past decade Leh-Ladakh has evolved into one of the most popular travel destinations for Indian tourists attracting thousands of backpackers bikers trekkers from different walks of life and diverse age groups The picturesque landscape of Leh-Ladakh and its high motorable passes have opened a box of adventures for many converting it into an achievable bucket list item for many in their youth This sudden boost in tourist activity has brought out the economy of this Himalayan region out of a slumber providing numerous work opportunities for the locals However there is also a downside to it The Himalayan terrain which is considered to be extremely fragile now faces pressure of increased human activity and the subsequent changes to support this While the environmental aspect is quite apparent many claim that it is impacting the lives of Ladakhis in ways beyond that Vinod Sreedhar founder of environmental conservation organisation and eco tour agency Journeys with Meaning says “While they are earning more there has also been a huge increase in the amount of waste generated This non-biodegradable waste builds up massively and since there are either no or limited options available for recycling this waste it just stays there leaching toxins into the groundwater and water sources Another issue is the loss of traditional earth-friendly practices that are constantly being replaced by urban practices that are not suitable for the these regions and their ecosystems” So what can we do The onus of ensuring that our footprint is minimised and the negative impact on the environment and ecology of the region is reduced lies with the travellers There are a number of ways that it can be done Let’s list out a few easy ones: First and most important do not litter Yes the biggest issue tourists tend to bring with them is the waste they produce especially plastic Local gurest house owners and travel guides have complaint that a number of tourists usually leave all their waste scattered near popular travel destinations which is a cause of concern “Some places are clearly being spoilt by tourism alone for example the areas around the lakes that are popular with tourists Those lakes are heavily affected by blown trash and more importantly nitrogen-rich effluent seeping through the ground from all the flush toilets installed to serve tourists” says Rebecca Norman volunteer coordinator at the Students’ Educational and Cultural Movement of Ladakh The mention of flush toilets brings us to our next point Choose compost toilets Ladakh is a high-altitude desert region and water is a precious and scarce resource for the locals The Ladakhi people are accustomed to using compost toilets which conserves water Tourists however prefer flush toilets which not only lead to wastage of water in large quantities but also produces a nitrogen-rich waste “Earlier when only the foreign tourists used to visit Ladakh they would adopt our ways of living But the local tourists demand luxurious facilities like good rooms attached toilets and constant water supply” says Disket L a guest house owner in Leh Homestay is always a better option With the growing business opportunities most of the locals in Leh-Ladakh are now opting to construct new guest houses and hotels or reconstruct their own houses to adopt to the needs of tourists This means treading away from building houses by commonly used materials like wood and choosing concrete and bricks instead Every year a number of new guest houses and hotels pop up in Leh region The locals with help of outside investors have also begun large projects like better and more luxurious hotels This only means an excessive burden on this area The perils of uncontrolled and unregulated construction activities are not unknown Why fly Another way of reducing our carbon footprint is by choosing to travel by train instead of flying This may be time consuming but it comes with an added advantage of the opportunity to enjoy the scenic beauty The Himachal Road Transport Corporation (HRTC) runs a bus service from ISBT in Delhi to Leh and it costs only a little more than 1300 bucks Thinlas Chorol founder of Ladakhi Women’s Travel Company says ‘there has been a sudden rise in the number of vehicles plying on roads in Ladakh This means an increase in pollution’ “Although there was a good snowfall this year in last three-four years it did not snow that much This impacts the farmers who grow local crops here We used to grow apricots in low-lying areas but that has also been impacted in last few years” she adds These changes happening in the Leh-Ladakh region may not seem too big to the tourists and the locals might condone it because of the economic benefits However continuing in the same manner tourism might have too high a cost in Ladakh “The impacts of unsustainable tourism will first show up as increased pollution waste noise loss of traditional sustainable practices etc Then it will be the turn of the economy as people wouldn’t want to spend their holidays in dirty polluted places Tourists will start moving to other places that will then be seen as offbeat and beautiful” said Vinod There are several travel organisations and NGOs which are working to promote sustainable tourism in Ladakh There are for sure bigger and better initiatives and government regulations needed to ensure conservation of Ladakhi environment and ecology However small steps like these can also add up to create a huge difference For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App IE Online Media

812 said they rallied elsewhere in the country Among the nearly 500 responses recording a march in another country France (164 response) the Netherlands (80) Germany (60) and the United Kingdom (41) topped the poll turnout We did at times tweet the survey link to specific march Twitter hashtags so that certainly skewed the location distribution Assuming all these people truly marched—not a given; a handful of people checked into our survey Friday night before the marches began and bad weather may have discouraged them in the end—it’s fun to wonder what percentage of total marchers the poll captured Even one in 1000 or higher would corroborate the idea that the global marches drew more than 1 million people Nearly 22% of responders said they were academic researchers and another 7% labeled themselves as industry or government researchers Science educators represented 10% of the responses and science students (from undergraduate to PhD) were also well-represented at more than 16% Almost 23% however said they were in nonscience professions A Cuadra/Science A near-even mix of veteran protesters newbies and Women’s March on Washington participants—and relatively old The poll indicates that more than 60% of respondents had either attended the Women’s March on Washington (35%) earlier this year or had gone to past political protests or issue-oriented marches (nearly 29%) (The survey choices were mutually exclusive) The remaining Thirty-six percent were attending their first such event Only 10% of respondents said they were 25 or under—though anecdotally news reports and social media-shared photos showed plenty of children and teenagers with parents or teachers The rest of the age distribution was then close to equal among the other brackets provided Twenty-seven percent said they were 26–35 29% said 36–50 and 33% said they were 51 or older The big question: Why More than Trump … really It’s probably no surprise that most respondents were very or extremely concerned about the future of science On a scale of 1 to 5 to rank their concern nearly 52% chose 5 (extremely concerned) and another 36% chose 4 We tried to pin down more specific motivations for marching by asking people to pick the most compelling of four options The top choice (48%) was “I believe science is required to solve the planet’s pressing problems” Only 20% said they marched to “protest President Trump’s science-related policies or statements” Many have argued that the march is mainly about Trump—a sentiment that our premarch discussions with protesters around the world reinforced to some extent So either march organizers successfully persuaded crowds to accept that this was a nonpolitical event or people wanted to log a more affirmative answer in our poll About 16% labeled science funding cuts as their biggest motivation whereas only a few (3%) said that they marched because of how science had “helped my life” And now In our final question more than 900 people also left comments about their favorite signs or march moments estimated the crowd size where they were or elaborated on why they participated (Those comments can be seen in the detailed summary) A few expressed reservations about the day—“Scientists are part of the problem and have not realised it The March was excellent for those who already support science but it was not inviting for those who don’t” And some of the respondents looked forward instead of back “This was a stimulating day but it is only ONE day” one person wrote “Everyone needs to continue the momentum in their own way” in
