Sustainability Policy
sustainability policy

Tourism doesn’t only bring the joy of traveling but also a significant responsibility to respect the place we visit. Traveling is a beautiful experience that remains embedded in the mind forever. However, it’s mandatory that going and touring isn’t done at the expense of the environment. Any trekking agency and the tourists associated with the agency have a duty towards the country they operate. The sustainability policy and the responsibilities towards the touring nation are what Himalayan Exploration Treks emphasize.

Our Sustainability policy and guidelines. 

  • Observe local products and services.
  • Maintain and improve the quality of the socio-cultural and natural environments, which is the basis of tourism (and the local people’s livelihood); and
  • Empower the local communities for sustainable management of tourism.
  • Motivate the staff by paying them a standard scale, which creates a harmonious working environment.
  • A substance such as the use of plastic in our operations is entirely banned.
  • Implement the international code of conduct related to child exploitation of sexual, commercial, or any other form.

Responsible Tourism: Give something back

Eco-Tourism is another word for minimal environmental impact. Himalayan Exploration Treks takes great care to ensure that their treks and tours are free from disruptions to the natural and social-ecological environment. There is a significant focus on appropriately disposing of waste products, and there is a global effort to address the critical problem of environmental pollution comprehensively. Sustainable tourism is what drives our clients and us. Our most profound commitment lies in being an active part of the community and contributing to local Environmental Initiatives. We strongly believe that by working together towards a common goal, we can significantly impact preserving our planet for future generations. It helps to explore and preserve the environment.

Socio-cultural Responsibility is closely related to community-based tourism (CBT) generated in developing countries. Cultural trips are becoming more popular for mainstream’‘soft’ sightseeing and niche markets, emphasizing profoundly engaging with local cultures. We provide an untouchable opportunity to intermingle with the local people with the help of staff and guides employed by the local community. Thіѕ gives a more authentic experience to the tourists. Along with giving them а chance to observe the cultural and religious varieties.

Economic Responsibility concludes by encouraging our valued clients to consume local food products during all treks and travels for the locals’ financial upbringing. It benefits the local communities and allows clients to enjoy the available, unique food items. Also, we support some percent of our profits to community development projects. It has also directly uplifted the living standard of the local livelihoods. Besides, we are always giving top priority to locals for employment opportunities.

Team Building Through the Responsible Tourism

Himalayan Exploration Treks emphasizes the staff and other crew members who form the organization’s backbone. Their effort and support are what keeps the service running smoothly. So, we are indebted to them. We strive to provide the necessary protections such as insurance, good salary, and rescue evacuation. And proper outdoor gear to keep them content. They, in turn, ensure that adequate satisfaction will assure our valued clients. Besides, our company creates a social security fund for the staff and their family in critical economic conditions because of accidents during the trip, natural disasters, etc. We emphasize good education and distribute clothes and school materials for the children. We occasionally give free English Language courses and other relevant training for our staff.
