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
As many items as possible are recycled in the business. From re-using paper at the office and utilising the refilling of printer cartridges to the recycling of cans, and glass on river trips and separating food waste which is either buried or removed and fed to local livestock. All fires are in firepans and the waste is also removed. We are the only rafting company in Nepal, who remove human waste in portable toilets. This is then disposed off at the relevant sewage works when the trip returns to town. Not only is this responsible but showing this is making other companies follow suit.
Guests are reminded to bring water bottles, which we refill on the rafts, from an expedition water filter, minimising or reducing the need for any plastic bottles.

On additional activities where our guests partake in safariís, we only choose operators with a responsible tourism ethos. No elephant rides are allowed, nor are any activities where animals are mistreated or kept in captivity. Guests are provided with relevant ways to protest ecosystems, especially when hiking and protecting the fragile river environment.

On all of our adventures, we take our guests on village visits where we can directly benefit the community. On this trip frequent village visits are made, whether to buy tea for the group or visit a local riverside temple. We encourage bringing school supplies to Nepal to distribute to school en route . It is imperative that all of our destinations contain a meaningful cultural experience.

All of our local grocery providers deliver all goods in cardboard boxes and no single use plastics are used.

Our staff are encouraged to cycle to work both in the UK and our international destinations. In Nepal, we provide bikes for personal use.

The Impacts of this Trip

In our Nepal where rafting is established, we employ local guides and staff and assist them to dramatically improve their skill levels. This is done by us employing the best possible guides in the area, paying a fair guiding wage as in other parts of the world, using very experienced international guides to help train the team, paying for guides to get international qualifications such as IRF guiding qualifications and fascilitating guides travelling to other countries to broaden their experiences both culturally and with river experience. We also put many of our Nepali team through English courses to assist them in interacting with the guests.

We train local guides up on the river, teach English and share the skills needed to take care of guests on an international adventure trip. Guides are taught to cook to a very high standard, with a wide variety of cuisine. The most pride our guides have is the night they cook for all of our guests the traditional Dahl Bhat.

We support local businesses along the river corridor as well as buying locally sourced fresh food.
