Responsible Tourism

 Since the inception of our company- Responsible Treks- We have concentrated on integrating and applying responsible practice to our company ethos. Through practising responsible tourism we realised that we can minimise the impact of tourism on the environment and maximise employment. This also generates income opportunities for local communities. 

Our Mission- "Travel & Discover: is to travel in a way that conserves the area we visit and brings positive changes to the local. 

Before the devasting earthquake Responsible Treks was only working on tourism aspects. Immediately after the Gorkha eathquake in 25 April-2015 our focus was on getting relief to the remote mountain areas. Although our efforts were relatively small the impact very quickly made a major improvement to many victims lives. However our efforts in relied work highlighted how unprepared Nepal was and still is to cope with such a tragedy. 

Following our relief efforts and seeing the need to change we have decided to create a Respnsible Foundation in Nepal. This Foundation is being created to help in the massive rebuilding and subsequent future development of Nepal. Going forward every trip made through Responsible Treks will help educate and empower the people of the remote Himalayas in Nepal. 

We will support and encourage positive change in our homeland. We will concentrate our effort in the following areas:

  • Relief Aid
  • Medical Services
  • Cultural and Heritage Preservation
  • Education
  • Eco-Tourism
