Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

You will come across many yaks on this trip. Be respectful to them and don't come too close for a selfie. Naturally, they are very calm and peaceful majestic creatures, but safety for both sides is a must. If you see yak coming in front of you on the trail, give him his way and take a safe side, don't stay on the cliff or edge of the hill.

During our trek, we won't take anything that leaves trash behind us as we don't carry such kind of things. We humbly ask you not to bring any plastic with you (bags, cosmetic travel kits or shampoos, etc). If you have some carry it with you till you return to civilization or see a special zone where you can throw it away. Our guides will consult with you about our policies. Also, don't accept any plastic bags from locals when you buy any fruits or snacks.

On the trails, there will be water points where you can refill you BPA-free bottle for free and there is no need to buy mineral water in plastic bottles. Water purifying pills is the best choice when in the Himalayas.

All the energy in the mountains comes from solar panels and if you bring your own you'll be able to charge your gadgets.

All our suppliers like guides, porters, hotels, tea houses, lodges and restaurants match our environmental values: eco-friendly, reducing the use of plastic where possible, installing solars, using yaks as transportation method.

All food is grown in Nepal and local areas as imported food is too expensive in Nepal.

Being a vegetarian or a vegan is highly promoted on this tour.

This is completely a walking/trekking tour: no buses, no cars.

People

All our treks are run by locals. Due to our policy, we employ locals as our guides and porters from the sherpa region to create more income for those who in need and provide jobs in remote areas of Nepal.

All our members have good working conditions: salary, insurance, equipment, meals and accommodation.

We encourage travellers to tip if they are happy with the service they receive and want to support locals. Many people's income depends on the tourists seasons in those regions.

We sustain jobs and cultural diversity by supporting local craft makers and artisans and promoting cultural attractions. If we have time before or after the trek, we'll visit women empowering centres. They do a lot for gender inequality in Nepal and work with the vulnerable society.

When visiting Nepal we try to spend time in local places. This allows you to learn a bit our language, greet people on your way, sit and have a tea with small talk, teach them a bit of your language. And of course, be modest and humble as the majority of the population is still very conservative. There is no connection with outside world but when we talk we erase the boundaries between cultures and become one.
