Responsible Tourism Mongolia

Responsible tourism – in recent years, it has developed many labels and is now a widely-used selling tool in the tourism industry. Even in Mongolia. But, what does it mean? Although there is no real clear definition, it has to be more than ensuring that we collect all of our rubbish, asking before taking a photograph or being aware of the cultural norms. That’s what we should be automatically doing anyway and is ‘tick-box’ responsible tourism.

This is about our responsibility to Mongolia. Travel can, and should be, a positive experience for both you, the visitor, and for Mongolia – its natural environment, people, culture and traditions. We believe that travel has to be beneficial to all concerned. This for us is responsible tourism.

As a registered Mongolian company (operating under our Mongolian name of Gobi Gua Undur) and social travel enterprise, we focus on promoting a greater travel approach to benefit everyone involved, leading to a more positive and personal style of experience for all concerned. As a business working in tourism we have a responsibility to help combat problems including those created by tourism itself. We believe that our philosophy helps create positive social change in Mongolia.

Eternal Landscapes is not an NGO or a charity.  Neither are Turuu or I philanthropists. However, our love of Mongolia is genuine and our involvement is long-term. We are a  small business so our level of support may seem relatively small in the grand scheme of things but we think that it does help to make a visible and significant difference.  Learn more about our responsible tourism Mongolia policy.

‘The responsible travel value is a true value to Eternal Landscapes and core to what you do. It is not merely a nice term which you just give lip service to. I do feel that our trip was low impact. If any impact was made, it is a positive, financial one to the local communities we passed through.’
