Kingdom of Bhutan: The only country in the world with a NEGATIVE CARBON FOOTPRINT, you will discover the Country from West to East ...Our objective is to offer an experience based on the Six Senses which transcends the five senses of sight, sound, smell, taste and touch so that travelers can discover the sixth sense, a sense of immersion, for a larger experience than life. Explore the country, layer by layer. Let yourself be deeply permeated by the cultural diversity and the sixth sense of the local communities that cross regional destinationsGOOD TRIP, it starts here ...Then you will continue with Nepal for a Fauna and Flora program, Ethnic Encounters, Culture and Sustainable Tourism… In two words to give you an idea of ​​this trip: adventure and sustainable tourism. The objective is to make you discover Nepal (with an emphasis on the jungle part) by being as close as possible to the local population and nature, and to help the surrounding villages of the "Bardia National Park" to bring our share of the challenge of conserving this priceless gem of the ecosystem. The inhabitants of the Nepalese jungle: the royal Bengal tiger, the Asian elephant, the one-horned rhino, among others, a trio rarely found in the same national park that you can discover during jeep safaris, on backpacks elephant, floating or even on foot. Bardia is located in the heart of the Terai plain, inhabited by the Tharu ethnic group. The Tharu arrived here two centuries ago. They call themselves "the people of the forest". They are warm and welcoming people with a very lively and complex culture close to nature. They are happy to meet you in advance.Why Nepal? Nepal is a very safe country to travelWhatever you're looking for on a trip, Nepal has an answer for you. Wild nature (Himalayas, wild rivers, jungles...), ancient culture and traditions, the nicest people in the world, extreme activities (hiking, white water sports, jungle safaris...) and thousands of small details that will change a trip into an unforgettable experience bringing you a new insight into yourself.Nepal is mostly known for its trekking possibilities but, even if we won't miss a small detour through the mountains, we propose you to discover another very authentic and wild side of this incredible country: the jungle.Nepal is a steep country that starts in the south with the Terai plain (169 m) and rises to the highest mountain in the world in the north (8850 m).The Bardia National Park is located in the plain where a very rich ecosystem still exists. Here you will find Asian elephants, horned rhinos, numerous species of deer, 250 species of birds, monkeys (macacas and langurs), crocodiles, otters, turtles, the rare Ganga dolphin, leopards and the famous Royal Bengal tiger.Visitors can visit this national park by different means: by elephant, jeep, inflatable canoe and... on foot. Walking safaris are most interesting because they offer the best opportunities to see animals in their environment. It is not as dangerous as you might think, wild animals are guided by their instincts and by nature they will try to escape from man. People are not an option on their menu. You may read or hear many things that are wrong or exaggerated in the media, transformed or taken out of context. In Bardia National Park, you are cared for by trained local wildlife professionals who know the jungle, the plants and animals, their territories and habits. For the past 15 years, the park has been visited by an average of 4000 visitors each year and no tourist has ever been in danger.We promise you an unforgettable experience...Sustainable tourism :Your budget is invested in a remote region.Bardia is a region far from the economic poles of the country and offers few opportunities to the local population to improve their standard of living. Until now, only a few backpackers (4000 in 2001) used to reach Bardia to travel the long distance from Kathmandu to Delhi.The houses are made of wood and adobe. The local population survives mainly thanks to agriculture.Agriculture and wildlife are not good neighbours and there are many problems: elephants or deer eating crops, tigers killing cattle.An intelligent system is already in place: the government has created the "buffer zone system". Nature conservation is only possible with the participation of the local population. Their involvement is only possible if they benefit from the national park.The villages, located directly on the boundary of the park, are grouped into associations run by the local people. They decide on their own community projects and programmes (social, education, urban planning, etc.).In addition, each association has a small part of the forest where the inhabitants can, for a small fee, get what they need to stay out of the national park.When you visit Bardia National Park, 50% of the price of your permit goes to these local associations. It is therefore clear to the villagers that nature is more valuable if it is not touched.When you take part in our "jungle trip", you directly impact this system in which the inhabitants decide themselves and participate in the protection of their nature. It's a good idea, but it only works if tourists come to visit the place, which was not really the case during the last years of insurrection (which ended in 2006).Our direct involvement:In addition to its direct impact on the economy of the village (everything is bought locally, the staff is local...), Racy Shade Resort and the participants of the jungle trip in Nepal are directly involved in improving the local standard of living in the village of Takurdwara (right). next to the entrance of the national park) in different ways:- Donation of clothes. Before they leave, participants are informed that they can take old clothes from their cupboards and give them to Bardia for the poorest.- Donation of medicines: at the end of the trip, participants can leave unused medicines which will be sorted and given to the local health centre who will distribute them for free.These gifts will be distributed by the local association "Thakurdwara Community Forest".

