The tourism boom in Nepal, as in other countries, has had a mixed blessing. It has generated a sizeable share of Nepal’s foreign currency revenue but few people in the tourist destinations have experienced an improvement in their standard of living. In fact, for many communities, the influx of visitors has come at a considerable cost.
In numerous places, trekking groups have left littered trails and degraded forest in their wake. Against this alarming backdrop, the practice of ecologically friendly-tourism has been gaining increased momentum – both in Nepal and around the World. Our approach to tourism seeks not only to preserve the environment and culture of a tourist destination but also to be of benefit to the local population…. By fostering environmental awareness, both among locals & visitors and by linking tourism to social and economic development, it is possible to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of an area through the promotion of sustainable tourism. This not only enhances the positive experience of those on holiday it also helps to increase the standard of living of the local residents. Such a lot has been said about environmentally friendly tourism and no doubt a lot more will be. We can say without hesitation that we have, along with a few other trekking companies in Nepal led the way in responsible tours to our Kingdom.
In addition to our trekking itineraries, we organize cultural tours and village-to-village walks which are less strenuous but equally as rewarding. We provide the opportunity for you to visit remote villages where you spend more time in a particular destination allowing you a more intimate glimpse into traditional village life;
Village people are generally exceedingly friendly. They welcome you with their hearts and smiles and are always happy to share their music and dance, without it necessarily being for any reason The exchange is reciprocal and villagers will often request our clients to join in with their own songs and dances for the benefit of all.
Our packages are specifically designed to ensure that supplies are secured in the village communities we visit. In this way we are able to support the preservation of the heritage that is Nepalese culture while improving the living standards of the people we visit.
