Shimla Field Office team organised a two-day training workshop on June 18-19, 2012, aimed at sensitising tour operators in Himachal Pradesh with regard to ‘Responsible Tourism Practises around High Altitude Wetlands’ in the state.

This workshop was held in collaboration with the Great Himalayan National Park (GHNP), the main objective of which was to make tour operators aware of the massive ecological footprint of the tourism industry and sensitise them about the need for responsible tourism.

The workshop was attended by around 30 persons from the tourism industry, including travel agents, tourist guides, taxi drivers, helpers and aspiring tour guides. It comprised four technical sessions, a birdwatching trip and finally, a series of group discussions which led to the formulation of various important recommendations.
