Established in 1987, KNPS has tried to achieve conservation of natural resources and the needs of visitors. Its main management activity is to conserve natural resources including restoration of endangered species.
Also it provides pleasant and safe environment for visitors who visit the national park and use various visitor programs.
Eco-Tour can be defined as ‘a meaningful tour’ that allows the people to understand and interact with nature, without disturbing the balance of the ecosystem. It promotes an idea that the conservation of natural resources is an economic opportunity for the local residents’ (The Eco Tour Society, 1991).
The goal of national park eco-tour is we utilize natural and cultural assets as object of tour without destroying them . The tourists participating on the Eco Tour of the National Park may contribute to the conservation of biological diversity while helping the welfare of the local residents and offering an opportunity for the children who are the leaders of the future generation to experience the nature.
