RESPONSIBLE FLASHPACKING

Flashpacking India brand is committed to operating the flashpacking tours in such a way to ensure we maximize the positive effects of tourism on the local economies, cultures, and the environment whilst minimizing any negative impacts; because Flashpacking tours are not only about the places but also about its people and culture.

We are committed to the sustainability of the environment so that our next generations can experience the same authenticity of the destination.  We teach our suppliers about sustainability and be respectful of cultures and traditions. We also help local NGOs in the Himalayas for the welfare of the local society and to promote the local economy with tourism. To empower women, we generally use women tour guides wherever available. We encourage our travelers for city sightseeing early in the morning to avoid the traffic jams. We advise them to take countryside hotels so that they can be away from the city crowd and can meet with locals to experience real Indian culture and hospitality. We avoid animal rides during our tours like the Elephant rides and we encourage our travelers for minimal use of plastic.

 

Green Tourism can be categorized as a tourism program that is - "Nature-based, ecologically sustainable, where education and interpretation is a major constituent and where local people are benefited."
