At Himalayan Ecotourism we are driven by our mission to “bring Himalayan rural communities on a sustainable development path, with conservation of the Himalayan ecosystems as a means to meet well-being”.
We believe that conservation is primarily the matter of the local communities. Hence, we consider empowerment and awareness of the locals of utmost importance. Working as a social enterprise allows us to bring the locals as the main stakeholders of their own development, and to sustain our effort towards conservation.
Our ecotourism activities are something we do in order to sustain ourselves economically and financially and to network with the global community about our cause. It is not what our “social enterprise” status is limited to. Our slogan is “creating joy and sustainability in the Himalayas” which perfectly captures what we aim to do.
