It’s difficult to think of anything which would have improved the trip. In my view it was a great success and very well organised

Responsible Tourism

The Mountain Company is committed to adopting a responsible attitude to the areas we visit.

Our responsible tourism policy aims to ensure that The Mountain Company and its clients act in a way that is socially, environmentally and culturally sound. If you have any suggestions or comments regarding our Responsible Tourism policy, please get in contact with us.

The Mountain Company’s Responsible Tourism policy

All areas of our operations are planned with responsible tourism in mind and we require our business partners to support this vision. Porter welfare is a top priority, we follow the International Porter Protection five guidelines and have demonstrated our support by becoming one of their financial sponsors.

The Mountain Company is an accredited trek operator in the Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) Alliance. GHT Alliance is a group of organisations and individuals who voluntarily adopt their Codes of Conduct, one Code has been developed for visitors and another for operators organising treks in the Himalaya.

The Mountain Company has been selected as a Responsible Travel Partner to the International Mountain Explorers Connection (IMEC) and we work closely with their Kilimanjaro Porters Assistance Project (KPAP) in Moshe.

Appropriate behaviour is encouraged by providing Trip Dossiers with sections on social and cultural awareness. We believe that our clients have an important role to play as well, with each person ultimately determining the overall impact of the group in the area visited.

To find out more about how you can have a positive affect on the communities we visit, read the Responsible Travel section in our Information Centre.
