New Experience Holidays
How the minimum criteria of the responsible travel standard was met...
In Nepal immense attention was given to the selection of a local representative with whom we could work confidently to ensure that not only did our clients have the very best trekking experience in the high Himalaya, but also our local guides and porters would be well provided for. We give a full briefing to all clients visiting Nepal on how to respect the local culture, how to profit the environment whist trekking and how to offer support to their guides and porters. We instruct trekkers for example, on the negative impact and prohibition of plastic water bottles and encourage using filtration systems and boiled water available in Everest and Annapurna Regions.
Within our office building everything which is recyclable is recycled and we strictly follow the highly efficient recycling system used within our county of Denbighshire. We pay attention to our usage and waste of paper, printing materials and all stationary related to office procedures. All cleaning products are eco-friendly and where possible we purchase fair trade products for staff refreshments from our local village store. Staff car share or cycle to work – we have minimal local public transport.
New Experience offers trekking holidays which visit small communities where we bring local employment by using rural accommodation supplying local produce to their guests. We feature hotels ‘out of season’ in stunning locations perfect for walking holidays but mainly frequented ‘in season’ by winter sports enthusiasts. This extra income allows them to maintain continuity in their income which they may otherwise be unable to sustain.
