You'll Eat Well on an RPN Ecotrip

RPN ecotrips are conservation travel in action-

Journey with RPN into the cloud forests of the Himalayas, interact and learn with local communities, explore one of the most biologically diverse areas in the world, and see wild red panda! Experience the gentle hospitality of family homestays and tea houses, which are far removed from mass tourism. You'll see first hand our community-based conservation work, and how your stay benefits directly our most important conservation partners: the rural communities who need alternatives to forest exploitation.

Our trips have a maximum of 8 participants!

RPN offers three different types of ecotrips to accommodate different interests: Our Red Panda Ecotrip is for travelers and explorers, Eco Zoo Trips are tailored for zoo staff and volunteers, Himalayan Phototrips are unique opportunities to develop photography skills.
