NEW DELHI, April 27 � Fearing damage to the fragile ecosystem, the Government today suggested community-based tourism instead of mass or �five-star� tourism to protect the natural habitat in the Northeast, reports PTI.

�In the Northeastern region, because of the fragility of habitat and society, it is a niche kind of community-based tourism which will succeed and will be sustainable and not the five-star tourism or mass tourism because that can permanently damage the habitat and the society of these innocent people living in this beautiful part of the country,� said Tourism Minister Subodh Kant Sahai at a book release function.

Two books titled Sustainable Tourism Development of Nagaland and Tourism Potential of North-East written by DK Bhalla, Joint Secretary in the Ministry of Food and Consumer Affairs, were released by Sahai.

He said of late in most of the countries, there has been increasing demand for a broader perspective on the facts of tourism that go beyond any physical impact on natural environment and includes the consideration of how poorer sections of the community can obtain more benefit from tourism.
