Community-based Tourism

This trek is part of our Community-based Tourism (CBT) project in Vietnam, ensuring socially and environmentally responsible tourism. CBT allows ethnic minorities in poor and remote regions of Vietnam to increase their income, reap the socio-economic benefits of tourism, and share their language and culture with others.

Our approach to tourism focuses on the community. Our initiative ensures that benefits generated from tourism stay in the community. This means that your participation helps build a better, sustainable livelihood for locals. When you trek with us, you trek with a purpose.
