Our commitment to sustainable travel


At WildChina, we believe in offering our clients journeys that emphasize community interaction, provide rich cultural experiences and support cultural and environmental preservation.

 

To these ends, we bring travelers to rural communities across China, where we help generate economic benefits for host communities by hiring locally and visiting local shops and restaurants. We take travelers into local people’s homes for intimate peeks into their lives, such as how yak butter is made and how homes are prepared for the coming winter. WildChina believes such interactions give travelers a meaningful and personal understanding of what life is like in China, thereby deepening their understanding of China’s broader socioeconomic and environmental successes and challenges.

 

WildChina also encourage travelers to give back to the communities they visit, such as by teaching English to local students; donating books, stationery or school supplies to our “WildLibrary” in a village school; providing a village with running water; spending time with children in an orphanage; or financially supporting longer-term projects like renovating a village square.

 

We also hold extensive training sessions for the local partners, guides and villages we work with, which aim not only to teach people how to operate sustainable travel programs, but also to help them understand the importance of cultural and environmental preservation. To reduce the environmental impact of our travels, we reduce, reuse and recycle in our office and on our trips; we avoid using plastic bags and try to minimize the use of other disposables. We also train our staff and guides in responsible outdoor practices, such as Leave No Trace.
