trekkers and nature lovers
- In your trek, you will come in contact with many
village schools. Please communicate your conservation
ideas, knowledge and experience with the local school
teachers so that a multiplier effect of conservation
messages could be radiated to all the children. If
possible, please also try to make the children know how
to respect nature and natural resources.
- Never encourage children to beg. It might give you
momentary satisfaction but the begging child could also
turn a professional beggar tomorrow.
- Try to be friendly with your porters and guides. You
will enjoy your trip more.
- While taking photographs be sure that you are not
intruding onto public privacy.
- Respect the villagers and their traditions. In turn
they will give you warm hospitality.
- When you trek, ultimately you enter wilderness. There
you are alone with your porters and the fragile nature.
The slightest negligence and misunderstanding on your
part can directly have a jarring cumulative impact on the
delicate balance of nature. Please do not spoil this
natural heritage by thoughtless negligence.
- Carry enough kerosene or fuel for your cooking. Never
buy fuel wood from the villagers It will encourage
villagers to cut down more trees and stock them
- We discourage the use of camp - fires If you really
need one, you can ask your porters to collect dead
branches and twigs from the ground. Be sure the fire is
out and the refuse is buried before leaving the camp-
- Never buy any wildlife trophies animal products from
the local poachers.
- Do not collect any wild flowers, plants, fossils,
orchids, rocks, etc. unless you have the permission from
the concerned office for scientific research.
- Cutting trees, shooting wildlife and fishing without
licences is strictly prohibited.
- Always camp at the prescribed sites. If there is no
arrangement as such, then camp on open ground or on the
bank of a river. Do not camp inside a bush cutting away
branches of trees.
- Never pollute the clear mountain water or litter the
path with cigarette butts, tin cans, toilet papers, etc.
Please bury them.
- Do not mark initials on trees and rocks. Nature is
more beautiful when left undefiled by human hands.
- In some areas, local communities, have established
their own conservation practices. Please make an effort
to understand them and to observe them.
Finally, we sincerely request you to enlighten your
porters, sherpas, guides, villagers to respect nature and how to
conserve it. With your help, our natural beauty will be alive for
generations In turn, Nepal's gift to you will be vibrant living
