The word “tour” is derived from the Latin ‘tornare’ and the Greek ‘tornos,’ meaning ‘a lathe or circle and the suffix -ism is defined as ‘an action or process. When the word ‘tour’ and the suffixes ‘ism’ are combined, they suggest the action of movement around a circle. A circle represents a starting point, which ultimately returns back to its beginning. Therefore, like a circle, a tour represents a journey that is a round trip.
I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer vacation in summer holidays in past month.

But have you ever thought that how this growing tourism does affect on nature? Yes, Obvious Tourism is growing in India so fast on a large scale. However, this growth is actually affecting the nature and us.
The populace of tourist place wants to grow more so they are inclining towards accepting the new lifestyle of visitors. The local places developing and forgetting their lineal way.

Run for Money
local civilians changing the way of earning. in the ancient time, they were only farming a way to earn. However, with the time earning way is also changing. Meanwhile, people losing their eternal way. So that new generation doesn’t know their original and factual ways.
Increase Tension and Hostility
Tourism can increase tension, hostility, and suspicion between the tourists and the local communities when there is no respect and understanding for each other’s culture and way of life. This may further lead to violence and other crimes committed against the tourists. Tourism sometimes led to the destruction of the social structure of a community. The more tourists coming into a place, the more risk of that place losing its identity.
Tourism can cause the same forms of pollution as any other industry: air emissions, noise, solid waste and littering, releases of sewage, oil, and chemicals, even architectural/visual pollution. Most of the tourist uses their own vehicle and it may pollute the pure air of that places. The more tourist comes and the more space and resources need for their service which affects on natural resources.
