Responsible Travel and Tourism is synonymous to Responsible Tourism. These two terms are buzz terms in recent Tourism and Travel. Fundamentally, Responsible Tourism or Responsible Travel emphasises on sustainable travel or ecotourism. In Fact modern people are quite indifferent towards the ethical issues such as wildlife, volunteer, sanitation, conservation and many more serious issues.

Likewise, Individual porter will carry maximum 15 – 20 kg . This is relatively lighter weight so that he can take a good care of the individual trekker. The porter will be walking next to the individual trekker and assist a lot I every step of your journey. This is the way of ensuring the safety of each trekker in the Himalayas. If any problem occurs, the individual porter will take care of it and immediately inform it to the leader.
