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.
PlanetThis is a great trek to avoid crowds in Nepal, keep it less dirty. We're gonna stay half of the trek in tents with cooks who use portable gas cookers instead of wood-firing. Other time in lodges and hotels which carry the responsibility to lower the bad influence of carbon on the environment.
The water is really precious in this area so we will use natural springs for drinking and gonna purify them instead of buying and carrying mineral water in plastic.
This area is very remote and solar panels are the only and great ways to charge your gadgets, cameral and have a light in the evening after sunset.
Bring recharging light torch for the head instead of one time batteries.
Avoid bringing and use of plastic such as bags, shampoo, snacks and so on.
We will observe wildlife very close so it is recommended not to throw food on the ground, not to whistle or attract somehow attentions of wild animals, do not come close to yaks and buffalos for selfies. Respect the habitants on Annapurna region and stay safe yourself.
PeopleThis area is not touristic and not developed that's why we are going to use guides, sherpas, cooks, porters to carry our food, tents and equipment. All the things you buy on your way like local snacks, veggies, fruits, tea, dairy gonna benefit locals and help them to support themselves and their families during the year. All members of the team are locals to were born and raised in that area. We train them during the year, provide them with all needed for the safe working conditions: cloths, insurance, equipment, salary, meals, accommodation.
It is highly encouraged tipping your guides, porters and drivers as, as we said before, this area is not developed and tourism is the only way for people to have some income and live whole year.
We'll stay some nights in tea houses run by locals as well and it is also encouraged to eat and drink in the same place where you gonna stay for a night.
We will learn about projects that support, educate and employ women in Nepal.
This area is also conservative with unique culture and traditions so dress in a respect manner, be open to trying new things, new food, new way of life, greet everyone you meet on your way, participate in celebrations and learn some Nepali, also you can teach a little of your language to locals to create an open and friendly atmosphere, to remove language barriers between nations.
