WHO TRAVELS WITH US?
Our tours and other adventure trips are comprised of small and friendly groups made up of a variety of interesting and worldly individuals from all walks of life. A typical group has anywhere from 2 to 18 people between ranging from between 18 and 70 years of age with an approximately equal ratio of men and women.
Most people who join our trips are easy-going, open-minded individuals, with a positive attitude, who seek out new experiences and enjoy the occasional challenge to their expectations. They don’t come abroad just to experience everything exactly as it is at home, otherwise they wouldn’t travel! Regardless your level of travel experience or fitness is, if you have the desire to go then we are bound to have a trip that suits you.
Our trips are designed to be genuine explorations for travelers (not just “tourists”!) who are interested in gaining an understanding of the country they are visiting instead of just “seeing it” superficially through a bus window. Our philosophy is “organized but flexible” in that we provide the advantages of lower cost group travel, yet assist and encourage people to do any side trips or exploring they wish to do on their own.
We are an authentic “Eco-Tourism” company. All of our trips are operated with the utmost concern for environmental responsibility and cultural sensitivity. Garbage is carried out or buried and all cooking is done on kerosene or gas stoves in areas which might be threatened by deforestation, as is unfortunately the case at several of our destinations.
Our style of traveling makes it an active, participatory type of experience involving culture, trekking, hiking, safaris and other kinds of physical activity on many of the days.
All our cultural programs emphasize and highlight the local philosophy and way of life in their respective Central Asian countries.
With the exception of except for high trekking, participants do not have to be marathon runners or a mountaineers in order to take part in our trekking program - you simply have to be the kind of person who enjoys walking, the outdoors and the opportunity of cross-cultural contact in exotic lands. You never have to carry heavy loads on your back, as we have a full staff of porters, cooks and guides to take care of the more mundane tasks associated with camping and help you make the most of your trip. We also provide much of the major required camping equipment - such as tents, mattresses, dishes and cutlery. All you have to do is bring your own personal gear.
Asia Mountains tours are special in that we always do something “off the beaten path”, such as taking a lesser-traveled route and participating in local festivals or visiting a villager’s home. We have designed our trips with enough time budgeted in most places to include a variety of activities and excursions. We encourage cross-cultural contact so that participants can better understand the area being visited and its people.
