Our core benefits and values, Responsible Tourism

We at Royal Mountain Travel have experienced the recent change in trends in Nepalese tourism. There have been drastic changes in the concepts, definitions, scopes and objectives of tourism in Nepal during these years. Thanks to globalization and modern technologies, these have played a vital role to drag the primitive and narrow concept of tourism into much wider realms.

The scope of tourism, at present, has successfully extended its reach. In our opinion, today’s tourism entrepreneurs must promote the products that largely involve the participation of local communities. In other words Responsible Tourism must be kept as an uppermost core value.

As the Chinese Philosopher Lao-Tzu said “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. We at Royal Mountain Travel have already started to introduce these local products and initiatives to our valued customers.

Homestays in Panauti are a good example of how we are working with the women in the community to provide good quality accommodation in family homes. Staying with the family, guests can get an insight into the typical life of people in Nepal as well as seeing the sights of this impressive little historic town. A perfect example of responsible tourism

We seek to offer visitors something a little different. Whether this is staying in historic areas of the city or in a monastery, guests are encouraged to experience a little of the ‘real’ Nepal.

In addition to promoting responsible tourism, we are also very actively involved in charities that help in a number of projects such as managing Kiran Namaste, a Dutch charity that is helping women and children in Kathmandu.

We are also supporting Rural Assistance Nepal (RAN), a UK registered charity that works with a number of schools and a hospital in rural Nepal. Last but not the least we are supporting teachers, have built classrooms and have provided computers for schools and we try to encourage their associates to help where they can.
