Trip Note

ECO-FRIENDLY:

Every day the world is facing a big issue of environmental pollution and in Nepal as well. Our field staffs are quite conscious about environmental pollution at any time and we encourage to all. We would suggest to our guest to use boiled water or water purification pills than buying a bottle of water, it helps to avoid plastic bottles which can take a long time to disappear. During the trek, if possible you can order same items food in a group which minimises the fuel used and to make a campfire is almost forbidden. We would encourage being a responsible traveller so, just leaving a footprint on the trail and bring out all non-biodegradable which you had. Himalayan Joy Adventures is committed to helping to improve, protect and preserve the natural and cultural beauty of the Himalayan mountain range and Nepal. Join us.
