Responsible Tourism

The tourism boom in Nepal is a mixed blessing. It has generated a sizeable share of Nepal’s foreign currency revenue but only a few have experienced an improvement in their standard of living. In fact, for many communities, influx of visitors has come at a considerable cost.

In numerous places, trekking groups have littered trails and degraded forests. Against this alarming backdrop, the practice of ecologically friendly-tourism has been gaining increased momentum – both in Nepal and around the World. Our approach to tourism seeks not only to preserve environment and culture of tourist destination but also to benefit the local population by fostering environmental awareness among both locals and visitors. By linking tourism to social and economic development, it is possible to preserve natural and cultural heritage of an area through promotion of sustainable tourism. This not only enhances positive experiences of those on holiday but also helps to raise the living standard of the local residents. Nature Trail promotes environmentally friendly tourism and, along with a few other local companies, has led the way in responsible tours of our country.

Is Nepal Safe to Travel

A recurring question, perhaps fuelled by poor journalism or by out-of-date advice from Governments, is ‘Is it safe to travel in Nepal ?

The short answer is yes, it is very safe in fact. Nepal feels more safe than most other countries around the globe, possibly due to the the religious nature of the people and their natural kindness. Over the past 10 years Nepal has enjoyed a growing fascination to visit from travellers from all over the world. The People are very hospitable. The Nepalese accept that tourism is a mainstay of the economy, and are very welcoming. This applies to all sections and political groups: even during the Maoist hostilities of the early 21st century there were very few cases of any hostility towards visitors and the Maoist-led government declared 2011 to be ‘Visit Nepal Year’.

Although there are few cases of deaths and crimes of tourists the government and local authorities of Nepal are trying every effort to make the Nepal safer for tourists from all over the world. The Nepali government has not banned trekking by individuals without a guide. This was a hoax created by TAAN. Currently all trekkers are free to go independently, no guide is required. Trekking is still allowed on the main teahouse trekking routes (Everest, Annapurna and Langtang / Helambu) and TAAN was trying to manipulate the government into banning solo trekking under the banner of Safety, which would have been very good for their members, Trekkers still require trekking staff in restricted areas, such as Upper Mustang, Dolpo and Manaslu (At least for the moment)

Conclusion:
Nepal is comfortable and safe destination for all nationalities in the World.
