Chinese Silk Road or trace the evolution of Buddhist art through SoutheastAsia. No matter which cultural tour you choose, you are sure to comeaway with an understanding more precious than any photo.
 
Our guides, fluent in the local languages and experts in the indigenous
 
cultures, facilitate spontaneous ad hoc conversations with local people,
 
attendance at local festivals and observation and understanding of localreligious practices and traditions. They are the catalysts that enable this
 
experience and understanding to occur. No matter which trip or what type
 
of activity you choose, interaction with local people and exposure to their
 
culture infinitely enriches the experience.

Ecotourism Focus
 
We are an ecotourism company, continually working to minimize the impact of our visit on thenatural environment. We are aware of the fragile nature of the cultures and physical environments
 
where we work. We promote conservation, encourage sustainable development and make
 
 
[Type text]
economic contributions to local communities. Wherepossible, we employ local staff which directly benefits the
 
local communities vs. government tourism bureaus.
 
Let Global Adrenaline take you responsibly "off the beatentrack" into pristine areas that, in many instances, haveexperienced little, if any, tourism. We have pinpointedareas where isolation has preserved the stunning naturalenvironment and traditional ways of life. Take advantageof the rare opportunity to explore these areas and returnwith extraordinary photographs and memories of theseunique cultures and majestic sceneries.
Social Considerations
 
Global Adrenaline makes every effort on each expedition to help the local populations where weguide. This means hiring local guides, using local suppliers and making sure that they are given fair
 
pay for their services. All too often the tourist dollars never make it to the local government and most
 
stay with the national level government through money flows to government owned travel agencies.By channeling as much of the money as possible to local governments and communities, the localpeople are given alternatives to logging out their forests, selling off mining rights in their rivers, orpoaching endangered animals like the snow leopard. Tourism becomes a viable option to natural
 
resource exploitation, leaving something wild for future generations to enjoy. Where possible, Global
 
Adrenaline will also contribute to community welfare through partnerships with local agencies indeveloping health, education or environment programs.
 
Environmental Considerations
 
Global Adrenaline is committed to the preservation of the wilderness habitats in the remote regionsexplored by our trips, which are designed to promote an understanding of these regions' delicateecosystems. We take a low-impact, self-contained approach, carrying inwhat we need
 
and carrying out all garbage, leaving the environment unspoiled for futuregenerations of explorers. To minimize the impact of our trips on the
 
environment, where possible we use stoves rather than firewood for
 
cooking meals. We burn any paper garbage from our kitchen or collectedfrom our clients. All food items originally in glass bottles will be rebottled inplastic that can be reusable on each trek. Used cans, foil from the garbagefire and used batteries will be taken back to civilization by our staff anddelivered to a local waste management project where these items will be
 
recycled. We recommend that you bring your used batteries back to theUSA with you.
 
Global Adrenaline is intimately involved with the creation and maintenanceof wildlife reserves in China, and has proposed some similar reserve ideasin regions of India. These reserves will eventually create jobs for the local people, while protectingthe natural environment. Tourism continues to play an increasingly important role in the continuedexistence of these reserves. If you would like more information on nature reserves in China and
