mutual respect between you and locals
4. Traditionally, the men and women of Spiti have been involved in farming and Spiti used to be cut from outside world for major part of the year. But with homestays and cultural activities, there is a greater opportunity for women to come forth and support men equally in tourism. Often the traditional roles of women like cooking or looking after children are shared by men and vice versa as it is suitable
