Travelife is a leading training, management and certification initiative for tourism companies committed to reaching sustainability.
Founded in 2007, the Travelife Sustainability System is an initiative dedicated to promoting sustainable practices within the travel and tourism industry.
The Travelife methodology was developed during the EU supported LIFE project, based on sustainability management concepts developed by UNEP, the Tour Operators Initiative for Sustainable Tourism Development (TOI) and earlier experiences of ANVR and ABTA.
About Explore Himalaya Travel & Adventure:
Explore Himalaya Travel and Adventure works to preserve the environmental sustainability at all levels of its operations. As our core activities involve exploring the fragile terrain and cultural heritage sites, sustainable practices have always been our guiding principle. We aim to incorporate responsible best practices into our overall business activities to improve the environmental, social and economic aspects of the area in which we operate. While doing so, we also help our clients and expect same commitment from our partners and suppliers in being sustainable.
Our Sustainability Policy is based upon the following principles:
Explore Himalaya Travel and Adventure is a Travelife certified company. Understanding the impact on the tourism industry in Nepal, we have aligned our operations to follow Travelife’s recommendations for sustainable tourism. Our company is audited regularly in this regard and it gives us great pleasure to announce that we have completed the last audit at the end of 2022 successfully, and we remain Travelife Certified until the next audit in 2025.
We find it very important that our travelling contributes to the preservation of Nepal’s fragile and beautiful nature. We encourage Kipling Travels and Explore Himalaya to start working with different tea-houses / lodges and hotels on sustainability initiatives- like waste recycling, solar heating etc.
We work with the motto "Tourism for Development". Explore Himalaya Community Service Project was conceived to empower underprivileged segments of Nepal.
