Why Associate with Highlander
Highlander stands for fair and eco-friendly traveling. We take a good care of our staff and are definitely a lot more than just a trekking company.
Working condition for staff
Our staff is fully covered with medical insurance.
In order to be able to maintain highly competent and professional staff, we are paying the salaries on a scale higher than average.
We realize that preserving our nature and environment is most important for the future of our country and the whole world.
Our staff is well advised on environmental issues and will always do their best to reduce damage to the environment to the minimal. We only leave biodegradable garbage behind, even though this means additional incurring costs for us. But since we are looking at the longevity of the tourism sector, we consider this as an investment for our future generation.
Highlander does not use firewood for cooking to preserve the forests.
We are sponsoring a recycling project in the Kathmandu Valley.
Well aware of the impact trekking has on the rural areas as well as the established routes, we have committed ourselves to giving back to the communities where we travel.
Highlander is extending its hands to organise free mobile health camps in the remote areas of Nepal, and is also working to support community and public schools and provide educational opportunities to children from rural and marginalized backgrounds.
Likewise, Highlander is actively engaged in environmental awareness raising programs. We also appeal to our friends/guests to join us in the noble cause and support the communities and individuals in need.
