The first natural tourist park will be in the Altai region
It will be created on the territory of building resort "Belokuriha-2". Initiative of Project belongs to joint-stock company "Belokurikha Resort", but officials supported the idea in the initial stages.
"Taking into consideration the popularity of healthy lifestyles and increasing people's interest in eco-tourism, we are convinced that the park will be increasingly in demand at the resort. However, it is impossible not to attach importance to environmental protection, saving the red book species of animals, birds and plants. Therefore we developed project of natural tourist park in the area adjacent to "Belokuriha-2" on behalf of Governor Alexander Karlin", says Deputy of General Director of JSC "Belokuriha Resort" Oleg Akimov.
The project is developed in the framework of the law "On specially protected natural territories of the Russian Federation". A working group is already formed to create the tourist park. Park areas will be laid out together with scientists, and the terms and stages of development were already defined.
The territory will be divided into several zones with different regimes of protection. It will be differentiated economic and tourist-recreational zones, where there will be construction sites, tourism and active recreation. The developers particularly gave attention to reserve, where it will be permitted only the protection and life support of natural resources of the park.
The park will be guarded against deforestation, shooting of animals, birds and fishing. However, tourists can try themself in fishing, photo hunt and to feed the animals.
