We stand for Community Engagement and Development, Cultural Preservation very closely in our travel region.
The need for responsible tourism stems from awareness – awareness of environmental issues, degrading qualities of life support system. Tourism on a global scale is one of the key factors in environmental change. Awareness of environmental issues however is causing a massive transformation in tourism with travellers and locals seeking ways of building constituencies with the shared goal of making tourism sustainable and responsible.
Tourism in Nepal, despite its importance is not sustainable. Nepal has neither an effective waste management program nor strong developmental attributes and has suffered from long periods of political instability. Given these aspects, Responsible tourism is crucial to ensuring the sustainability of tourism is obvious. Responsible tourism divides costs and benefits across all actors without depending solely on the government enabling individuals and businesses as well as communities to do their part. This means greater benefits to both the hosts as well as to the tourists. Responsible tourism, with its focus on sustainability and sustainable development has the potential to connect many smaller ideas together.
