GREEN IS OUR VALLEY

We at Lchang Nang Retreat want to offer our guests a unique experience that has a close connection to the environment.

The retreat is powered by a solar grid and plastic containers are kept to a minimum. Abundant replantation each spring, the use of local materials in low impact construction such as mud and rock walls OR willow and poplar roofs, garbage segregation and a careful use of fuel, are some of the green practices we have implemented.

Our attempt is to keep our carbon footprint to a bare minimum, while building our business on strictly sustainable principles.

A list of what we do to minimize our impact on the environment:

  • Solar panels and battery bank that generate 95% of our energy.
  • Construction basis solar passive architecture.
  • 15 acres of grazing land.
  • LED lighting for cottages.
  • Minimal use of plastic.
  • No plastic containers for our organic soaps, shampoo and moisturizers.
  • Solar geysers for hot water.
  • Mud, willow, stone, and poplar used as the primary building materials.
  • Use of solar lamps for landscape lighting where needed.
  • Flood irrigation system to water all 20 acres of our property.
  • Garbage segregation and recycling of almost all waste.
  • Buying local and growing our own vegetables and herbs organically.
