But don't confuse eco-tourism and outdoor recreation. Still, the eco-option does not imply active "use" of nature. This is not about kebabs and songs by the fire.
Eco direction implies a minimal human impact on nature; remember the main rules of natural eco-tourism:
- respect for the environment;
- maximum unity with nature without intruding into it;
- acquaintance with local customs and culture, care for them and their support;
- participation of residents in ecological tourism.
There are not so many places in Russia where you can fully relax in merging with nature. One of them is located in Kazakhstan near Almaty. This is a mountain eco-hotel "Lesnaya Skazka". The uniqueness of his project is that the hotel rooms are located on trees. Comfortable cabins, located on different levels, supported on solid tree platforms, and offer double occupancy.
The hotel is located in the Oy Karagai gorge at the very foot of the Tien Shan in the Ile-Alatau National Park. Surrounded by pine forests and birch groves, this hotel invites you to seclusion and relaxation in nature. Hiking and horseback excursions are regularly organized in the surroundings and on the Ak Tas plateau to get acquainted with the local wildlife. The mountain resort-hotel is a permanent partner of the ecological movement "clean homeland".
