From trekking to drinking water

Sustainable travel in Nepal

Nepal wants to receive considerably more guests than before. This is fundamental to the economic growth of the developing country, but also brings with it problems. Sustainable tourism is therefore particularly important in Nepal - and travelers can do their part. Here are a few tips.

The isolated city

45 kilometers from Tallinn lies Paldiski. For decades, the coastal town was sealed off from the outside world and still stands in stark contrast to the progressive Estonian capital. Not without reason, one of the most depressing European films of the 2000s was filmed here. A visit.
