Yak Holidays International strictly adheres to all the tenets of responsible tourism. We ensure that there is adequate economic benefit for local people from your visit to our beautiful country. We arrange trips in ways that enhance the well being of the host communities. And also make positive contributions to conservation of natural and cultural heritages.
“YAK is Extraordinary”, because it is owned by a social entrepreneur, a giant of a man whose ambition and persistence fuels and catalyzes the YAK. Sithar Tamang relishes the unblemished satisfaction of all his guests. For him, tourism is all about uniting conservation, communities and sustainable travel without leaving any footprints behind.
We Promote Responsible Tourism in Bhutan:
We are one of the few travel agents in Bhutan who promote responsible tourism in Bhutan, respecting the ecology and environment as enshrined in the constitution of the nation. Our Government policy mandates that 70% the country’s land needs to be under green cover. We believe that we should provide the visitors to experience the surreal beauty and green wilderness without trying to plunder it.
Avoiding wastes that we usually tend to create along the trekking trails, littering all along which is not proper. At Yak Holidays keep these issues on top of everything. We even clean the trekking and hiking trails in Bhutan twice a year. We are one of the few travel agents in Bhutan who take initiative to keep the environment clean.
And we do buy all the necessary commodities, and local village produce, vegetables, rice and cheese etc. directly from the local farms. We believe that we have the responsibility to help improve the village economy, uplift and sustain itself. The Yaks and horses that we hire during the treks will keep the sustainability of the locals at par. We also try to explain and educate the travelers the local nomadic tradition of the high Himalayas and the prevalent local laws and culture to respect nature and the local environment.
