Eco tourism in Tibet

Ecotourism in Tibet: 

 

The pristine natural Environment of Tibet is one of if not the most important attraction for every domestic and inbound tourist to spare their time and energy to journey into this beautiful place, often known as the “land of snows.” Tibet Plateau is the world’s most complex and intact alpine eco-region with an average altitude of above 4000meters from sea level, it’s worldwide known distinctive culture and tradition of TibetBuddhism and Bon practiced by the localTibetan for centuries, transformed Tibetans to show great compassion towards other living beings and the environment they inhabit. Thanks for this uplifting century-old world view that determined the interdependent relationship between humans and nature. Tibet plateau remained one of the earth’s largest regions with relatively untouched by human activities.

 

Tibet Native staffed 100% of local Tibetans, embracing environmental sustainability criteria in our businesses, has been playing our own role in the preservation of the natural environment in some of the center Tibet’s best-known trekking region, such as Tsurphu ༼ཚུར་ཕུ།༽to Yangpa Chen ༼ཡངས་པ་ཅན།༽ and Gaden ༼དགའ་ལྡན་༽to Samye ༼བསམ་ཡས།༽ trekking route.  

We use 3% of company annual income to support local nature conservation work, we hire local people from the region and pay fair wages, educate them about the importance of environmental protection, and empowering local communities to build, ownership in what they were working for, in March 2019, we launched a 5 day clean-up initiative together with 8 people including 5 local nomads, tracing the road from Gaden to Samye trail, collected over 280kg of garbage along the trek, which is becoming an increasing issue there, polluting river sources from tourist and local unhealthy behaviour of leaving behind plastic bottle, clothing, it is of course only a tiny fraction of the many efforts local peer eco-responsible companies are doing. We are now looking for every opportunity to launch some collective actions, involving schools, private business sectors, to expand the scope of our work bit by bit to add stronger contributions to keep Tibet’s intact environmental beauty to the world, we believe small things, will have a great impact!
