Nepal Eco Adventure strives to be an eco-friendly trekking company - they discourage trekkers from using single-use plastic bottles and they bring back all the waste they produce on a trek. The founder, Chhatra, used to be a mountain guide himself before he decided to set up his own company to provide employment opportunities for his community. He regularly invests a portion of his profits to promote education for children in rural areas of Nepal as well.
