ENVIRONMENT & SUSTAINABILITY

We have policies in place to manage our sustainability and environmental impact.

We abide by a strict environmental 'Leave No Trace policy during all our tours.

We promote the use of reusable bottles to reduce single-use plastic.

To go paper-free, all the correspondence will be done via digital platforms, and all necessary information, such as the trip dossier, packing lists etc., will be shared via email.

We guide and encourage our guests to pack with care as lightening the luggage reduces the carbon footprint.

During the trek, all our campsites are eco-friendly, and the kitchen crew don't use wood for cooking.

During our trips, we keep erosion to a minimum and are mindful of water pollution.

We encourage our guests to make sure any souvenirs purchased are sustainable to ensure artefacts and products are not made from endangered species and hardwoods.

For this trek, we follow CKNP (Central Karakorum National Park) recommendations and work closely with local authorities to dispose of the waste properly at the end of the expedition.

SOCIAL IMPACT

We take steps to have a positive impact on our community.

We encourage our clients to buy local products and eat in local (family-owned) restaurants. We support the creation of micro and small enterprises.

We employ local people, including local guides, transport services from businesses owned by local people, and local support staff (porters, cooks, porter Sardar etc.).

We collect the necessary information regarding local customs and traditions. We share information with the group members before & during the trip.

We always try and give something back. Whether it is a pair of old walking boots, a guest giving to a porter, school supplies for local communities, or a donation to charity; every generous gift help preserve the natural wonders of our world. We sponsor 25 deserving students at AL-Mahad Public School Yugo, Khaplu, Baltistan – Pakistan.

For this trek, we pay the CKNP (Central Karakorum National Park) trekking fee, with goes towards the maintenance of the trail & well-being of the community.
