Teahouse-style Social Trekking
We follow a community-based approach to trekking through teahouse-style accommodation, village home-stays, local porter guides, cultural exchanges, support for local service providers, and advocacy for an appreciation not only of nature, but also indigenous cultures. We serve as an ambassador for local communities by facilitating the exchange of goods and services between trekkers and local businesses, like tea houses and village home-stays. Our policy requires trekkers to pay directly to local service providers for their services rendered.
We pride ourselves as one of the region's best operators at the lowest cost possible. You only pay for what you need, really! Our trekking programs are highly affordable, flexible and customizable, and designed to offer you maximum enjoyment and adventure.
