Ecosphere is a collaborative effort of the local community of Spiti Valley and professionals from diverse backgrounds. Their focus is to re-establish the critical link between the custodians of Spiti’s natural and cultural resources, and travellers, through the promotion of responsible tourism in Spiti Valley. Ecosphere aims to provide the local community with a sustainable source of income and an incentive to conserve and revive their unique natural & cultural heritage.
Spiti has been the nurturing ground for various initiatives of Muse, Spiti Seabuckthorn Society and Spiti Trans-Himalayan Action Group who have been working in the Spiti valley for over 10 years on a wide array of development and conservation issues. These organizations have come together under a common platform, Ecosphere, to ensure that each ones’ strengths can be directed towards the realization of the common goal of sustainable development for the entire region.
Ecosphere’s professional guides will guide EcoDance Tours participants through the Spiti Valley to learn about responsible travel, sustainable development, cultural preservation and traditional dances in the region. As a trip participant, your experience will help ensure the conservation of the ancient dance forms and distinctive natural and cultural elements.
