Eco Holiday Asia offers a wide range of options for an eco-friendly trip in Nepal, from cooking classes to treks. The main draw is, of course, trekking, and they do it with a mind for environmentalism. To reduce waste, they carry only reusable bags. To decrease deforestation, they only build gas fires. Eco Holiday Asia aims not only to be environmentally friendly, but culturally pervasive as well. Every trek includes at least one meal home cooked by a local family and the opportunity of authentic cultural exchange. These are the basics, but you also have the option to enrich your expedition with homestays and volunteer work if you so choose.
One of Eco Holiday Asia’s main goals is to improve the lives of the local people. They use tourism as a tool for positive change by inviting foreigners with expertise in various facets of income generation, sanitation, health, education, farming, and more, to share their knowledge and help improve the lives of the indigenous peoples.
