Big plans in store for Kerala's first Adventure Tourism Academy

Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Legislature’s Youth wing welfare society has proposed a ropeway at Shashtampara's Vilapinshala Village, which is where the State’s first Adventure Tourism Academy will be constructed. Other recommendations include cable car, adventure games like paintball, shooting, archery, kite flying, human gherao along with a team of experts to examine the correct safety precautions required at the academy.

TV Rajesh presided over the committee which included Anoop Jacob, Eldo Abraham, VK Prashanth, K Rajan, R Rajesh, KS Sabarinathan, I B Satheesh, M Swaraj. The team had visited the venue on September 4, 2019.

Main recommendations

During the training, the academy should be equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and top security measures.

The academy requires the services of a doctor as well as a clinic.

There should be long term courses at the academy and a special syllabus should be designed. The course syllabus should contain various adventure sports, along with theory and practical classes.

Rock climbing will be hazardous during the monsoons at Shasthampara and therefore adequate safety measures should be included. Hygienic restaurants and restrooms should be provided for the visitors.

Kadambupara which lies parallel to Shasthampara should also be included in the tourism project.

Trainees and trainers should be given accommodation. Another idea is to include tour packages during the holidays. They should organize special camps that include rock Climbing and sky cycling, as well as campfires and tents.

The tourism promotion council should expand their activities.
