Responsible Tourism

  • We have been implementing a tree planting campaigns at our lodge and in the surrounding areas. We encourage visitors to at least plant a tree while at our lodge to promote the environmental conservation campaign.
  • We take visitors to learn about the lives of the local population, their farming activities and how community tourism is directly benefitting villagers. Local communities are invited to sell their locally made handcrafts to our guests.
  • We work directly with local guides on village walks. This helps tourists attain the most authentic experience while simultaneously giving back to the community.
