Concept of Eco-Tourism
The term 'Eco-Tourism' is defined as traveling to relatively undisturbed or uncontaminated natural areas with specific objectives such as studying, admiring, and enjoying the scenery with its flora and fauna, as well as any existing cultural manifestations (both past and present) found in these areas. By this definition, nature-oriented tourism implies a scientific, aesthetic or philosophical approach to travel, although the ecologically motivated tourist need not be a professional scientist, artist or philosopher. The main feature of such tourism is that the person who practices ecotourism has the opportunity of immersing himself/herself in nature in a manner generally not available in the urban environment. Ecotourism is assessed from various perspectives. Ecotourism is also seen as an interfacing of conservation concerns and tourism interests, setting free the synergy required to jointly preserve the quality of the environment while protecting nature and promoting tourism. It is a timely strategy that is vital to the maintenance of healthy ecosystems along with economic benefits to any host-area communities. Therefore, ecotourism has been viewed as a new tourism strategy that balances development and economic gains by benefiting both nature and destination areas.
