“Eco-cultural tourism is a concept where both ecological and cultural aspects of a landscape are combined together creating a tourist paradise. It is travel to destinations where both cultural and natural endowments are the prime attractions and thereby considered to be a potential strategy to support conservation of natural habitats along with economic sustainability particularly to indigenous communities”. (https://www.researchgate.net/scientific-contributions/2115005260_Cajee_Laitpharlang) Tourism related to both ecological and cultural attributes is becoming increasingly prevalent around the world [1-2] though travel to tourism sites of natural and cultural significance have existed at least since the time of Greek Antiquity, as reflected by Hellenistic world’s invention of the Seven Wonders of the World.
In more recent times, 157 countries have ratified the World Heritage Convention of 1972 (protecting the world's cultural and natural heritage) and 582 sites are inscribed on the UNESCO world heritage list.
