Development Leading to Environmental & Traditional Degradation of Ladakh

 

New Delhi, India - 110091, Delhi -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/04/2012 -- Ladakh is one of the most attractive tourist spots in India. Surrounded by the mountains on both the sides this snow land incorporates beauty, peace, calmness and serenity and is the perfect holiday destination for summers. Ladhak is also popular among tourist loving adventure sports as it offers unique adventures in trekking, mountaineering and white water rafting.

Tourism in Ladakh has increased remarkably in past few years, majorly because of development of good hotels in the region and better transport facility. But the tourism and economic development of the region is leading to the degradation of its magical beauty and simplicity. The land is under acute water stress mainly due to development of hotels using modern sewage system.

Insensitivity of tourists toward the environment and nature is also responsible for the degradation of Ladakh. Air pollution caused due to increased number of vehicle, and enhancement in tourism related activities is disturbing the peace and serenity of Ladakh. The freshness of the air and the untouched beauty of the valley has been replaced by diesel fume and streets littered with plastic wrappers.

Communities like Ladakh Ecological Development GROUP (LEDeG) and Aama Tsogspa are extending their extensive support to conserve the natural beauty of the valley.
