Red Panda Ecotrips

Find yourself in red panda country... one of the most biodiverse areas in the world. 

You actively see how your stay benefits directly our most important conservation partners: the rural communities who need alternatives to forest exploitation.

What makes RPN's ecotrips so great?

RPN specializes in red panda conservation travel. We believe that small groups are best for authentic wildlife viewing, providing meaningful nature experiences, and getting to know rural communities. Our small-groups have a minimum size of 2 and a maximum of 8.

RPN's ecotrips are not the same old homogenous tours offered by most companies as we offer rare visits and wildlife experiences that are out of reach for the typical traveler. When trip participants return home they had a life experience, have a stronger connection with the natural world, and a deeper desire to protect it.

Food & Meals

Did we mention food? RPN's ecotrips offer some amazing meals. Each are freshly prepared by locals at your homestays. Homestay operators have been certified in food safety techniques. We accomodate meat, vegan, and vegetarian options.

Local Culture

RPN's ecotrips immerse you in the local culture, both in rural areas and the capitol city of Kathmandu. Our guides make sure to include the local sights and experiences.


Part of the RPN ecotrip experience is overnighting in local homestays. These homestays are welcoming, comfortable, and you get to learn about Nepali culture from local people. Homestay personnel are trained in effective sanitation and food safety standards.

Transportation During the Trip

RPN handles all the in-country transportation. We meet you at the airport and will provide all in-country flights and manage all local transit as needed.
