Hydel Tourism: Boat service to start soon in Kallarkutty dam
Kallarkutty (Idukki): The power department’s hydel tourism project in Kallarkutty dam is going to be realized soon. The pedal boats have been brought as part of beginning the boat service. Hydel Tourism authorities said they will bring speed boats also in the coming days.
Four pedal boats and one speed boat are allotted for the tourism project here. The construction of boat jetty near the dam is in its final stage. The boat service is likely to be helpful for the travelers who go to Idukki from Munnar through Kallarkutty.
The project will be inaugurated by minister M. M. Mani by the end of this month. There at least a dozen places that allows distant views such as Aalppara, Nadukani and Kattadippara and also Chenkulam, Panniyar and Neriamangalam hydro-electric projects near Kallarkutty.
Since it is a junction of the roads to Idukki, Adimali, Nedumkandam, Konnathadi, Kattappana, Rajakkad, Bodimettu and Lower Periyar, the boat service will be helpful for tourists who visit the place.
