Giving Back to the Local Community
Along with its objective to specialise as an adventure and cultural tour operator, Himalayan Legend Trek (P) ltd is committed to serving the nation by giving back to its local communities. To enrich this objective, Himalayan Legend Trek (P) ltd has initiated a solely private project with the motto; “Development through Tourism ”, which is aimed to help rural people of Nepal benefit from tourism. This program assists the less fortunate people especially in the rural part of the country through different forms of community service projects. We want to contribute a part of our profit to support this project and we also hope to get contributions from tourist groups, individuals, national and international institutions, who seek to make a meaningful contribution towards Nepal’s Rural Communities and help the country take the necessary steps to promote and engage in sustainable development.
The wonderful environment of the Himalayas is also extremely fragile. The rise in population density and the increasing number of trekkers threatens to destroy the very beauty which attracts us in the first place. At Himalayan Legend Trek (P) ltd, we are extremely environmentally conscious and aim to minimize the ways in which we negatively impact our environment.
As deforestation is one of greatest environmental threats, we do not have camp fires and use kerosene for cooking as an alternative fuel to wood. We also discourage trekkers from using wood-fuelled hot showers in lodges along the way. Many lodges, however, now provide solar power heated showers, a far more eco-friendly alternative.
Garbage disposal is another major problem and some of the busier trails can, at times, appear strewn with litter. Our staff members are well motivated towards eco-friendly practices. We carry back all our garbage, except the ones that can be safely and easily disposed of by burning at the campsite.
Our aim is to help protect and preserve this beautiful environment for future generations of trekkers to enjoy.
Care for Porters & Staff
We ensure that all porters and all other staff going above the tree line are provided with adequate clothing and equipment. We are the first ever company to supply high-altitude porters with crampons. We provide life insurance and emergency helicopter evacuation for our staff. We run the trekking agency according to the guidelines of the International Porter Protection Group (IPPG – www.ippg.net).
