Ecotourism Partnerships between Himalayan Communities & Dolma Development Fund

Our signature adventure provides a totally unique experience in a hidden valley of the Langtang National Park, Nepal, nestled among the soaring Himalayan mountains on the Tibetan border. Backed by the community, you will exclusively experience their warm hospitality, join their events and learn their timeless culture, customs and crafts. Learn and practice meditation and Buddhism, and explore a previously uncharted trekking route to the roof of the world. All this with a level of comfort and service not to be found for miles around.

We run tours all over Nepal employing the same ethos of community partnership.

Each holiday reinvests in the community through the Dolma Development Fund that invests in local businesses, education, health care and cultural activity. The name - Dolma - comes from the first child to be sponsored for a full education.
We have now expanded to offer special tours to other areas of Nepal that follow the same ethos, with each adventure benefiting local communities through the Dolma Development Fund.
