Ecotourism and Sustainable Tourism



Travelling is one of the most beautiful experiences any human gets in his lifetime. One gets an adrenaline rush when he visits a completely unknown destination. Tourism should always be given priority as the economic value it adds to the growth of a country is tremendous which in turn does the world good especially to those parts which do not support any major industry but are extremely beautiful.The Pong Eco Village is an ardent believer of tourism promotion but what we really should encourage is Responsible Tourism.

In the recent times, the term “sustainable” has been used with travel and tourism a lot more. Everybody is striving to be sustainable, be it tour companies or hotels. Apart from the service providers, travelers, today, are also becoming more and more concerned about being sustainable and investing only in environment-friendly ventures.

The term sustainable tourism is derived from the concept of ‘Sustainability’, the need to conserve resources for the coming generations. Though conservation of natural resources is a key segment of Sustainable Tourism that is not all it is about. An effect is also created by the society and the economy and under sustainable tourism, it’s for the betterment and growth of the holiday destination. A key feature is the respect for the people who call the location their home thereby respecting the culture of the place, the ideologies, and traditions of the locals and most of all, their social economic system. Conservatory schemes form a substantial part of this idea of sustainability. In Sustainable Tourism we encourage the personal duty to methods of tourism that maximize rather than decrease sustainable human progress and environment features.

Economic sustainability is another pillar to this concept of Sustainable Tourism.

Sustainable tourism is a new concept of environment conservation which if implemented responsibly will help to make the world a better place to live in. Sustainable tourism is a form of tourism which does not have any negative impact on the environment and the local culture of that place and it helps to generate employment for the local people of that place. Sustainable tourism is beneficial both for the environment and the locals and this is largely the responsibility of the tourist.

Eco-friendly tourism is now gaining popularity amidst the popular tourist destinations around the world thanks to environmentalists and responsible citizens.

Eco-Friendly tourism means using products and services which do not harm the nature in tourist spots. Eco-tourism also means traveling to the less famous and less developed tourist destinations in order to help the locals over there and to provide funds for the development of the tourist spots. Eco-tourism entertains an avid tourist in such a way that it is minimally intrusive to the environment and only helps in the betterment of the environment. Not only the tourists but also the service providers should genuinely take part in this initiative and work together for the sustainability of the environment.

Another important benefit of Ecotourism is that it can help raise environmental awareness. The environment today is degrading and this is no hidden truth.  With Ecotourism, widespread education can be spread amongst a number of travellers regarding the importance of our surroundings and how necessary is it to preserve them. People will also come to know of the variety of flora and fauna that exists and a wave of consciousness will be given rise to owing to the necessity of conserving such magnificence created by God.

Eco-friendly tourism is now gaining popularity amidst the popular tourist destinations around the world thanks to environmentalists and responsible citizens.

The new standards of tourism are increasingly moving towards issues such as quality, sustainability, the richness of culture and accessibility . Social sustainability of this industry is looking towards alleviating poverty , promotion of human rights , preservation of culture and maintaining the richness of the environmental health.
