More than ten thousand farmers and herdsmen in Bu'erjin County are involved in the tourism business. And the tourism revenue accounts for one third of the county's annual income per person.
But the booming tourism industry has brought some problems, such as over-crowding and pollution. The local tourism bureau has closed down temporary eateries scattered around the scenic area.
The tourism bureau has also invited international environmental protection experts to evaluate their situation and offer ideas regarding conservation. Local people have also been taught how to protect their environment.
