Eco Tourism In Nepal

Eco Tourism in Nepal

Mission Eco Trek is very conscious about the preservation of Eco tourism and environment. Eco tourism focuses on local cultures, wilderness adventures, personal growth and learning new ways to live on green planet. We believe in those travel destinations where the flora, fauna, and cultural heritage are the primary attractions. Our Eco Treks practice responsible Green tourism which includes programs that minimize the adverse effects of traditional tourism on the natural environment and enhance the cultural integrity of local people. Therefore, in addition to evaluating environmental and cultural factors, plans by hospitality providers to promote recycling, energy efficiency, water re-use, and the creation of economic opportunities for local communities are some of Eco Tourism's objectives.

In numerous places, trekking groups have left littered trails and degraded forest in their wake. Against this alarming backdrop, the practice of ecologically friendly-tourism has been gaining increased momentum – both in Nepal and around the World. Our Eco Tours approach to tourism seeks not only to preserve the environment and culture of a tourist destination but also to be of benefit to the local People. By fostering environmental awareness, both among locals & Eco Trekkers and by linking tourism to social and economic development, it is possible to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of an area through the promotion of sustainable tourism. This not only enhances the positive experience of those on holiday it also helps to increase the standard of living of the local residents. Such a lot has been said about Eco friendly trekking and tourism and no doubt a lot more will be. We can proudly say without hesitation that we have led the way in responsible Trek and tours to our beloved country.

What is Green Tourism?

Anything you wish to call it 'green tourism' or 'sustainable tourism’ or ‘eco-tourism’ but the definition remains same; environmental-friendly tourism that cherishes not destroys. Green or Sustainable Tourism has been described as “managing tourism’s impacts on the environment, communities and the economy to make sure that the effects are positive rather than negative for the benefit of future generations”. As far as we are concerned, green tourism is about creating new opportunities for tourism and encouraging the development of existing tourism enterprises with minimum impact on wildlife and the environment. We believe that sustainable green tourism makes important sense for the long term, and taps into a growing demand for holidays that leave the smallest possible 'footprint' on the environment and local communities.

In today’s world where concern and scientific evidence grows daily about global warming and the human race's generally harmful effects on the planet, the Green sustainable environmentally-aware tourist can only increase in number. You'll need heating, lighting, food, information, transport and a whole range of services but as an environmentally conscious traveller you can minimize the negative impact on environment by considering different methods. As a responsible tour operator we are aware of environmental factor and our endeavours is always to go Green. Going green is not about reducing the quality of any of our services; looking after the environment is about doing more with less.

Testimonials

Two weeks holiday in Nepal with Mission Eco-Trek

My wife and I took a 2 week tour in Nepal with Mission Eco-Trek in Feb 2011 and had a fantastic time. Mission Eco-Trek provided the very highest caliber guides and Ram Kumar (the proprietor) personally made sure that everything went smoothly. When storms caused our original flights to be cancelled and then cancelled for a second time, he graciously accommodated our changes at no extra cost. The cost was reasonable and the services provided were exceptional -even beyond what we had expected from the contract....

Namaste!
