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
We are committed to positive environmental impacts through our Responsible Travel Policy. As an overland company we have extremely low carbon emissions throughout all our journeys. This journey operates over 3,780km departing from Dushanbe, travelling along the Pamir Highway in Tajikistan and into Krygyzstan before concluding in Bishkek. Our small group size ensures that we are using small buses en route. We also ensure to use experienced drivers who know the areas best when transfers are needed. This allows us to be confident there will be no risk of damage to the environment and local flora.

We use Local Partners who work with us to design journeys an optimal way to limit our impact on the environment.

We make certain to reduce plastic waste by promoting reusing drink bottles instead of buying bottled water. Where possible our clients stay in smaller-scale accommodation, such as locally owned guesthouses, in support of the local people. We try to include as many local lunches, dinners and wineries in our journeys which enables us to spread economic benefits while also promote cultural understanding. We also make certain that none of our scheduled sightseeing visit zoos or orphanages.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We have a very clear mandate to support the local community and without these Local Partners our on ground experiences wouldn’t be the same. We have been operating journeys throughout Asia for over 50 years and strive to build on our long established reputation for having the utmost respect for the places and communities that we visit.

We contract the services of Local Guides and City Ambassadors through our Local Partners. In addition, we partner with local families, which we find not only enriches the overall experience through homestays and sharing meals, and allows us to understand local traditions and create sound relationships between clients and locals. Learning the nomadic traditions through these remote regions provides an education for us all.

On this trip you will visit and do a homestay in a traditional pamiri house with a local family. There are plenty of visits to villages included in the trip too, where you will get to experience local life and culture such as the working process of making a traditional Rubab, which is a string musical instrument. It is famous all over the Islamic world and it is very specific in Badakhshan as the people here are very fond of music.

We visit local markets where possible again helping to serve as an authentic and cultural experience and one, which maintains a closer bond between client and local. We always encourage our group to buy locally and encourage local trade and artistry.
