You may be perfectly able to carry your own bag or may feel uncomfortable at the idea of having someone carry your bag for you, remember that carrying loads is a way of life in the Himalayas and for a minimal amount you will be enabling someone to put food on their family’s table.
Visit Himalaya Treks make sure all our porters are protected by warm gear, especially when on an adventure trip. We also provide them with sleeping bags, sleeping mattresses and a tent on camping trekking. Porters are hard workers and we pay well for their work.
Our effort for minimum environmental impact
We make sure all our trash, including bottles and cans from goods consumed is properly managed. On camping trips, all our activities are designed to have the minimum of impacts on the environment. We believe to leave only footprints behind us whenever trekking in the wilder and higher elevations. Even all the papers and materials used in our office in Kathmandu are also environment friendly.

We strictly believe in practicing responsible tourism and all our trekking staffs have been strictly following this very module. Responsible Tourism
