Everest Mani Rimdu Festival trek, Nepal
Description of Everest Mani Rimdu Festival trek, Nepal
2021: 2 Nov
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.
PlanetOn this trek, we're going to visit Solokhumbu region which is a gate to Everest trekking region. It's a very popular trek and because of crowds, the region can't utilize the trash properly that rises there every year. We are the proud innovators of ‘Trash Man’, where we send a trash man with our group of adventure lovers. He’s responsible not only for managing the garbage disposal of our groups but also for creating awareness programs throughout trekking days.
We’ve been working hard to find homestays for different trekking trails in Nepal. Homestays are a great way for visitors to experience local life while providing local families with an extra source of income. For this, we take off the beaten path where possible and stay in villages that are not popular on this trail yet. Currently, we are working on exploring new trekking routes with the help of locals.
The joint aims of our programs are to ensure the minimum negative impact on the lives of local people and their environment, whilst thriving to enhance conditions in any way conceivable.
We believe in environment-friendly tourism. We discourage polluting the trekking routes with plastic bags, plastic water bottles and litter. We help you to leave the lightest footprint on our land for future generations to enjoy.
Our choice - BPA free bottles to refill it with boiled water or purified water instead of mineral water in plastic bottles.
All energy in Nepal is clean and made of hydropower or solar panels.
PeopleWe employ local guides from all over the country and have a team of experts with crucial knowledge of each trail. Our tour leaders in the city are cultural buffs and experts in customs and traditions. We offer them good working conditions: salary, insurance, equipment, meals and accommodation. Once in a few years, we provide them with special guide training where they can improve and share their knowledge. Also, we encourage them to learn new languages except for English so that they could be in higher demand and had more jobs opportunities.
A balance between culture, nature, locals and adventurers is our core. For this, we keep our groups small and use only local staffs. Nepali people are still very conservative and before travelling to our country we recommend you to do a research on do's and don'ts, dress modestly, greet locals on your way, learn a bit of Nepali language, have a tea with locals, and teach them your language.
During the tour we'll stay at locally-owned hotels and teahouses, homestays where possible, we'll eat in authentic restaurants which are using organic food. We don't encourage begging, but we do encourage supporting local handicrafts manufacturers that employ and educate vulnerable women and men in Nepal
