        • GUIDING CONCERNS OF THE PROJECT
        • Sustainable tourism is envisaged as leading to management of all resources in such a way that economic, social and aesthetic needs can be fulfilled while maintaining cultural integrity, essential ecological processes, biological diversity and life support systems - United Nations World Tourism Organization
        • ECO _TOURISM
        • Minimize Impact, Build Awareness & Respect
        • Ecotourism is about uniting conservation, communities, and sustainable travel. This means that those who implement and participate in ecotourism activities should follow the following ecotourism principles :
        • . minimize impact
        • . build environmental and cultural awareness and respect
        • . provide positive experiences for both visitors and hosts
        • . provide direct financial benefits for conservation
        • . provide financial benefits and empowerment for local people
        • . raise sensitivity to host countries' political, environmental, and social climate
        • SOME KEY FEATURES BEING INTEGRATED THE PROJECT INCLUDE:
        • TRADITIONAL LAND USE
        • The land that the resort is being developed on was traditionally a farm land. Our attempt is to revive the site as a Bio-dynamic farm. This would have multiple benefits:
        • - Would revive land use patterns and diversity, optimize use of land.
        • - Would provide organic food and vegetables for the guests and staff of the project.
        • - Would allow Guests (largely an urban audience that would include families with children) to first hand experience indigenous farming techniques – a Rural lifestyle
        • - Would empower local farmers by propagating Bio-dynamic / Organic farming techniques among them.
        • GREEN PLANNING & ARCHITECTURE
        • - Locally available materials and skills used together with contemporary building techniques.
        • - Use of recycled material wherever possible
        • - Use of passive cooling / heating techniques
        • - Use of alternate energy sources such as solar / wind (subject to studies),
        • - Grey water recycling, rainwater harvesting & storage,
        • - Use of locally available skills such as weaving , pottery, etc evolved further with contemporary design intervention to produce a range of products for use in the resort. These could also be marketed by the artisans themselves through cooperative initiatives.
        • INCLUSIVE OPERATIONS
          • Local people would be used to staff the resort as far as possible to deliver an authentic Himachali experience
          • The resort would partner with local villages and communities to offer guests a sampling of authentic local customs and traditions
          • Local cuisine along with variations would be served at the resort restaurants
