Unspoilt and untouched by human footprints should be the right choice of words to describe a virgin destination. However, not seen by the human eye is a bit exaggerated term, but it is pollution and garbage associated with tourists is what all matters. It is the harsh grating of daily business and the widespread commercialization leading to an unplanned growth of infrastructure that defiles the virginity of an otherwise wonderful tourist destination.
