    There was a concept of conquest and achieve at all cost, even if it affected the native inhabitants of an area. Although this is improving, it is still obvious that people don't always think about the customs and spiritual aspects of their adventure. For example, thousands of people still climb to the top of Uluru (Ayers Rock) even though this goes against the wishes of the traditional inhabitants of the area. When the motivation is to succeed at all cost, not only do local customs suffer, but also the environment. Base camp in the Himalayas is littered with the leftovers of past expeditions, but it is interesting and heartening to see that attitudes are slowly changing. Many people involved in adventure activities today have high environmental standards and understandings. Good examples of this are the minimal impact bushwalking codes and the environmental regulations within the trekking industry, which are starting to make adventure activities more environmentally friendly. In the past adventures have not always been sensitive to local cultures.
