Community Based Tourism for our Guests
We like to think of you as "Guests" instead of "Clients" or "Customers" because, to us, our guests mean much more than money. Our model is community-based tourism, which means using local, knowledgeable guides, staying in locally-owned accommodation and interacting with those you meet.
The main emphasis of our trips is to experience home grown culture. You stay with the people of the Himalayas and work with them in the fields. If possible, you visit ceremonies or you can also volunteer time for local causes. Our goal is to make bridges between the two worlds so that both guests and locals have a rich cultural experience. We make sure that you understand the culture and do not offend the people you will meet. A percentage of the money from the trips we organise helps support an orphanage in the Indian Himalayas.