With the family for a week in the land of the Thunder Dragon

Bhutan

A trip to Bhutan is a silk adventure. Of course, it is a trip that must be entirely organized in advance and that presupposes being supervised on a daily basis. So it is not a trip for backpackers or individual travellers, but rather for families. They will find all the luxury and service they could expect, even with young children.

Most of Bhutan in 5 days

Bhutan

A trip to Bhutan certainly requires a certain budget. In many cases, the latter determines the length of the stay, as stays in Bhutan are often only made through a duly authorized travel agency. However, don't deny your pleasure. Especially since even a few days in the "Land of the Thunder Dragon" should simply delight all travellers looking for something else

The objective is to make you discover Nepal (with an emphasis on the jungle part) by being as close as possible to the local population and nature, and to help the surrounding villages of the "Bardia National Park" to bring our share of the challenge of conserving this priceless gem of the ecosystem. The inhabitants of the Nepalese jungle: the royal Bengal tiger, the Asian elephant, the one-horned rhino, among others, a trio rarely found in the same national park that you can discover during jeep safaris, on backpacks elephant, floating or even on foot. Bardia is located in the heart of the Terai plain, inhabited by the Tharu ethnic group. The Tharu arrived here two centuries ago. They call themselves "the people of the forest". They are warm and welcoming people with a very lively and complex culture close to nature. They are happy to meet you in advance.Why Nepal? Nepal is a very safe country to travelWhatever you're looking for on a trip, Nepal has an answer for you. Wild nature (Himalayas, wild rivers, jungles...), ancient culture and traditions, the nicest people in the world, extreme activities (hiking, white water sports, jungle safaris...) and thousands of small details that will change a trip into an unforgettable experience bringing you a new insight into yourself.Nepal is mostly known for its trekking possibilities but, even if we won't miss a small detour through the mountains, we propose you to discover another very authentic and wild side of this incredible country: the jungle.Nepal is a steep country that starts in the south with the Terai plain (169 m) and rises to the highest mountain in the world in the north (8850 m).The Bardia National Park is located in the plain where a very rich ecosystem still exists. Here you will find Asian elephants, horned rhinos, numerous species of deer, 250 species of birds, monkeys (macacas and langurs), crocodiles, otters, turtles, the rare Ganga dolphin, leopards and the famous Royal Bengal tiger.Visitors can visit this national park by different means: by elephant, jeep, inflatable canoe and... on foot. Walking safaris are most interesting because they offer the best opportunities to see animals in their environment. It is not as dangerous as you might think, wild animals are guided by their instincts and by nature they will try to escape from man. People are not an option on their menu. You may read or hear many things that are wrong or exaggerated in the media, transformed or taken out of context. In Bardia National Park, you are cared for by trained local wildlife professionals who know the jungle, the plants and animals, their territories and habits. For the past 15 years, the park has been visited by an average of 4000 visitors each year and no tourist has ever been in danger.We promise you an unforgettable experience...Sustainable tourism :Your budget is invested in a remote region.Bardia is a region far from the economic poles of the country and offers few opportunities to the local population to improve their standard of living. Until now, only a few backpackers (4000 in 2001) used to reach Bardia to travel the long distance from Kathmandu to Delhi.The houses are made of wood and adobe. The local population survives mainly thanks to agriculture.Agriculture and wildlife are not good neighbours and there are many problems: elephants or deer eating crops, tigers killing cattle.An intelligent system is already in place: the government has created the "buffer zone system". Nature conservation is only possible with the participation of the local population. Their involvement is only possible if they benefit from the national park.The villages, located directly on the boundary of the park, are grouped into associations run by the local people. They decide on their own community projects and programmes (social, education, urban planning, etc.).In addition, each association has a small part of the forest where the inhabitants can, for a small fee, get what they need to stay out of the national park.When you visit Bardia National Park, 50% of the price of your permit goes to these local associations. It is therefore clear to the villagers that nature is more valuable if it is not touched.When you take part in our "jungle trip", you directly impact this system in which the inhabitants decide themselves and participate in the protection of their nature. It's a good idea, but it only works if tourists come to visit the place, which was not really the case during the last years of insurrection (which ended in 2006).Our direct involvement:In addition to its direct impact on the economy of the village (everything is bought locally, the staff is local...), Racy Shade Resort and the participants of the jungle trip in Nepal are directly involved in improving the local standard of living in the village of Takurdwara (right). next to the entrance of the national park) in different ways:- Donation of clothes.
