Earthbound Expeditions

Earthbound Expeditions 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. The evident success is that our Trekking tours has achieved obvious rewards in the professional and commercial sense and has positively enhanced the travel and Eco-trekking experience of the Eco Tourist.

All of the Earthbound Expeditions’ staff are locally employed and all our guides are, ensuring a more authentic experience for travellers, as well as sensitivity to local customs and culture. We use local products (food, vegetables, dairy products etc.). We are committed on providing services best available in the industry and make no compromise when it comes to guest’s preferences. Apart from the conventional promotional campaigns, we take pride in our return business.

 

Our Ethical Commitment:

Our company has been striving to open up remote areas of Nepal. We pioneered the first commercial ascents in the “wild routes” to the far West and East of Nepal (Simkot, Bajhang and Khaptad Rara area, Ganesh Himal area) and also specialized in trekking to virgin areas with formidable games and nature watching experiences that till then were inaccessible to the tourists. We strive to maintain the trend by making the 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 to keep their villages and the surroundings neat and clean.
We also involve local communities in remote areas that we travel and trek to. An example of this is Dhading Ganesh Himal area, where we ask local communities for input into our treks and to provide homestay accommodation. Earthbound Expeditions also work closely with some NGOs undertaking independent assessments and interviews with local communities about our lodge development in Dhading are employing local ethnic minority staff there.
We are involved in a number of initiatives and are always looking to develop more. We donate thousands of rupees annually to humanitarian causes to care house / schools and were one of the travel and trekking company in Nepal to offer volunteer travel and treks. Our genuine commitment to Responsible Travel is increasingly well-known and our programs are evolving. Earthbound Expeditions many volunteer trek programs have a positive contribution to the local community in promoting sustainable practices.

We conduct all our treks and tours with a vigilant eye to avoid any disturbance to the local ecology or way of life. We are committed to an active participation in national and local Environmental Initiatives. We continuously strive to make sure traveling with Earthbound Expeditions Trekking in Nepal and elsewhere have minimum impact on the local environment.
