  9. In response to diminishing opportunities for employment and a desire for eco-friendly tourism, Keralites have been encouraged to establish homestays • Because of input cost, this option if often only available to more affluent Keralites • A homestay is like a bed and breakfast, run by a single family, in which the guest can stay for any amount of time • The guest will experience the traditional life in Kerala as well as learning about the culture

  11. Environmental Impacts • Tourism has brought massive crowds to once beautiful, isolated areas • Kovalam Beach is an example of this, once the image of a perfect, undisturbed paradise, it has been overcrowded and polluted • In overcrowded tourist areas such as Kovalam, groundwater is extracted at unsustainable rates, often from illegal sources • This leads to a lack of drinking water for locals

  13. The backwaters of Kerala are becoming more polluted by tourism and increasing numbers of houseboats • The tourist-popular houseboats are a main attraction in Kerala • They produce a lot of pollution from their engines, and have no sewage system, so all waste products are emptied into the river • There is growing concern over the negative impact that the houseboats have on the environment • In response to this concern, solar panels have been installed on many houseboats to reduce pollution • Waste-deposite facilities have been established to prevent wastes from being dumped into the river
