Nepal and Bhutan tailor made holiday
Description of Nepal and Bhutan tailor made holiday
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
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.
PlanetHimalayas is a fragile ecosystem. Due to lack of local awareness, the impact of plastic and air pollution on this ecosystem has been immense. To overcome this issue, we encourage all our guides and drivers to follow great social hygiene practices viz. throwing the garbage in bins, minimise the use of plastics. During the hikes, if there is no bin around then the guides/ Sherpas collect the garbage in a separate bag and dispose it off appropriately upon return. Also, the local guide association is going a great work on the ground to make a positive impact. The guests who are found littering are sensitised by the guide.
Most of the tourism related vehicles in Nepal are very old and do not follow any environment norms. We being a responsible company, ensure that only newer vehicles are offered to our guests that are emission tested and are comfortable.
Being a responsible company, we do not encourage mistreatment of animals. So, do not recommend using Yaks, Elephants or any animals during tours in Nepal and Bhutan.
PeopleWe believe that tourism is a great way to learn more about local culture, food and also an employment opportunity for locals. Authentic food and cooking tour in Bhutan offers wonderful opportunity to our guests to meet a local family and understand more about Bhutanese culture and food. During this tour, we take our guests to one of a local household where they sit with the family and interact with them. They learn how to cook an authentic Bhutanese Cuisine and how to keep it that way.
We select top hotels in Himalayas for our guests that not only offer great ambience, food to guests but offer good employment opportunities to local youth. Bhutan has made striking efforts to be an environmental benchmark. It is one of the few in the world to have negative carbon rating. Le Meridien in Thimphu, COMO hotels, Aman Hotels, Taj Tashi and other boutique hotels all believe in Bhutan’s philosophy of being an environmentally viable tourism country.
