We are members of KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Program), YES (Youth Effort for Society), YCD (Youth Campaign for Development), which are environmental organizations that promote responsible tourism in Nepal.

Ecological/Environmental Impact:

We conduct all our trips with a vigilant eye to avoid any disturbance to the local ecology or way of life. We are committed to an active participation in the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project and other national and local Environmental Initiatives. We continuously strive to make sure traveling with us and elsewhere have minimum impact on the local environment.

Social/Cultural Impact:

Beside The Himalayan believes that it is possible to operate commercially in the Eco-Tourism Sector of the industry and also preserve the natural and cultural heritage of an area through promotion of sustainable tourism. In our work, we actively promote and implement this philosophy whenever an opportunity presents. We run a non-government organization that is committed to providing the much needed health and education facilities to remote areas of Nepal.

Economic Impact:

We emphasize on making extensive use of the available local products and enhance maximum economic benefits to the local communities. In addition, we support rural development projects by contributing 10% of our profit generated each trading year, thereby, have directly uplifted the living standard of the local residents and contributed to the national economy of Nepal and its neighbors.

Innovative Practices:

Since our establishment, our company has been striving to help develop remote areas of Nepal. We strive to maintain the trend by making continuous effort in discovering interesting new destinations within the country. Furthermore, we have initiated cleaning campaigns in the nearby villages that involve a lot of local participation. The idea is to raise hygiene and environmental awareness in the villagers. Such campaigns also educate the villagers keep their villages and the surroundings neat and clean.
