Community

Travelling is not only about seeing new places, but it’s also about growing as a person and finding your true self. And the only way to do is to get assimilated with nature and people. Our vision is to incorporate native people in our camp and support them to serve their livelihood. This, in turn, helps in women empowerment. Children that used to drop their education at a very early age are going back to school again. Join Our Community.

Our Vision of Eco-Friendly Tourism

Imagine standing at a dense forest or hill and found everywhere plastic cups and packets approaching you! Sounds horrible right? A recent study shows that more than one million birds and 1 lakh mammals die every year due to plastic debris.

Being a Hill camp or Jungle Trek, Alafiia finds itself responsible to promote eco-friendly tourism and preserve the ecosystem. Throwing plastic cups, plates, or plastic packets in the riverside or during the trek or inside the camp is strictly prohibited. we also count for every drop of water and try not to waste as much as we can. Hunting animals or hurting birds are something that we strictly condemn.

Tips to remember

  • Though there are mobile charging facilities available, do bring your mobile power bank to avoid inconveniences.
  • Since it is a remote area, the mobile network is not too strong. (But that adds up the hype of adventure even more! Not always we get a chance to get detached from all chaos going around us.)
  • Do bring a torch, and always carry it while you are walking along with the river at night.
  • Carry ID prof, Medicine, Easy dry cloth
  • For this trail, you need to prepare yourself or your body strength in advance.
