This incident underscores the urgent need for greater environmental stewardship and responsible tourism practices. As destinations like Trunyan Hill gain popularity, it becomes imperative for visitors to uphold principles of sustainability and leave no trace behind. Failure to do so risks irreparable harm to these precious natural treasures.

Many people are curious about watching the beautiful sunrise at Trunyan and decide to go camping there. However, this leads to a lot of trash being left behind by the increasing number of hikers. As a result, some hiking groups feel ashamed and start picking up trash at Trunyan Hills.
