The tiger tourism is an expensive entertainment that has become a status symbol. However, tourism will significantly be restricted because the Supreme Court of India has recently announced a series of measures to prohibit tourist activities in the reserves of tigers in the country.
This has been known in a press release that the court said that states have not created protection zones in the habitat of tigers will be subject to severe penalties.
India is home to more than half of existing tigers worldwide, which in numbers, means about 3,200 copies most of whom live. From the year 1970, reserves created especially for the conservation of the endangered tiger, which tourism is a side effect.
The reserves are small and are affected by the disruption caused by tourism can not compete with large African savanna parks that are able to withstand a lot of people.
People do not realize the damage they inflicted on the ecosystem: hundreds of hotels, shops, businesses and tourist entertainment initiatives operating within the reserves in order to provide visitors the opportunity to observe animals in their natural habitat.
Tourists, whether in vehicles or mounted on the backs of elephants, destroys the tall grass, and drive the big cats prey that hunt for food.
This measure certainly hurt some interests, and will affect tourists who had already booked their place in one of the many hotels that have been established from the tigers tourism.
In India, there is a town around a lake that knew how to “own” the water, or better, add the lake as part of a semi-aquatic city. The lake, for hundreds of years, is populated by houseboats and “itinerant”. There is even a small community or “floating slum” with their own markets in water, their “gardens” of water lilies, boats, school, and even stores that could move easily from side to side. Everything happens on the Dal Lake, in the city of Srinagar.
The first thing you read when searching for information on Srinagar (the largest city in the state of Jammu and Kashmir) on sites like Wikitravel , is that the area is heavily affected by the recent violence for political reasons, which is a militarized zone and away from the peaceful image that usually associate with other regions of India. Often, there are demonstrations and rallies that can end with expressions of violence at any moment. Although the situation appears to be more relaxed in recent times is very important to learn before thinking of visiting the site.
There is little that is sensed from the above by looking at the images that illustrate the post, especially in the vicinity of Dal Lake, the heart of Srinagar. The shallow lake is dotted with boats and houseboats, a way of life displayed around the water where people live, old boats nearly swamped in the mud in very poor areas, and even boats to houseboats that look like a small palace. The boats are known as shikaras, and are extremely colorful in contrast to the predominantly gray ground. Nevertheless, the Dal Lake of tranquility pervades the place, and a strange stillness as that is almost mirrored in its waters.
Not everything is so idyllic even in the lake. In addition to the social and political problems of the region, especially Dal Lake, there are problems of excessive growth of aquatic plants, and are needed almost constantly cleaning:
On land, the city of Srinagar is chaotic, with a particular architecture:
Many of the houseboats, offers accommodation for tourists, it is certainly the best way to sleep in Srinagar. The houseboats have between 2 to 5 bedrooms, bathroom, dining room and deck to enjoy the outdoors. Ideally, it is not booked before you arrive, and yes, know this before confirming a stay to avoid bad experiences. Srinagar is one of the faces of this multifaceted region of Asia, still an amazing place (and even for bad reasons) remain away from the main tourist routes.
It is regularly named as one of the most beautiful rivers (and throat) of allEurope. And the images add points for that. With about 25 kilometers long and up to 700 meters deep, the Verdon Gorge (Gorges du Verdon) is located southeast ofFranceand earns its name from its turquoise-colored water.
The most impressive section is located between the towns of Castellane and Moustiers-Sainte-Marie, fortified by a fall of limestone and the route leading to the artificiallakeofSainte-Croix-du-Verdon. The canyon is one of the most spectacular of allEurope, and is frequented by tourists, especially in summer and attracted by the possibility of climbing or kayaking, fishing, paragliding and hiking.
