Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
This tour will transport you to an eclectic and culturally significant range of heritage sites that date back to ancient times and it will also take you to unique places of natural beauty, including parts of the Himalayas that are of spectacular beauty. However, the impacts of tourism on Mount Everest have been acutely felt in recent times and we fully endorse the need to help manage and protect this natural wonder.

Activity:
The tour includes all the important places of interest in central (like the Potala Palace, Drepung Monastery and Jokhang Temple ) and south Tibet to the Mount Everest. During the visit at the local Tibetan family in Lhasa, our clients will get a real insight of today`s Tibet. In your free time, we recommend tourists to tour the old Lhasa city on foot or by bicycle and other public transportation like city bus to minimize the carbon foot print. 

Office:
It is advocated to recycle paper and ink cartridges to reduce the waste in landfill sites. We turn off printers, computers, battery chargers and transformers at the end of each day and use energy-efficient bulbs and low-energy appliances.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

Our itinerary has been designed to fully incorporate the rural communities of the regions we visit, especially those in Tibet. We value their unique insights, knowledge, and hospitality, and believe that they too should benefit from tourism too. Wherever possible, we use locally-owned guesthouses, hotels, restaurants, and services to ensure that local communities and business prosper in a highly competitive market. An added bonus of using locally-owned services and people is that they will often be highly enthusiastic, generous and proud to welcome you into the places where many have been born and raised. Many of the locations we visit are of deep spiritual and religious importance and it is crucial of course that we fully respect these beliefs and traditions.

We are also exceptionally aware of the need to use local ‘green’ tourism services and businesses to ensure that the natural and social environments that host tourism are protected and well-managed. This includes the use of locally-sourced produce such as food and crafts, for example. However, perhaps one of the greatest reasons for using locally-owned accommodation is that you will see the ‘real’ Tibet in its various guises. You will sample traditional villages, religious customs, cuisines and ways of life that can be significantly different to anything you may have experienced before. We will also take you to incredible places away from the tourist crowds to ensure that your experiences are genuinely unique. We fully believe that this is a wonderful way to learn about this spectacular country and have no doubt that you will agree!

Accommodation and Meals:
We offer eco-friendly accommodations travelers, where the water is heated with the power from the solar panels. We employ more local people and use more local services, and we provide them with salary, travel rewards and opportunities for in-service training. This benefits local Tibetan economies and contributes to a better social environment in the areas where our customers visit in the tour.
