Uttarakhand is a biodiversity hotspot and with the Government promoting Ecotourism in the state, along with its mission of converting Uttarakhand to an eco tourism spot.

Ecotourism can be defined as a type of tourism where the environment, local community and visitor all benefit. Ecotourism typically involves travel to destinations where flora, fauna, and cultural heritage are the primary attractions. One of the goals of ecotourism is to offer tourists insight into the impact of human beings on the environment, and to foster a greater appreciation of our natural habitats. 

An integral part of ecotourism is the promotion of recycling, energy efficiency, water conservation, and creation of economic opportunities for local communities.

Uttarakhand is the BEST place for Ecotourism as it has the snow capped mountains, rolling meadows, high altitude lakes, dense forests and wetland habitat support a divers and exotic wildlife, birds and plants species in Garhwal and Kumaon the two regions of Uttarakhand.
