This paper focuses on studying the role and rights of Sikkim citizens in engaging in ecotourism management through qualitative research. The research uses public participation theory as a method for the analysis of policy and organizational structure related to ecotourism. The role and right of the people to participate in ecotourism management has been growing and expanding ever since the adoption of the Sikkim Ecotourism Policy in 2013 and through the Sikkim Ecotourism council, Ecotourism Directorate, and ecotourism management at the community level.
