Nepal homestay trekking holiday

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

We do not support and do not promote any trips that can bring harm to the environment or wildlife. We designed this beautiful low-altitude trek to decrease crowds of Everest region. While mostly everyone first-time traveller is trying to complete a popular destination, we strongly suggest discovering off beaten path treks.

Why so? Well, firstly all Nepal is beautiful and from everywhere you can observe snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. When we discover new trails we bring a positive impact. When there is a demand in some direction - more chances the government will try to develop this part of the region, like building good roads, providing more facilities to develop tourism, conserve the nature, protect the animals and keep the area well maintained.

Nepal has a problem with trash pollution. Our aim to make sure we recycle what is left, the government has designed special areas only on famous routes where we can utilize and sort the trash. But these hidden paths have to be cleaned as well not only in touristic places but everywhere. If there is a flow of tourism then the next steps will be taken to keep the area clean. We hope that preventing plastic pollution and educating locals will bring a bigger result than just cleaning the territory once in a year.

Nepal is very rich on waters, but pollution of waters also becoming a thing. Not only humans but wildlife are using water to drink and bath. We free the land, sea and waterways from rubbish and pollution.

The only source of energy is solar panels. There is no problem to charge your devices if you bring your portable panel with you.

Community

We offer 5% of the total cost of the trip to support the annual lunch program of a particular remote school in Syangja district which we encounter during this trek. This area is very remote and families cannot send all their kids to school because they don't have enough financial funds. We took responsibility not just to donate the money to the school because the level of corruption is high, but we prefer to buy food from local farmers and provide it to schools.

In this way, we create a demand for locals to keep doing farming, and at the same time, teachers and children have their lunches every day.
The problem of education is that no teacher wants to go and live in remote areas of Nepal with little salary and no comfortable facilities for living. We also provide opportunities for locals to become teachers, stay at home with their families and give proper education to children.

Newari culture is very unique as they hold their own language, cuisine, traditions, customs and we would love to promote this, to keep it alive and respected. For this, when you follow the program we ask locals to show as much as possible the beauty of their culture. We believe as long as they practice it and do the performances, it can't be forgotten.

Everything on our way is owned by locals: shops, restaurants, homestays. Our guides and porters are also only locals who were born and raised in this region, who know the language and culture. So all you spend is going to them. By choosing to stay at home with families you create income for them, same when you're eating at local restaurants locally grown organic food or when buying traditional handcrafts to take home as souvenirs.
