Our project for the local community and carbon offsetting

We strive to prevent environmental degradation in the country where we are sending our guests by planting trees in the deforested area. Inle Lake where we are initiating our project had suffered badly from the deforestation and the lake is shallower and shallower day after day. It happened due to the sedimentation of silt and sand brought by feeding creeks into the lake. We are planning to initiate to protect the watershed area of the lake by planting trees in the deforested area. Those projects are being led by their own Community Based Organisation and Trails of Myanmar is supporting them to maximize their benefits by conserving the nature. Every tree that they plant, they get pay for nurturing the plant as well as annual conserving fees for every tree. After two years, we are going to ordain all those trees into religion which we believe no one will cut down anymore since many people in Myanmar are very pious. For the local people benefit, they firstly get paid for every seed that they nurture as well as annual fees for two consecutive years as an incentive for the trees that they look after.
