We truly believe that you will help us in initiating this and become an Eco-Traveler, if not already one.
A little on what Ecotourism exactly is
A dictionary defines it as “tourism directed towards unspoilt natural environments and intended to support conservation efforts”. In addition, Eco-Traveler believes in supporting, protection and at the same time experiencing local culture and heritage. Tourism results in social, as well as environmental impacts, and a responsible tourist needs to be aware of this.

Using litter bins to trash items that do not decompose, minimum use of purchases packed in plastic, carry a waste bag for your personal non-biodegradable waste.
Enjoying watching the biodiversity of the geography, not playing loud music or being loud, when we go outdoors, we are borrowing home of animals and birds, it’s our responsibility to ensure they are not disturbed.
Purchasing locally produced items- from handicrafts to breweries to savories
Keeping minimum carbon footprint and nil plastic footprints on the trail through not burning plastic or wood.
Things an Eco-Traveler carries
Apart from personal clothing and toiletries following items need to be carried in order to make this do it yourself and minimum footprint trek and also for your personal convenience-
Carry your own water bottle, tea up and a tiffin box for packing lunch, instead of using disposable packing material. Water bottle with filters are available, however the natural resources are clean and pristine. It’s good to carry dry fruits and nuts for personal use.
