Responsible travel

  • Learn a few words of Hindi to establish close contacts with local populations.
  • Be patient and keep smiling, more in this country than elsewhere, because here, there is always a solution to everything.
  • Remember to take along a small bag to bring back your waste in the evening to the hotel. Garbage cans are rare in India.
  • Bring the batteries for your devices from home.
  • Water is a scarce resource in many parts of India. Do not get your towels and sheets washed each day in hotels. Try carrying a filled water bottle to avoid accumulating plastic bottles wherever you go.
  • Take with you natural and organic soaps and shampoos. Thus, during a trek, you will not pollute rivers.
  • Reduce your consumption of electricity, and turn off all lights, fans, and AC when you leave your room.
  • The practice of tipping is common. At the end of an excursion or a trip, giving out a tip of around 10% of the total cost of your trip is an important practice. Same is the case in restaurants, where service charge is not included. Some establishments are equipped with a "Tips Box" for all the staff who took care of you.
