The paper examines the noise levels caused due to various sources at the site, and evaluates the conclusions drawn and their management implications. The trends in the types and rates of visitation and comparison between the noise levels in peak and lean seasons have been conferred. The paper finally illustrates the present and future impacts of noise levels and the desired management interventions, so as to ensure the sustainable tourism development in the area.
