ECO  TOURISM  IN  SRIKAKULAM  DISTRICT


Over the years, the definition of ECO Tourism has changed and evolved as travellers have become more aware of the impact of their travels on both the environment and communities, yet it remains difficult to define because of the various facets involved.

On a consensus, ECO Tourism may be defined as, “Environmentally responsible travel to natural areas, in order to enjoy and appreciate nature (and accompanying cultural features, both past and present) that promote conservation, have a low visitor impact and provide for beneficially active socio-economic involvement of local peoples.”

“ECO Tourism is about connecting conservation, communities and sustainable travel”. This means that those who implement and participate in Responsible Tourism activities should follow the ECO Tourism principles such as

  •        Conscientious, low-impact visitor behaviour
  •        Sensitivity towards, and appreciation of  local cultures and biodiversity
  •        Support for local conservation efforts
  •        Sustainable benefits to local communities
  •        Local participation in decision-making
  •        Provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts
  •        Educational components for both the traveler and local communities
  •        Raise sensitivity to host countries’ political, environmental and social climate

     So, it seems that definition of ECO Tourism today is a conglomerate of the various travel ideologies it attempts to achieve. It is Sustainable Tourism, Responsible Tourism, Ethical Tourism, Cultural Tourism, Green Tourism – all equally confusing labels that are seldom correctly defined but at the same time encompass the values of ECO Tourism.

Srikakulam District of Andhra Pradesh, with Long Coast Line… Rivers… Rivulets… Lakes and with rich Heritage of over 2000 years, offers excellent opportunities for development of ECO Tourism
