We care about the country we work in and about the people we employ. We practice responsible travel in all aspects of our business, from the guides we use, to the food we eat; we try to ensure we give back to the communities and areas we work in. On tour we will encourage our clients to follow responsible travel principles from suggesting biodegradable soaps to refusing plastic bags. Our local guides in Nepal are paid well and fairly, we use locally owned and run hotels and eat in local restaurants using produce from the country.
