Help our forest

Plant trees while you trek...

The forest in this region, like many areas around the world, is threatened by numerous dangers - including farming, illegal logging, erosion, drought, illegal burning, construction. The government has protected many areas, but enforcement is difficult to manage on a wide scale. One of the ways we can help, you can help, is to replenish the trees near our trekking routes.

Catapult 04

Using the simple method of firing a traditional catapult, balls of dirt mixed with local seeds are scattered along the trail. We pay villagers to make the seedballs, and sell them by the bag - the bags are made by recycling rice sacks, cutting the top half and adding a shoulder sling, and are also bought locally.
