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.
PlanetTravel has the power to transform not only the traveler but also our world. This belief forms the foundation of our business. We have a deep commitment to protecting and preserving the destinations we visit and building a better world through sustainable travel.
We encourage travellers to reduce waste and water consumption wherever possible, specifically by providing opportunities to utilize refillable water bottles and providing canvas totes for shopping to reduce the number of plastic bags. Limiting water usage by actions like taking shorter showers and declining bedding changes can be very beneficial, specifically in the Gurung community where travelers will stay in local teahouses.
For our tours to Nepal, we reserve a portion of the tours to support the World Resources Institute. WRI’s mission is to move human society to live in ways that protect Earth’s environment and its capacity to provide for the needs and aspirations of current and future generations. In Nepal, WRI engages in electricity governance, climate adaptation, and finance tracking.
We operate on a completely paperless basis when communicating with clients and our contacts on the ground, recycle all plastic bottles from the tours, and invest in the conservation of local forests. Tour guides in Nepal teach the travellers to stay on the paths, as to not disturb the local flora and fauna.
PeopleWe start by focusing our tours during the off season and shoulder-season in Nepal, creating economic stability in the country's tourism sector. By booking directly through our partners, we can utilize local guides, encourage clients to buy local souvenirs, and stay at locally owned & operated accommodations. Not only do our travelers have better experiences but as much money as possible stays within Nepal.
While trekking in Nepal, our guests stay in teahouses. These hotels are locally owned and operated, and travelers visiting in the off season give them a consistent income from tourism.
Our ground partner promotes women's empowerment and leadership. They provide training and development for women to become trekking guides in Nepal. A portion of our trips also goes to a non-profit that supports working mothers in the country.
To date, 90.31% of the total cost of all tours booked with us has gone directly back into the local economies.
We require all travelers to respect the local customs and traditions of Nepal. Being mindful of our actions abroad always results in a better experience while traveling.
