Being part of the local community
The Last Resort in Nepal started its operations in the area by building a bridge. The bridge was necessary to be able to run the bungy and to get access to the resort grounds, set on top of a deep gorge. But the bridge also helped develop the area around the resort by giving the villagers easy access to the main road. We then hired most of the resort staff locally and gave the necessary training to them. All of our staff members have health and accident insurance, a provident fund savings account and share in the profit.
A fixed amount from every bungy, swing and canyoning trip is spent on developing and maintaining the local infrastructure and supporting several projects on health, education, women empowerment and micro finance.
With help of the resort and our international sponsors we built and renovated schools in the area, supported the construction of a new sub-health post and evening classes for local women.
We try to operated with limited impact on the environment and work on raising awareness. We buy as much as possible supplies and services locally.
Your visit will make a difference!Tourism can help to develop the economy of Nepal. But if not carefully managed, tourism can also have a damaging impact on the country’s natural and cultural heritage.
Responsible tourism businesses try to minimize the impact of tourism on the environment and maximize employment and income-generating opportunities for local communities.
