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.
PlanetWater is a precious commodity in the Khumbu valley, despite the amount of ice! In addition, safe water is a key requirement for Western visitors. All lodges help in the provision of clean water, but we encourage our travellers to take life straws and water containers to ease the process and we ensure two litres per day are provided from boiled water sources. We therefore reduce the need for disposable plastic and waste. If people need power to recharge phones or cameras, we encourage portable chargers rather than using the local power, which is solar generated and limited in supply. The local people already use Yak dung as fuel and most stoves are powered by this readily available source. We work with local accommodation and meal providers to ensure local people gain from our visits through our spend and share the same values, which as the Sherpa people are spiritual and worship the mountains and nature, is more about us learning from them!
