Ukiam is a prime example of how a mismanaged tourism industry could ruin a natural resource.
A land of many vistas, Ukiam is a shallow riverbank area in the Boko region in Assam. But a completely unregulated influx of tourists has severely affected the place. Imagine a small beautiful riverbank and put in a 1000 people, more than 30 buses, and tonnes of wastes dumped into the forest and river.
This photo is just a glimpse of how beautiful this place actually is.
The reality, however, is much different.
