Mosaic Adventure is an eco-friendly tour operator with an objective to improve, protect and preserve the environment of the Himalayan Mountains. We are members of The International Ecotourism Society, Kathmandu Environmental Education Program (KEEP), Youth Effort for Society (YES) and Youth Campaign for Development (YCD), which are environmental organizations that promote responsible tourism. We are also recommended by responsibletravel.com.
We conduct all our trips with a vigilant eye to avoid any disturbance to the local ecology or way of life. We are committed to an active participation in the Kathmandu Environmental Education Project and other national and local Environmental Initiatives. We continuously strive to make sure traveling with us has the minimum impact on the local environment. We always tell our customers to take a water bottle and purification tablets and make use of natural water resources, this is instead of buying bottles of water that can litter and pollute the mountain environment.
Mosaic Adventure believes that it is possible to operate commercially in the Eco-Tourism Sector of the industry and also to preserve the natural and cultural heritage of an area through promotion of sustainable tourism. In our work, we actively promote and implement this philosophy whenever an opportunity presents itself. We run a non-government organization (CYS) that is committed to providing much-needed health and education facilities to remote areas of Nepal.
We emphasize making extensive use of the available local products and enhance maximum economic benefits to the local communities. In addition to this, we support rural development projects by contributing 10% of our profit generated each trading year, thereby, have directly uplifted the living standard of the local residents and contributed to the national economy of Nepal. On camping trips in remote regions, we buy food from the local villagers and only use locally owned tea houses and hotels.
Since our establishment, our company has always been striving to help develop remote areas of Nepal. We strive to maintain the trend by making a continuous effort in discovering interesting new destinations within the country. Furthermore, we have initiated cleaning campaigns in the nearby villages that involve a lot of local participation. The idea is to raise hygiene and environmental awareness in the villages. Such campaigns also educate the villagers to keep their villages and the surroundings neat and clean.
As a responsible tour company with strong commitments to sustainability, we take strong action to ensure that the welfare of animals is safeguarded. For example: Mosaic Adventure do not run any Elephant Back Safari tour as they are mistreated.
