The most prominent thing to make it workout is to first develop a true sense of responsibility towards it and knowing it thoroughly by the way of sheer research. It connotes a moralistic accountability and demands for conservation of wild life and healthy nature. It is sustaining, preserving and developing a sense of responsibility towards sensitive nature. The hit funda behind this to make it successful is to recycle and re-use  things.  This will automatically result in one’s own welfare, but to truly reach to the heights of success, it needs that the natives lend a helping hand and contribute their efforts in a bigger way.

Very few would be acquainted to the fact that Indian sub-continent was before a part of Antartica to what was earlier known as Gondwana Land. As the Indian plate split up, and bounded northward, it made a swift landing over the Asian plate. The impact is all too awesome and magnificent. Forming the highest chain of the mountains from Arunachal Pradesh in East India to Jammu and Kashmir in the North, the Himalays are too awesome, and sometime also called the third pole. Because of which it has to face the negative effect, today’s ground reality is that the Indian Himalayas have turned too fragile because it experiences perpetual visitors, being a popular holiday destination. Regular tourists destroy the local area and it is turning to crowdy. Although, eco tourists are different. Experts believe that ecotourism will do the Indian Himalayas good.

Also, organic farming is yet another aspect that is related to ecotourism and creates various opportunities. Researchers have agreed to the point that conservation projects which go on for a long time will provide the locals with jobs. It will also develop the mountain economy in the Indian Himalayas.

Also conservation of natural exquisiteness would be possible if we take indispensable precautions towards them like the tourists should be careful that mountains are left clean at all costs. They should carry an extra bag so that they can crush all the trash in, so that there is nothing leftover in the mountains. This will not only benefit the forthcoming generations for centuries to come but will assure of peaceful existence of all the living beings equally. Also, simulataneously it will create job opportunities for the natives by way of attracting tourists in exotic locations like this.

According to Manoj Bhatt, the president of RACHNA(Research, Advocacy and Communication in Himalayan Areas), ecotourism  is the answer to preserving the Himalayan environment as well as the economy. Environmental experts believe that regular tourism is the major cause of the degradation of Indian Himalayan towns. Most hikers, bird watchers, climbers, go by an unwritten code of ethics which lets them preserve the environment they love the most. These eco-tourists create jobs in Himalayan regions.

Also only the populace cannot alone for the initiative of conservation of environment, the Government should commemorate with new innovations and fresh activities to develop awareness towards eco-tourism.

    It’s essentially some attempt by people serious about our environment. However, low interest in keeping the harmony & conservation of nature is something you have to fight against, especially 3rd world countries with low education & awareness with population & employment problems, for eg: India. It’s appreciable effort from your side to promote it.

    Ecotourism is responsible travel to fragile, pristine, and usually protected areas that strives to be low impact and small scale.

    It purports to educate the traveller; provide funds for conservation; directly benefit the economic development and political empowerment of local communities; and foster respect for different cultures and for human rights.

    Eco tourism is held as important by those who participate in it so that future generations may experience aspects of the environment relatively untouched by human intervention
