Check dates, prices & availability
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.
PlanetWe do our best to give you the best possible experience while keeping our carbon footprint low.
To begin with, we request all of our travellers to pack as light as possible, as this will allow you to move around easier and reduces the carbon footprint throughout the trip by using less resources to move the luggage around.
Our main mode of transport on this Myanmar trip is public transport - you will be using mostly public buses for the long haul trips. For shorter trips our Adventure leader will be showing you around either on foot or on bikes - a great way to discover the places at a slower pace, so you have time to absorb the rich beauty Myanmar has to offer.
We also partner with locally run hostels that encourage our travellers to be self-sustainable and are keen to make as little impact on the planet as possible. We have also partnered with locals to provide you with homestay and stay in treehouses - this way you will really immerse yourself in the local life and nature while reducing the demand for hotels.
As you will on on the jungle trek, you will come across a lot of wildlife. We request our travellers to keep all their rubbish until there is a suitable place to dispose of it, that way the wildlife are not affected by any rubbish our tour might leave behind. We also encourage our travellers to be very respectful towards any animals that we come across - we request you to not feed the birds or animals, to not use any flash photography and to be as gentle as possible in your movements so we do not scare the animals. We also request our travellers to be as careful as possible with the flora found on the trip.
PeopleWhile we encourage our travellers to travel, as it is important to learn about other cultures, we do our best to make sure we are giving back to the communities that we are visiting.
We hire local tour guides. This provides you with in depth and native knowledge of the country while providing employment opportunities for the locals. Our Adventure Leaders are trained in ensuring that customers are aware of local customs and traditions, educating them on when it is appropriate to take photos and/or videos.
We try to promote integration between the local people and our travellers through our unmissable activities. Our activities are designed to the travellers can learn more about the way of life in Myanmar. Such as the bike tour around Inle Lake where the travellers get to visit the shore-side dwellings and get a peek into the local life there. The Monks lunch at Amarapura is also an activity designed to give an insight into Myanmar. If in need of any sort of service, we encourage our travellers to use the local services as this will benefit the local community directly.
Instead of traditional hotel accommodation only, we have added a homestay night in this trip. This way the travellers get to see the type of life that locals lead, the type of food that is eaten at home and get to mingle with the locals. While the locals benefit from your visit.
