Being in this sector of trekking and tourism, we carry some responsibilities on our shoulders to the local community, ecology, and nature. Hence, we conduct or involve in some cleanliness campaign, awareness programs, tree plantation activities, and much more. We also conduct some community outreach activities.
We the Accent Himalaya focus on protecting the environment by encouraging not using plastic stuff which has an adverse impact on the environment. So, we promote the use of local handmade stuff.
Some of the few environmental policies we follow are:
- At the office of Accent Himalaya, we only use energy efficient bulbs and turn off when it is not necessary. And before going to bed we ensure that all the switches are off and we also turn off the computer when they are not in use.
- We have started working online as to minimize paper use as for brochures which helps protect the environment by consuming less paper.
- To protect the forest we use gas or kerosene fuels for cooking. Now, slowly we are shifting it to electricity.
- To throw waste material dustbin is provided. So, you can throw rubbish in the bins. You are not allowed to litter. At the high altitude, there are some places where the waste is dumped so you are given the bin where you can throw the waste material.
- We suggest every trekker carry a re-useable product like own water bottle so you can use it repeatedly. Using plastic water bottle again and again and throwing in the open space is harmful to the environment.
- We always clean the base camp before leaving and encourage other campers to do so.
- You are encouraged to use sanitizers instead of soap as it pollutes the water resources.
- Our employees of the company cautiously use the less water while bathing and they do not waste much water.
- Instead of buying plastic water bottle we advise you to carry your own water bottle where we will be providing you with boiled water or filtered water during your trek in the remote region.
- Cultural Responsibility and respect for Each Other’s Country
Cultural and religious issues are sensitive as lack of cultural knowledge may bring offense. So as to minimize the cultural shock, Accent Himalaya provides cultural guidelines to our guests. We also suggest our guests read social and cultural etiquettes before visiting any places. Nepalese people highly value foreign culture and we recommend our visitors to respect the local culture as every community has their own typical culture.
Here are some of the lists where you can go through it:
- In the religious places like temples, monasteries and public places, we suggest you wear decent clothes as wearing too short and transparent clothes are not thought decent.
- Some places like temples, monasteries are restricted to photography. So, we suggest you consult with the guides before taking photographs in such places.
- Accent Himalaya doesn’t discriminate any people in terms of sex, race, age, nationality, social status and so on. We respect every individual and we suggest you do the same.
- In the remote areas and religious places, holding the hand of the spouse, hugging or kissing each other is not thought decent. So, we discourage you from doing so.
- Beggars in the towns are common in the countries like Nepal and India. Hence, we advise you not to donate them directly as your donation doesn’t bring any changes in them. If you are willing to donate - there are many social organizations where you can donate to help bring changes in people’s lives.
Our Community and Social Responsibility
Accent Himalayan fully supports the people who are living in poverty. We have been working closely with the organization called People Awareness Youth Society where we donate the certain portion of our annual profit which will be spent for constructing schools and hiring better teachers to educate children in the remote areas.
We also help other organizations who are working in the field of education, mainly in the remote areas because we believe that the changes are possible only through education. So, let’s help together to eradicate illiteracy and poverty from this beautiful country.
In northern Dhading of central Nepal, Accent Himalaya helps the people of Slyankot village in promoting the school by educating the children.
