Nature-oriented Tourism Development Principle

Aiming at protecting natural resources, eco-tourism is a form of tour conducive to the sustainable development of the environment, focusing on experiencing and learning about nature. Eco-tours must be organized in ways that ensure a minimal impact on the protected area, and should focus on learning about local customs and practices in the protected area.
