HIMALAYAN TEA TOUR - BEST ECOTOURISM IN INDIA

What is Ecotourism ?

Ecotourism is a travel concept that requires travellers to visit natural places and adopting all eco friendly and environment friendly activities. This term was first coined in the late 80's and has been prevalent since then. It is an act of making a positive impact towards the environment.

What is Sustainable Tourism ?

Sustainable tourism as the word suggests is about adopting environmental friendly techniques in order to 'sustain' the environment. Sustainable tourism is important and can create a big impact on the environment as the number of people travelling is expected to increase to 1.8 billion people by the year 2030. Travelling in such a way that benefits the people and the communities that we visit are the main goals of sustainable tourism.

Some objectives of sustainable tourism includes :

  1. Providing financial aids for conservation of the environment

  2. Embracing and supporting the local culture

  3. Building environmental awarness

  4. Providing financial aids for the empowerment of the local people
