Team Himalaya Treks & Expeditions is highly intact in Responsible Tourism from the beginning of our company’s history; all our guides and staff are well versed in eco-tourism, caring of the fragile environment saving from destructions and respecting the local culture, traditions and religions on route our trekking and in any other travel destinations.
We have established the company to serve all travelers with professional management taking of all valued clients views and interest and to make them feel safe, secure and enjoyable holiday in our friendly and caring environment.
Besides taking care of our clients our staff and porters are equally important as the company provides welfare and insurance, as well respecting the villagers and customs on trekking routes.
Team Himalaya provides employment opportunities’ and development of the local villages and reducing poverty in whatever we can by creating a fund, where 15-20 % of our gain goes directly to needy villages.
We encourage our guest in purchasing local products like handicraft, carpets, and using local accommodation as lodge and guest houses and charity programs that is run by local community, which helps in building school and houses in rural areas, employment and allowing local market to sell their product to the tourist which supports sustainability for the people economy growth.
On trekking if camping we always use kerosene stoves or LPG for cooking by not using firewood’s saving the green environment from destructions, and always encourage our clients using the same water bottle to avoid plastic mineral water which causes a mess with much garbage where the recycle process is almost nil in Nepal.
We encourage our guests in respecting local culture, traditions and to follow their norms and religions practice in temples, monasteries and other shrines, monuments.
We advice our guests to wear appropriate dresses especially visiting holy sites and against nude bathing in rivers and lakes which is a great offence to local communities and culture, we advice our guest to enjoy the local scenery without disturbing the environment and leave nothing but the footprints in all our trips.
