WE ARE aware that we have a responsibility to each place we visit and that our trips have an impact on the people, their local community and the environment.
Our event provider, Adventure Peaks use a British leader (dependent on group size) who works in conjunction with local staff. We provide the technical and safety expertise and the local people provide the local knowledge. We learn from each other and regularly provide technical training.
Adventure Peaks organise expeditions and treks to have minimal impact on the environment – we operate on small groups (max 12), discourage the use of wood for fuel, avoid polluting water, remove all litter and where possible and practical, human waste.
They also buy many items from the local community, provided the quality is of an acceptable level, for example food, snacks and base camp equipment.
