The Ecotourism practices at Coorg tourist attractions are highly substantial specifically at Nisargadham and Dubare Elephant Camp. The people involved in managing these places are doing commendable job. To exemplify local people are fully involved in the tourism activities which are listed below:

At Nisarghadham:

Local people are given commercial spaces to put up their stalls of chocolates, apparels, handicrafts, dry fruits, spices, food, wines, etc. Some are deployed for the upkeep of the area. Some take care of the adventure activities at the spot. Cottages made of bamboos for accommodations are taken care by the local people.

At Dubare Elephant Camp:

Local people take care of the transportation activity from the parking area to the camp site, they are involved in the activities like bathing, feeding and training of elephants. The crossing of river to reach the camp is very adventurous and naturally kept.

Abbey Falls:

Local people take care of the parking, food corners and maintenance.

Tourists visiting such naturally blessed spots should be sensitive towards the cleanliness, hygiene, sanitation and upkeep of the place. It is been observed that tourists litter the place knowingly, spoiling the surrounding just because of their indifference attitude. It is a humble request to all the tourists to not to litter such beautiful places and spoil its elegance.

Nice thought to appreciate the work of locals
A very thoughtful blog as it highlights the role of locals in maintaining tourist destinations. Nice pictures to accompany the blog. It's true that tourists litter the places they visit. Certain tourist spots in Kerala do not let tourists enter with any plastic (except water bottles). We must implement such rules everywhere.

Dear Mousumi, Thanks for your appreciation and inputs. In Nisarghadham, Coorg they follow the same practice of not allowing any plastic materials inside the attraction.
