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.
PlanetClean water in the tap is precious here, please keep that in mind when taking shower or brushing our teeth.
Meanwhile, Nepal is rich on pure clean spring waters and you can easily purify water in your BPA-free bottle brought with you to avoid all buying water bottles.
We ask not to bring any one-time used travel kits like shampoo or toothbrush or bags. Also, don't take them from hotels as when you take them away you create a demand to produce more. Don't accept plastic bags when you're buying goods from locals.
It is always sunny in Nepal so you can bring your solar panels to charge your gadgets. Mostly all energy in Nepal generated from it as it is a more stable source and doesn't affect the environment.
We will visit plenty of cultural heritage on this trip and you can see how much was done since the tragical earthquake in 2015. Lots of monuments are still repairing thankfully to many local and foreign initiatives.
During this trip, we will use public and private buses as our transportation. Sightseeing walking and cycling tours are available by bicycles
All our suppliers support eco-movements and our trend to be eco-friendly.
During this trek we recommend you to go vegetarian which helps to use more locally-grown food, reduce CO2 emissions.
We won't be using any domestic flights, all our transportation includes buses, and of course, we will be walking.
All ou places to stay and eat are using solar panels as itis the only source of energy here. You can bring your own solar panel to charge your gadgets as well
PeopleAll our guides, drivers and assistants are locals who we employ and train once in a year to give them a chance to grow professionally. We encourage our guides to learn new languages as well to have more opportunities to work. We provide them with good working conditions and everything they need to feel comfortable.
In these major cities, we will stay in hotels that are locally-owned, in addition we will eat in locally-owned restaurants. We will visit many handicraft shops which educate and employ women in Nepal. We will also have a chance to learn how to support them in their beginnings that's why we recommend you to buy souvenirs from these little shops.
People here are still conservative so we ask you to dress modestly, behave like locals in temples, take off shoes where a sign, don't take photos if it's not allowed.
Greet each other, have a small talk with locals, have a masala tea with them, learn a bit Nepali and teach your language. All these little things help to establish a connection with those, who even don't speak English. Take part in national celebrations and live like a local when in Nepal!
