Whether in the wilderness or front country, Into Wild Himalaya is dedicated to preserving the places where we live and travel.
Into Wild Himalaya takes pride in our commitment to the environment and giving back initiatives.
Our core values reflect our purpose of empowering people and communities to embrace sustainable development through:
- Responsible growth
- Environmental awareness
- Protection of our natural resources
This also means traveling in a way that respects and honors local people, customs, heritage, religions and culture.
We customarily use local guides and support teams, stay at local-owned lodges, guest houses and home-stays, eat in locally-operated cafes and restaurants, and when possible use local products and resources, limit travel and group size and communicate the need for responsible travel practices to our fellow travelers and the communities we serve.
Our range of giving back initiatives is designed to help local people and communities become sustainable and self-sufficient in areas of:
- Education and Health
- Housing and Development
- Employment Opportunities
- Cultural and Environmental Conservation
Into Wild Himalaya adheres to Sustainable Tourism and Business Practices and Leave No Trace Principles and outdoor ethics.

- Travel and Camp on Durable Surfaces
- Dispose of Waste Properly
- Leave What You Find
- Minimize Campfire Impacts
- Respect Wildlife
- Be Considerate of Other Visitors
