Eco-Tourism of West Bengal

Lush Green Forest, Snow-Clad Mountains and the Tea Garden hold the key of West Bengal State's beauty in North Bengal. Sal Forest, Mangrove Delta region of Sunderban make West Bengal a paradise for 'Eco-Tourism'.

What is Eco-Tourism?
Eco-tourism involves traveling to naturally blessed lands for studying and getting knowledge of the plants, animals, culture and the natural beauties. This is why it is different from Resort Tourism and Mass Tourism.

Sanctuary, Nature is the prime attraction for Eco-Tourism. The place should be sustainable in ecologically, culturally, and economically and sociology for developing it to an eco-tourism place. West Bengal's Forest Department was the main implementing agency of eco-tourism in Bengal and gradually the activities came from tourism Department, Eco-Development Committees and Forest Protection Committees of West Bengal.

West Bengal's Eco-Tourism spots: -
1. Mukutmanipur of Bankura

How to make eco-tourism better?
