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.
As you move from place to place, you’ll use public transport, an effective way to help lower your carbon footprint, mingle with the locals and soak up the scenic views as you make your way to the next location. There will also be a lot of walking in each location to discover them. These walking trips will provide you with light exercise - looking after your well being, while also reducing the carbon footprint on the planet - looking after the planet’s well being!
All of the places we stay in are locally run and passionate about doing their part when it comes to the environment. On this tour, we stay in hostels and spend 1 night at a homestay in Lumbini, a great way to immerse yourself in a local Nepali tradition and see how Nepali homes are run very efficiently. You will also stay one night in a monastery where you can learn to live on just the right amount of resources. Whilst you’re staying in each of these places, we encourage you to use local services on offer, this way your money goes straight into the local community and economy.
We visit a Monkey Temple and a National park on this trip. Just before we visit these two places our Adventure Leader will speak to you to emphasise that there should be no flash photography, that you should not feed the animals and that you should not disturb or scare the animals. We want our travellers to see the amazing a as animals as there is much we can learn from them but at the same time we want to make sure everyone is respectful of them so that the monkeys do not feel threatened in any way.
We suggest packing a reusable water bottle to ensure you have water on hand at all times and help minimise the trail of plastic left behind as much as possible. We do not advise to drink tap water but if there are refill points we highly encourage our travellers use this. We also recommend packing as light as possible, to help keep your carbon footprint low.
PeopleLocal tour guides:
We use native and bilingual guides. By using local tour guides we help support the local people and provide employment opportunities.
You’ll learn about the local cuisine throughout the trip. There will be a momo (dumplings) making class- a very popular dish in Nepal and during your homestay and the stay in the monastery you will experience traditional Nepali cuisine. Our Adventure Leader will always be happy to give you recommendations for traditional restaurants throughout the trip. By visiting the temples and doing homestays you will also be able to see into to daily lives and culture of Nepal.
All of our customers’ interactions are with local suppliers, and we promote integration between travellers and local people through our “unmissable” included activities and our optional activities, and opportunities for authentic cultural immersion.
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.
