08KIKAKKAYAMKakkayam comes in the news of discontent as the Forest Department of Kakkayam is decided to close down a tourism ticket counter in the residential area of Kakkayam, which is located in the Western Ghats Mountain Range in India.



Nestled in the serene and green forestry in Western Ghats, Kakkayam is administratively located in Koorachundu panchayat of the Kozhikode District, Kerala. Known as the God’s Own Country, Kerala is dotted with many eco-tourism attractions. Kakkayam is now an emerging eco-tourism destination and it is located very adjacent to Malabar Wildlife Sanctuary, which is a cynosure of Kozhikode District. Kakkayam is place surrounded by the lush greenery. Going there need to take the permission from the Forest Department of Kakkayam. The Government of Kerala is now looking to set this area as an eco-tourism spot, by building the luxury cottages with the other leisure tourism and adventure tourism activities for the tourists.



But the local villagers led a movement to relocate the ticket counter as the Panchayat President Vincy Thomas, did not support the ticketing system to enter “Malabar’s Ooty”, because it is a strange system that the villagers need to buy the tickets to visit the houses of their relatives while entering Kakkayam.



The Divisional Forest Officer K.K. Sunil Kumar issued an order to close the ticket counter at Kakkayam and they will relocate it in two months.
