Minimizing your negative impact on the culturally and ecologically
sensitive areas where we work is a central tenet of Trek Nepal Himalaya
philosophy. As well as making a direct contribution ourselves, we
encourage our guest to support our approach and values whilst staying
with us in Nepal. We (Trek Nepal Himalaya Believe) believe that, in
this way, we can all support each other in securing the future of
these sublime regions and their inhabitants. Trek Nepal Himalaya positive
contribution to the local communities, environment and economy are
carefully considered and implemented. Here are some of the ways in
which we work.
Employment: We have hired and take most of our staff locally and have supported their personal and professional development with required training on a variety of aspects of hospitality. Providing employment in these remote areas supports the local economy, but in addition, our staff work to support local community welfare.
Local Sourcing : According to the location, we either commission new building that leave only the lightest footprints on their setting or we breathe new life into existing, traditional villages houses. We have incorporated local building techniques and styles for our mountain Camp and Cleaning awareness program for local in Great Himalayan Trekking Trail. We use sustainable sources( principally solar) to provide 100 percent of our electricity supply and Hydro Power in villages houses and office we use a combination of electricity supply, solar Lamps, and Candles. Any waste Garbage from our properties is separated with food waste being used as animal feed in the locality. There is no recycling infrastructure in the areas that we operate but, where available, our non recyclable garbage and waste is sorted and provided for recycling. In addition to our no Responsible Staffs Guest and Policy.
In order to respect local customs, we ask any guest who may wish to offer gifts or money, to do through a dedicated fund, Guest contributions fund, in a way that reflects local needs, custom and values system. The areas in which we operate have very strong Dance, Music, Festivals and worship traditions and in each location we have actively supported these tradition, all by including performances in all our guest activities, but also with financial support for costumes, training and transportation. Each of our operations is on a very small scale – and while that limits the number of guests we can receive, we prefer it that way, so we don’t impose ourselves too much on our surroundings, the local communities and resources. Our approach is designed to balance the benefits of local tourism with the ability of guests to experience the very remote and unusual locations in which we operate.
