Harnessing the power of tourism to benefit local communities

Connect With Communities

 

Founded in 1998, Crooked Trails is a non-profit travel organization working to transform tourism into a positive force in the world. We create custom-designed interactive journeys and support community development projects in partnership with local communities, NGOs and operators.

Our goal at Crooked Trails is to inspire travelers to get involved in the places they visit and to empower locals to take charge of tourism in their communities.

To get to meet people’s brothers and sisters and uncles within the course of our travel was completely unique. And to have Phuntso there translating, I really felt I got to have conversations with local people. One woman had never had a visitor in her home from outside of her community and she was so warm, so excited to talk to us ladies – she wished we could all speak the same language so that we could talk more openly.

“May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, and leading to the most amazing view… where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you.”
