The thrust of this article on eco-tourism is on to sensitize the tourist and locals alike. Awareness about the ecological disposition of tourist places among the local populace who in turn will educate and sensitize the visitors, guide them about fragile nature of biome and provide them precautionary measures. Most of the places including grassland, water bodies are sensitive to human interference and injudicious access can spoil the rich yet rare treasure of nature. Since, most of the places particularly higher reaches are snow bound and remain covered under snow for over six months or so, the biome underneath find sun for short stint only and the biomes barely reaches its full growth which render them susceptible to very little human inferences.

Our Paddar is indeed a place of divinity blessed by mother Goddess Mata Chandi, known by various names Viz. Machail Mata, Singhassan Mata , Shakti Mata, Sheetla Mata, and so . To pay their obessiance thousands of devotees throng every year.


The pilgrimage tourism is most popular form of tourism industry in Paddar. With the onset of spring the phenomena of pilgrimage popularly known as Yatra begin and continues intermittently till the onset of autumn, pilgrimage in the form of religious procession is commonly practised which at a time put mass pressure on the Landmass and man to land usage ratio get accentuated which in fact add pollution and spoil the vegetation, dump plenty of garbage which include non-biodegradable plastic materials which is hazardous to the environment. Therefore, having discussed the implications of unorganized tourism on the local ecology and environment to practice eco-friendly tourism in other words eco-tourism become imperative and precursor to the environment sensitive behaviour of visitors.

The indiscriminate felling of forest and unwanted over exploitation of forest produce are some areas of concern which must be addressed lest the blessed nature turn hostile. These human activities are many a time found responsible for the major environmental hazards such as frequent flash flood, forest fire, permanent loss of grassland and loss of arable landscape.


The lushgreen pasture land are permanently destroyed and flooded with boulders and debris and which cannot be reclaimed to its previous State even after 50 years. Therefore, an earnest appeal lies in this article not to disturb the fragile ecological disposition of tourist places and to value nature and respect its worth which is indeed a need of hour.
