Nationalpark‐Tourismus in Chitawan (Nepal)


Müller‐Böker, Ulrike (1998). Nationalpark‐Tourismus in Chitawan (Nepal). Revue De Tourisme, 53(2):55-66.

Abstract

A future‐oriented study of behaviour and of the effects on the structure of tourism in Nepal of increasing numbers of tourists, using seasonally adjusted criteria.
The government and certain organisers did their best ("Visit Nepal 1998" campaign) to expand the areas open to tourism. From the results one can see trends developing in favour of adventure tourism and ecotourism on the one hand, and pleasure tours on the other.
Using the example of the oldest national park, Royal Chitawan, the effect which the behaviour of the different interest groups has had on the outcome is described in greater detail. Despite the increasing number of tourists, the situation cannot be considered one of mass tourism. The report shows that the local population suffers little if at all from tourism. The changes that tourism brings with it at the level of the local population are as yet scarcely noticeable, if at all. The government of Nepal is making efforts to keep destruction of the environment and various kinds of exploitation within acceptable limits, with the help of appropriate measures.
