The development of new, integral and application-oriented models for responsible tourism in the Himalayas is the goal of our Fair Trails Himalayas project. Now the first Fair Trail offers are bookable!

The Fair Trails Himalayas project started in 2017, in the United Nations “International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development”. It is the contribution of Trail Angels for the development of responsible tourism in the countries of the Himalayas. The project is co-financed by the official development cooperation agency of the Republic of Austria, the Austrian Development Agency and implemented together with our partner ENNOVENT.

After intensive preparatory work and two explorations in the northern Annapurna area and the remote Nar Phu region, the time has come: The first offers for the “Snow Leopard Trail”, the first Fair Trail in the Himalayas, are now available for booking! We are particularly pleased that the Austrian Alpine Club dedicates several pages to the “Fair Trails” project in its current issue of Bergauf magazine (pages 56 – 58).
