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
Wildlife in Bhutan and Nepal are precious. We will visit some conservation zones to observe animals and birds that are rare and the government is trying to increase the population of them. We can learn about many projects on the way and support some.

We run plastic-free movement that's why we ask you not to bring any plastic with you and don't accept plastic bags when you buy something from locals. We suggest that you carry your own BPA-free water bottle and refill it with purified water instead of buying bottled mineral water. Waters are very clean so you can freely drink it from water stations and refill your bottle.

Our guides will explain to you how to utilize garbage while on the trip. Let's keep lands and waters clean. Don't throw any food leftovers or leave the food open - it may attract wild animals. Don't yell or whistle when you meet any - noise can scare them and bring negative impact.

Tap water is precious, keep this in mind when you taking shower and brushing your teeth. We recommend using local transport where possible, as our drive to and from Pokhara. In Bhutan, we will use vans for bigger capacity rather than jeeps.#

All the hotels we choose carefully for supporting eco-movement: solar panels, electric stoves and ovens where possible, recycling garbage, locally grown food etc.

The Impacts of this Trip

All tours are run by locals: guides, hotels, restaurants, drivers, porters. We spread tourism income to those most in need. Don't buy imported food on travel - we highly recommend to buy fruits, local delicacies, drinks from local shops. We will visit many handicraft shops where you can learn about local manufactures which educate and employ women both in Nepal and Bhutan. We can take part in one of the workshops and learn more about this project which is very important for both countries.

We employ only local guides, drivers, porters to give more opportunities for locals as tourism is still the only away for people to make on living and support their families. We encourage to tip your team as well if you are grateful for their hard work and happy with the service. We offer them good working conditions: once a year new training and team-building trips, help them to learn one new language and run tours not only for English speaking travellers, medical insurance, provide all needed clothes and shoes, equipment, meals and accommodation.

Don't forget to greet locals everywhere you meet them on your way or in the house, have small talks, learn a little bit of Nepali, teach your own language. We believe it helps to remove cultural borders and become one. In Nepal do like the Nepali people do.
