Responsbile Travel Tips For Nepal

We are passionate about sharing tips anyone can use to travel more responsibly. Here are some easy ways you can travel sustainably in Nepal. 1. Say no to plastic Most of Nepal’s water is not safe to drink. This means you’ll most likely purchase bottled waters. Avoid single-use plastic by packing a Steripen to purify your water in 90 seconds. We’ve used ours during the entire Everest Base Camp trek. 2. Bring all your trash with you If you’re going trekking, be mindful of your waste. Carry a bag where you can collect all your garbage and even pick up some of the trash scattered around the trails. 3. Be considerate Before you go to Nepal, read up on the traditions, culture, religion and customs of the country so you know what is appropriate and inappropriate behaviors. Dress appropriately and cover your shoulders and knees in temples and holy places. 4. Support locals Support locals by eating at small restaurants and purchasing handicrafts created by local artisans. Book with locally operated trekking and tour companies. 5. Always ask permission When you’re taking photos, be sure to ask for permission before training your camera on someone, especially when it comes to children. 6. Avoid elephant rides In Chitwan National Park, it’s very common to see elephant riding. We know this is detrimental to the animals as they are not meant to be ridden. Instead of the elephant rides, opt to walk or take the jeep safari.
