                                Every day, the global challenge of environmental pollution persists, and Nepal is no exception. Our field staff is highly conscientious about environmental issues, and we actively promote awareness. We recommend to our guests the use of boiled water or water purification pills instead of purchasing bottled water. This choice not only helps in avoiding the use of plastic bottles, which take a considerable amount of time to decompose, but also contributes to minimizing waste.

                                While trekking, consider ordering the same food items as a group to reduce fuel consumption. Furthermore, it is essential to note that making a campfire is strongly discouraged. We advocate for responsible travel practices, urging travelers to leave only footprints on the trail and ensure the removal of all non-biodegradable items brought along. Let's collectively work towards preserving the environment for future generations.
