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
This trip takes you to the places where sometimes you will need to be cautious about the environment. Sometime you will need to walk, hike, and travel using donkeys. Some areas not reachable with means of transportation, so we will need to walk for some kilometers. You will visit sentob village which is very beautiful. You will be asked to minimize your influence on the region`s flora and fauna

At guesthouses, you will not be provided regular bathtubs to avoid waste of water and energy for heating. Also, you may be asked to reduce the usage of water resources by using towels and bath towels more than once, to keep out of laundry. Water is heated using solar battery energy or/and some places use natural day-long sun-rays.

At Yurts, you may not have air-conditioning or only common premises such as the dining room only can have a cooling system.

Our local suppliers are chosen carefully, after plenty of research, meetings and discussions to ensure that we are aligned in our thinking and have mutual trust in our approach and standards. When we say 'our thinking', we mean that they must share our desire to protect the environment that we are passing through. In Uzbekistan this means not only avoiding plastic waste being thrown into the local environment, but actually taking bin bags and ensuring that on trip our guests are encouraged to pick litter and remove it from the wild environment. Sadly recycling is not available in Uzbekistan, so it is far better to reduce waste in the first instance. The suppliers we choose must either share our approach to protecting and enhancing the quality of the natural environment, or be willing to work with us to develop better practices.

All of our suppliers work with us to ensure that groups avoid negatively affecting the local environments through which they pass. Waste is removed and wildlife is respected. Water courses are not polluted by human waste.

In this way, we not only always employ local guides, drivers and suppliers but often work with local providers to ensure that services provided are utilizing local resources as far as is possible. The craftsmen , masters produce their product and sell in the souvenir shops and get profit from this. Women do emboridery at home and get profit selling it not only to foreigners but also to locals. We hire locals guides so that they know every single place related to the region, only they know better where to go, what to get and what must see in each region.
