Work, work, work – that’s what you do to get yourself to the Himalayas to enjoy a fantastic experience. A vacation or holiday in the Himalayas is not worth skimping on. When it comes to tourism in Nepal, it’s a battle to the bottom concerning price. But what goes down with the price, goes down with quality. We are not low-quality, nor are we exceptionally cheap, but we are reasonable. We work hard to provide you with a Rolls-Royce experience for the price of a Toyota Corolla. We want to keep you safe, nourished and full of life as you journey through the Himalayas, so you take away only the best experiences possible.
If it’s Nepal, Bhutan, India or Tibet, we will provide you with the best we can give. Our founder has handpicked and trained all team members, and our employees are passionate and dedicated to their profession. Our focus is on combining excellent logistical preparation with friendly, skilled leaders and guides to offer you trekking tours that are better than the rest. Our reputation is based on the number of well-run trekking adventures we have organized. It has also been proven by the number of clients who keep returning to us!
To help you choose the adventure that is right for you, we use a comprehensive grading system for each trip to identify its difficulty and provide a ‘when to go’ chart highlighting the best time of year to visit your chosen destination. The itinerary design makes a big difference to your experiences in any country, and it is crucial that it is planned thoroughly to make the most of your trip. Our journeys are carefully designed to take in all of the very best treks and attractions of your chosen destination.
Responsible Adventures makes sure that all trips are set at an appropriate pace, accommodation is charming and well-located and that our trekkers enjoy introductions to local people. We offer opportunities to explore hidden villages, secret footpaths, and unique little cafes – all those locations that only an ‘insider’ could know.

We provide you with daily itineraries for each trip, containing useful information to help you prepare.

WE TRAVEL RESPONSIBLY
As Responsible Adventures plays a part in the world’s largest industry – tourism – we are sensitive to the immense impact large amounts of travel can have on the places we visit. We are committed to our environmental responsibility: we provide low-impact tourism and actively support local conservation and cultural groups. We firmly believe that responsible travel can be an extraordinary tool to connect people from different backgrounds, countries, and cultures, as well as going a long way in supporting local businesses and communities.
SMALL GROUPS, GREAT FRIENDS
People who travel with us tend to be active and enthusiastic, sharing a great curiosity about the world around them. Many people who join our trips are already well-travelled, and some of them have already completed tours with Responsible Adventures, but no matter how much experience they have had everyone with us is a new one.
We guarantee a friendly atmosphere on the trek and cater to all types of customers: friends, couples, single people, and families. Our incredible trip leaders add to the nature of our group treks, joining you for evenings full of laughter and lively conversation over a good meal and drinks. At Responsible Adventures, we take pride in the fact that several of our trekkers become lifelong friends.
YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT
At Responsible Adventures, we take the utmost care with every aspect of your trip. We take into consideration the altitude of the trek, focus on hygienic food preparation within the camp and ensure every potential hazard is addressed. We have extensive experience in organizing treks and hold ourselves to high safety standards (we are practitioners of “Prevention rather than cure,” ensuring that emergencies are extremely rare.
Our expert tour leaders are trained in Wilderness First Aid and put your safety first. On a rare occasion, there is a medical emergency; our tour leaders are fully qualified to provide primary care until the client is transported to a medical facility.
NO MATTER HOW REMOTE, WE BRING THE GOOD LIFE
Even though some of our trips go to very remote places and occasionally include camping, we make sure you enjoy plenty of home comforts. On the camping treks, there is camp staff available at all times, with camp amenities like dining tents and hot Ayurvedic drinks brought to you. Supplementary snacks are provided during walks and meals are enhanced with superfoods and ingredients to provide optimum nutrition. Our attention to detail is just one of the factors that make us different from other tour providers.
WE FOCUS ON WELLNESS
Our chefs are trained to use holistic ingredients and superfoods such as coconut oil, nuts, chia and flax seeds to give you nourishing meals for optimum performance and health during your journey. We ensure you have a healthy start to each day by providing you with a herbal drink, which includes ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties, to get rid of free radicals and energize you for a good part of the day. Eating healthy and nourishing meals gives you a better chance to recover from tiredness, helping you to acclimatize to high altitude. We pride ourselves on providing the most varied and healthiest meals on treks in the Himalayas.
If you share a love for the mountains and remote places and want to achieve your travel goals in an environment with an incredibly dedicated team, we would welcome you to join a Responsible Adventures. Trekking is a wonderfully relaxing and healthy pursuit, giving you the chance to make friends with like-minded people and interact with locals, who will often invite you into their homes for yak butter tea or chang (barley beer). Himalayan natives are caring, generous and often display a flair for mischievous humor – time in their company is usually one of the fondest memories you will take back home.
Our clients have a passion for the great outdoors, and we ensure that the mountain environment is the same when you leave as it was for hundreds of years. When all the conditions are favorable, each member of the group will reach the height of their destination; returning home enriched by a journey of self-discovery, with lifelong memories.
