“Investment in travel is an investment in yourself.” When you invest yourself it is our responsibility to make your investment-worthy. As a company member and citizen of Nepal, we will like to have responsible tourists who will understand us too. And it is also our first job to make tourists responsible, make them show positive behaviors while visiting Nepal, not only tourists but also the government, locals, hoteliers, operators, and all people who are supporting tourism in Nepal.
Responsible tourism is about “making better places for people to live in and better places for people to visit.” Nepal's government has always motivated people of the tourism sector to have sustainable development in the tourism industry. As a tourism company, open trail treks also believe in responsible tourism in Nepal, so here are some things that we will do together while you will visit Nepal with us:
Minimizes negative economic, environmental, and social impacts;
Give rise to economic benefits for local people by using a local homestay, campsites, locally owned hotels, and lodges.
Respect local people, support them, and respect them.
Make a valuable contribution to conserve natural beauty as well as cultural heritage by not disturbing the real presence of nature and cultural heritage.
To control deforestation we will use an alternative source of fire for cooking
To maintain cleanliness and hygiene we will choose proper dumping site or separate places for throwing waste materials
Environmental pollution is worst so to minimize this kind of pollution we use respective trekking trails, campsites, and resting places.
To explore more we will always use locally available services provided by local guides and porters which help tourists to know more about local culture and traditions and also trekking regions. It will help to build good relations between locals and guests.
Every money you spent will directly help in the development of local surroundings, women’s empowerment, environmental conservation, and other activities. So we will like to request you to spend your money wisely.
