We are tremendously concern over the rights of the porters who facilitate travelers’ adventure dreams in the Himalayas. It is our serious-concern that the porters should be paid well and treated equally even in the harsh situation in the remote Himalayas. In case of emergency situation, we give equal rescue facilities as other team members get in the adverse situation in the higher altitude. Besides, we too are concern about Porter Protection Group (IPPG) which works in the field of protecting the rights of porter. In doing so, we recommend all our trekkers in the Himalayas just to keep their luggage under 15 kg so that it can be handled by porters smoothly.
Being human beings, it is our responsibility to protect natural order, to conserve environment, and to love nature. Himalaya region is ecologically very much fragile and hence we try to practice “leave just footprints and take photos” so that future generation will to have chances to experience the beauty of Himalaya region. Respecting natural balance and being sensible towards local environment yields into protecting local cultures as well. Hence, our trip operations tremendously focus on environmental issues in the Himalayas and thereby ecotourism.
Trekking Group Arrangement
Himalayan Pleasure generally provides one leader for the trip operation and Sherpa porters for luggage carrying. It means if there are 4 trekkers there will be one assistance guide. In case of porters there will be one porter for two trekkers. This arrangement helps to carry out the trip smoothly even in the adverse situation. Our trips generally accommodate group of 10 people at a time. Despite this arrangement we can adjust or run the trips over than 10 people at time as well.
The best seasons for travelling in the Himalayas are Autumn and Spring. Apart from these two seasons, there is a possibility of trekking the Himalayas even in the Winter and Summer seasons. In the Winter season, cold slightly affects the trips. But, travelling in the Summer season comes with tremendous rewards for a passionate botanist.
