Much as the secluded nook, that houses the Camp, drowns the din and the crowds away, it is still easily connected to the market centre of Chopta, 2 kms away, that is a 20-minute walk or a 5-minute drive away and also serves an anchor point for many walking and trekking trails that wind and streak through stunning flora and fauna and offer breath-taking views of the Himalayas!

Responsible Travel

We believe that our clients have an important role to play as well, with each person ultimately determining the overall impact of the group in the area visited. The following are some ideas you might like to consider:

Economic:

  • Buy locally made crafts and support local skills to encourage the positive sides of tourism.
  • Consider tipping a reasonable amount for good service.
  • Bargaining is an accepted practice in all of the countries we visit- but do so in a good humour and bear in mind the amount of money you are haggling over!
  • Think carefully about giving money to beggars, it is often more effective to give money to local charity to reduce reliance and expectation.

Social:

  • Learn some words of the local language, this is appreciated and often results in getting more out of the experience.
  • Ask for permission before taking photographs out of respect for the local people.
  • Enjoy the areas you visit but, if possible, try and leave in a better state than you found them in.
  • Respect the local laws, customs and cultural beliefs.
  • Observe the dress code of the area and be aware of differences in social behaviour and norms.
  • Do not buy ancient artefacts or souvenirs made from endangered species (eg ivory, animal skins).

Environment:

  • Try not to damage any plants you see on the trail.
  • Wild animals should not be touched, fed or disturbed and do not encourage local people to parade animals.
  • Ask permission before using a village well or pump.
  • Please bury all paper away from a water source (30m) and please use toilet facilities if they exist.
  • Our policy is to carry out all non biodegradable rubbish, if any is left behind in the morning, please bring to the guides attention.
  • Bring along environment friendly detergents and shampoos and use as little as possible to keep fresh water supplies free from pollution. Do all washing away from flowing water.
  • Be economical in using fresh water for showering and washing as often they are in short supply.
  • Use dustbins, where ever provided and never throw non bio degradable waste in the outdoors. We’ll highly appreciate if you bring all litter back to towns/ cities for proper disposal.
