Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Nepal trek with Chitwan National Park safari

Our trekking company is wholly committed to responsible tourism. On our treks & tours, tourism helps improve the standard of living for the local people by generating income for the local community through purchasing of local products such as fresh fruits, handloom products, meat, drinks, and fresh vegetables and providing job opportunities.

We employ well-trained & experienced local guides and hire local porters whose load limit is 20-25kg. Our guides will give a briefing about responsible tourism e.g. rubbish disposal, giving food scraps to domestic animals, paying the porters to carry out trash, using a fire pit when camping, not picking flowers, using kerosene instead of firewood, avoiding bathing/washing clothes in streams, using local tea houses or camping sites. In addition the small group size of 4-10 people helps to minimise the impact on the environment.

On this trek, we stay at local tea houses and lodges operated by local communities such as Chisapani trekking lodge, Balthali Resort and High-view Resort. These lodges minimise the impact on the environment by using kerosene/gas fuel instead of fire wood and disposing of their rubbish appropriately.

Our trekking company provides financial donations for the local school (US $2 per visitor) & health post (US $3 per visitor). We provide educational materials for students such as copies, pencils, ball pens and sports equipment (foot balls, basket balls), and provide equipment & medicines for the health post such as tablets, eye drops, high-altitude tablets, plasters and bandages. We also support the Kvresthali Women society with financial donations (US $5 per visitor) which provides education for impoverished adult women and provides funds for goat and vegetables farming and road repair.

On this trip, our guests will have the opportunity to give donations to these causes, and visit the Kavresthali Women Society to observe their activities.

Too many memorable moments to mention - the people, the splendour of the mountain views, relaxing in the Garden of Dreams, the bustle of the streets of Thamel, and sights in and around Kathmandu. The trekking, the sight of Rhino, Crocodiles and lovely Sambar Deer at Chitwan. Pasaputinath and the atmosphere around the riverside ghats. Read full review

Nepal is a very fascinating. It's chaotic, loud, polluted, crazy in the cities and quiet, pure and serene in the countryside. It is fascinating that you can travel from the hot, flat jungle with amazing wildlife to towns with palaces and loads of cultural sites or to snow-covered, cool mountains in less than a day.

It was wonderful to walk through out the lovely villages meeting people and also the beauty of the countryside and experiencing breath taking views of the mountains. Trekking was the ideal way to experience all of this. My guide was perfect and a sensitive host and along with our porter I felt like a little family at the end. Read full review

The most exciting part of the trip was going on a walking safari in Chitwan and whilst grumbling about never really seeing any wildlife suddenly coming right on top of a mother rhino with her baby in the long grass. We had been told to run like mad in a zig zag fashion and despite the heat we did run very fast indeed. Read full review

Riding an elephant at 6.30am on Xmas day through the Chitwan jungle and spotting the one horned rhino is hard to beat. I can still see the breathtaking views on our trek round the Kathmandu valley that were constantly changing. Read full review
