We Care

Tethys Himalayan strives to have minimal impact on the environment. This is reflected in all our operations, be it the outdoors on the trails or at the DEN. 

Some measures that reflect our commitment include an off-grid solar powered lighting system for the entire property, water conservation and storage facilities, solar water heating systems and sunlit rooms for natural heating. We also have an extensive Garbage Management system, among the first in the valley. To ensure minimal operational impact, we have tied up with like-minded brands to provide us with bio-degradable cleaning agents and solutions for use at the property. This is just the beginning and we’ll continue to up the ante and show that high value-low impact tourism promises returns for all.
