Drive your vehicle only on the designated tracks (or encourage your driver to do so).
Protect all nature: no hunting or collecting of plants, animals, rocks, artifacts or firewood.
Camp and climb only in the official sites. Use gas stoves or charcoal for fires.
Minimize use of fixed climbing gear and chalk and avoid damaging trees and shrubs.
