has been officially promoted already for years in this area,
for pilgrimages to the Badrinath temple or Hemkund Sahib,
for trekkings and any other outdoor activities…
Pollution is now a main concern in many other parts of Himalaya,
around the Mt. Everest in the first line.
What do we do concrete about this?
With Adventure Trekking one porter goes on the treks to look after the dirt,
to clean and bring it down, and this works… You can see it!
Adventure Trekking has also begun a cleaning program
in & around the local villages of the Nanda Devi National Park,
with the agreement of the Uttaranchal Forest Department.
In the past, one of the great initiative to promote eco-tourism has been the creation of the
NANDA DEVI BIOSPHERE RESERVE (NDBR)
The main objective of the Nanda Devi Biosphere concept is to ensure
the conservation of landscape, ecosystem, species and genetic variations.
Encouragement to the traditional resource systems and understanding
the pattern and functioning of ecosystems are also the main conserving objects of this concept.
The NDBR was the first one to be created in Himalaya’s in 1988 by the UNESCO.
