Eco sense

The phrase ‘eco-tourism' is one that is heard often now. And yet, one is rarely clear about what it is all about. To sum it up rather simplistically, 'eco-tourism' is an attraction with the eco-system and our surrounding environment. This interaction is a positive two way process where both humans and the environment stand to benefit. Practically all adventure activities in Himachal stem from nature and the presence of artificially created gimmicks is minimal. Almost all the activities outlined come under the broad head of ‘eco-tourism' where both nature and the participant can establish a rapport and you can truly appreciate all its wonders. For do remember, it is man who is part of nature and that too a very small one.

Always keep in mind...

Many of the places that offer the adventure activities are off the beaten track. A plastic bag, a cigarette packet, an empty water bottle casually thrown is likely to remain there for a long, long time to come. Please carry back all non-biodegradable litter plastics, foil etc. We hope that there will be a joy of discovery as you travel to these places and you will leave this pleasure for all those who come after you - which may well be your own family, friends and even children. Please treat the land and the people with respect and you will be pleasantly surprised at what both can give back to you.
