Our Mission

Himmapaan Foundation is a network of organizations, individuals and companies in the travel-related industry working together to support sustainable tourism in areas of Thailand where tourism has had a negative impact on the environment and local traditions. It strives to encourage travellers and the travel industry to take part in activities to restore or improve the quality of life of local people in their communities and their surroundings and support other environmental protection projects in need.

Named after an ancient mythical forest and likened to a Garden of Eden for its bounties of nature, Himmapaan was founded in 2007 by East West Siam and its industry partners; Asian Oasis, Gebeco and Travel Indochina.

Himmapaan Foundation works to encourage collaboration among local communities, associate partners, organizations and specialists in the field to find the best possible sustainable solutions for areas affected by tourism.
