Off the Beaten Track

“The Himalayan experience is exhilarating, rewarding and enriching!  Once is not enough is a gross under statement, here there are endless opportunities for discovery!” Extract from a Travellers Journal – The Original Responsible Traveller!

As part of our responsible ethic, we promote new areas and encourage travel to less developed and well known places in order to disperse the economic benefits and environmental impact of tourism. Therefore for every trip to a more frequently visited area, we also promote an “off the beaten track” destination. If you take any of the trips in this section, not only does the local community benefit from your visit, but you will also enjoy seeing less developed and more untouched areas.

There are a variety of trips to suit all tastes, including wilderness trekking, rural home stay hospitality, or those on a quest to explore the peaks of the Himalaya; this section brings you the less seen elements of Nepal. Again, they are listed in order of grading with the easier ones first.

    The responsible travelers is a great thing – particularly in a country where a lot of the other trekking agencies don’t seem to have a high regard for the environment. It is good to know that staff are well looked after and wear uniforms. The staff were excellent and key to our enjoyment of the trek. Rajendra was perfect as a guide in every way he thinks of everything, has all eventualities covered, a great sense of humour & patience
