Kerala: First phase of Vayalada eco-tourism spot completed

 Tuesday, January 31, 2023 


Kerala Minister for Public Works and Tourism P.A. Mohamed Riyas on Sunday opened the first phase of the newly completed tourism amenities at the Vayalada eco-tourism spot. During the occasion, he said the Kerala state government would try to introduce a common design policy applicable to all major projects implemented under the Public Works and Tourism departments.

He said that the policy would ensure a sweeping change in the implementation of new tourism projects.

“There are proposals to make use of vacant spots under bridges for tourism promotion. Such locations can be transformed into attractive tourism spots with special attention,” said Riyas. Meanwhile, several districts have already come up with action plans to realise the idea.

The Vayalada eco-tourism spot has all possibilities to emerge like Gavi in Pathanamthitta, the Minister noted.

There should be efforts to promote hiking and trekking activities by undertaking online promotional programmes and navigation tools, he said.

The new tourism amenities at the eco-tourism spot include a facilitation centre, food court, and viewpoint.

K.M. Sachindev, MLA, presided over the inaugural event. Tourism Joint Director T.G. Abhilash Kumar presented the project report. Former MLA Purushan Kadalundi, DTPC secretary T. Nikhil Das, and local body representatives were present.
