While operating tours and trekking program, protection of the fragile environment is our topmost concern. Mountain Monarch is aware of preserving & conserving the past glory of our ancestors and to hand over all the Natural and Cultural affluent to our next generation. As our lives have revolved around the Mountains & valleys, we feel bigger and increased responsibility to protect and preserve these Natural and cultural resources. We are committed to minimizing the negative impact of tourism and enable you to 'take only photos, leave only footprints'. We cook using kerosene or LPG gas and bring back all non-biodegradable items used on all trips. Being a member of KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Education Project), we are organizing various 'Eco- Tourism Workshops in association to protect the fragile environment and indigenous cultures of the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal.
To put a brick on our commitments we have active involvement on forestation program jointly organized by Trekking Agencies Association Nepal at Kashi Bhanjang, Kavre every year on the World Environment Day.

Staff welfare / Porter Protection Policy
We believe in taking responsibility and caring all of our staff from trek leaders to sherpas, cooks and porters. We ensure good pay, life insurance, helicopter evacuation if reqruied, as well as the equipment and clothing needed for porters and each member of staff. Mountain Monarch has fulfilled all the standard set by IPPG (International Porter Protection Group) for the welfare and safety of all porters and is committed to improving their livelihoods. They are our kith and kin as well as the backbone of trekking in Nepal. No wonder all of the staff including porters want to work for us over and over again. We have set some noticeable guidelines, which we are applying in our trips as a Porter Protection Policy.
