PlanetOur trekking company is wholly committed to responsible tourism. As a trekking specialist we focus on walking and low carbon ways of exploring our surroundings which leaves minimal impact when organised properly with sustainability in mind.
We employ well-trained & experienced local guides and hire local porters whose load limit is 20-25kg. Our guides will give a briefing about responsible tourism e.g. rubbish disposal, giving food scraps to domestic animals, paying the porters to carry out trash, using a fire pit when camping, not picking flowers, using kerosene instead of firewood, avoiding bathing/washing clothes in streams, using local tea houses or camping sites. In addition the small group size of 4-10 people helps to minimize the impact on the environment.
On this trek, we stay at local lodges/tea-houses operated by local people such as Langtang view lodge, Green hill lodge, Lake view lodge which manage rubbish properly and use gas for cooking, rather than firewood.
PeopleOn our treks & tours, tourism helps improve the standard of living for the local people by generating income for the local community through purchasing of local products such as fresh fruits, hand loom products, meat, drinks, and fresh vegetables and providing job opportunities.
There is the opportunity to support talented students of hilly region for the higher education and travel to abroad.

Support to local health posts is given through donating medical materials.
