Being Responsible and Thoughtful of the Natural Environment - Initiatives being Undertaken at Indus Caravan to Conduct Responsible Eco-tourism to Maintain a Beautiful Pakistan into the Future
Blessed with nature, Pakistan has many unique and beautiful sights from the Karakoram mountain range to the Arabian Sea. Home to many rare species that live in the mountains like Pakistan’s national animal the Markhor, as well as the ibex and snow leopards.
Many migratory birds also pass through the Indus River system in the spring and autumn. During the winter, migratory birds arrive here from Siberia and Central Asia.
Unfortunately, overexploitation of the natural resources due to economic growth, uncontrolled development of tourism, and pollution from trash is causing the loss of habitat and impacting the natural beauty of Pakistan.
Indus Caravan thoughtfully operates tours in the following ways:
Reduce the use of plastic products and unnecessary packaging
Reduce the use of small plastic bottles by installing mineral water servers on moving vehicles.
Being responsible with our trash. Promoting trash cleanup activities at camping and National Parks that we visit.
Being respectful of local customs, having cultural and religious sensitivity when visiting the villages.
Practicing good manners for wildlife observation and photography by keeping a proper distance from wild animals.
Promoting wildlife awareness and protection among the residents so they can also understand the value of ecotourism as a source of benefit to them.
We promote smaller group sizes in order to minimize the impact on the resources as we visit these small villages.
Promoting cultural / religious sensitivity of our guests by educating them about the local customs as well as taboos in order to avoid miscommunication or offensive behavior.
Being respectful of socially and religiously significant places by acting in a respectful way when taking photos or speaking as a group or as a male/female.
We are making these efforts and ask that our customers understand and cooperate in order to sustain the healthy development of tourism in Pakistan. If you have a concern or suggestion for improving your tour, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to expanding our efforts to promote environmental conservation together with you and the communities of Pakistan.
