Eco-tourism gaining popularity in India

Published on : Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Eco-tourismIn the last two years, the eco-tourism sector of India has shown a considerable amount of growth. A growing number of states are taking to green tourism for marketing their natural heritage.

 
The sole purpose of eco-tourism is to showcase the ecological heritage of a country or a specific region for preserving and sustaining the region’s flora and fauna. The Himalayan range, Kerala, the North-east India, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Dudhsagar Falls, Tsmoriri Wetland Conservation Reserve and the Lakshadweep Islands are some of the major eco-tourism hubs in India.

 
The Kerala State Government has earned a record INR 145.53 billion from eco-tourism alone in 2016. The Athirapally and Vazhachal waterfalls fetched revenue of INR 42.79 billion. Wayanad, on the other hand, has generated a profit of INR 40.28 billion. The region of Thiruvananthapuram has earned revenue of INR 10.8 billion.

 
Canopy walks is also being implemented between Castle Rock, Uttara Kannada district and Dudhsagar Falls on the Karnataka-Goa border. But many environmentalists believe that these gimmicks are turning natural conservation areas into amusement parks, just raking in extra money.
