Nepal 8 day tour

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

On our Multiday Tours, We provide reusable bottles to each guest and encourage them to refill at filtered water stations at hotels and restaurant to minimize plastic waste.

During wildlife sanctuary visits, we use government recognised, well trained and most experienced local operators and guides.

This tour requires us to us car/minivans at some points we use local rickshaws, we also encourage guests as per there skills, to use bicycles for some sightseeing. To keep transport emission down, we use bicycles, encourage walking, hiking to cover some of the must-do sights in each city.

We use the accommodation in Chitwan (Evergreen ecolodge) which serves organically and locally grown vegetables for breakfast and also have waste composting. They also use solar energy and promote ecotourism and provide bicycles for local use.


Additionally, our company uses 100% recycled paper for all our print products. This does not only include brochures, hand-outs and feedback forms but also envelopes and carry bags. We have recently transitioned from using paper feedback forms after our tours to an online form. Guests fill it out using their own electronic devices. We have also moved away from providing plastic water bottles after our tours. We now use a communal water tank with re-usable glasses.

Online through our NGO's website, we offer merchandise products after the tour that represent an upcoming green and fair-trade movement in India. For example, we sell shirts from 'No Nasties', a t-shirt label that provides 100% fair-trade and 100% organic cotton t-shirts.

Community

All our accommodations are locally run businesses. We do not use multinational chains of hotels. We use local guides during local tours and excursions to support the local economy in each city we visit during this trip.

We also use locally run homestays and small businesses as our accommodation partners to support the local economy. In Chitwan, we stay at an Ecolodge which promotes Ecotourism, uses solar electricity, composting toilets and have a wastewater recycling system

We use 80% of the profits from this tour to support our NGO, Reality Gives. Currently, profits generated from the tours enable Reality Gives to run programs for the Dharavi (Mumbai) and Sanjay Colony (New Delhi) communities. Reality Gives is currently developing and testing several high-quality curricula and teacher training modules that we plan to make widely available for other NGOs to use. We plan to use resource sharing like this as a way to support local NGOs in a sustainable and helpful manner.

Reality Gives provides high-quality English, Computer and Life Skills classes/syllabus for vulnerable individuals, prominently young people. We also run a Teachers Training Course to ensure that not only we have the high-quality syllabus, but quality teachers (in India there is a shortfall of 800,000 teachers, and the present ones are not of good quality). In addition to this, we provide Community Centres as hubs for young people to express their creativity through a wide range of inspiring activities that children from low-income communities too often do not have access to (drama classes, dance classes, sport, for example). Our syllabi, as well as teachers training, will be available to other NGOs to use.

Since 2009, the profits from our tours have enabled Reality Gives to work with more than 8,000 young people from Dharavi and Sanjay Colony.
