Dear Friends,

The International Year For Sustainable Tourism For Development drew to a close with the turn of the year, but the commitment to the cause did not. At Alpaviram, we continue the conversation around sustainable development through responsible travel practices.

Last year, we have seen a record number of authors find their voice and take a stand on responsible travel through our website.

We are delighted to share that Alpaviram conducted 2 successful workshops with schoolchildren to create more awareness around the issue. Our guided tours and responsible city walks have found more takers. We hope to continue to grow on both counts this year.

We have joined forces with responsible travellers doing commendable work in the sphere and with homestay and hotels who give the issue it’s due.

So what lies ahead? The journey, of course! Now that we have found our path and fellow travellers to join us, it is time to set off on this incredible journey around the world.

So call upon your friends and family to hop onto the Alpaviram bandwagon. Join us in finding new voices, nurturing new ideas and supporting each other in making responsible travel a mainstream option. We have exciting plans for our partners in the coming months and gifts to be won. Our monthly newsletter will keep up abreast of all the merriment that Team Alpaviram will have along this journey. Make sure you stay in touch and stay responsible.

Happy New Year!

Abhi ke liye, Alpaviram.
