We are committed to ensuring their safety and well-being during their work with us. We have established guidelines for ethical trekking and urge our clients to treat our porters with the same respect they would expect to receive.

To guarantee our porters' protection from cold, rain, and snow, we provide them with appropriate clothing for the nature of the trip. Our Trekking porters are also fully insured for medical care and accidental insurance. We enforce a maximum weight limit of 25 kgs per porter, as we believe in ethical treatment and do not want to overload them. We take pride in providing employment opportunities for local people and treating them with the utmost respect.

We pay our porters fair wages and allowances, and provide basic accommodations or tents with sleeping gear, along with food and drinks during their work with us. We strive to make their experience as comfortable and safe as possible.

Responsible Tourism

Our trekking company places great emphasis on sustainability principles that encompass the economic, environmental, and socio-cultural aspects of tourism development. We recognize that achieving a balance between these three dimensions is crucial for ensuring long-term sustainability in tourism. To promote responsible tourism, our trekking staff is well-versed in these sustainability principles.

Before each trip, our guide provides a briefing to group members on the importance of environmental conservation as part of our responsible tourism efforts. We aim to raise awareness among our guests of the need to protect the environment and preserve its natural resources. As part of our efforts to maintain a clean and healthy living environment, we frequently participate in and initiate clean-up campaigns. These campaigns not only promote awareness but also contribute to preserving the natural beauty of the areas we visit.

We take our responsibility as a tourism operator seriously and strive to minimize our environmental impact while promoting the economic, and socio-cultural development of the communities we operate in. Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in our actions, and we hope to inspire our guests to adopt sustainable practices and support responsible tourism initiatives.
