Our trekking staffs are well known about the sustainability principles that refer to the environmental, economic, and socio-cultural aspects of tourism development and a suitable balance must be established between these three dimensions to guarantee its long-term sustainability. Before the trip commences, our guide will brief group members on the importance of conservation in the environment as part of our responsible tourism efforts. We frequently participate in and also initiate clean-up campaigns to promote awareness as well as to maintain a clean and healthy living environment.
