About us...

We develop custom trip plans for individuals and small groups in Nepal that offer immersive experiences and the soft adventure that we are famous for. We are also market leaders in terms of sustainable tourism practice, as you will find out as you start talking to us. Our operation started in 2002, so we have very deep local experience that we use to develop these experiences of a lifetime!

Promoting cultural exchange: Socialtours offers tours and activities that provide travelers with opportunities to learn about local cultures and customs, and to interact with local people. This promotes mutual understanding and respect between people from different backgrounds and helps to break down stereotypes.

Supporting environmental conservation: Socialtours is committed to minimizing its environmental footprint and supporting conservation efforts. It offers eco-friendly tours and activities that promote responsible tourism practices, such as waste reduction and energy conservation.

Fostering social entrepreneurship: Socialtours supports local social entrepreneurs who are working to create positive social and environmental impact in their communities. Through its tours and activities, Socialtours showcases these social enterprises and helps to build their capacity and visibility.

Engaging in advocacy and education: Socialtours engages in advocacy and education initiatives that promote responsible and sustainable tourism practices. It collaborates with local and international organizations to raise awareness about tourism's impact on local communities and the environment, and to promote more responsible and sustainable tourism practices.

Overall, Socialtours' social impact is aligned with the principles of responsible and sustainable tourism, which aim to create positive social, economic, and environmental outcomes for all stakeholders involved in tourism.
