Malanad-Malabar River Cruise to change Kerala’s tourism face from Feb 15

 Thiruvananthapuram:Kerala Tourism is launching the pioneering Malanad-Malabar River Cruise Project next week, rolling the first of the 11 types of boat-rides that provide individual thematic experiences and attracts tourists to the less-explored places up the state.


The inaugural cruise boat will enter the waters on February 15 as part of the innovative project that aims to brighten the waterways in the northern districts of Kannur and Kasaragod. The first service will be on the route linking Parassinikkadavu and Pazhayangadi.


The project will also help showcase the Malabar region’s culture, rich with local legends and folk arts. The endeavour envisages 48 boat terminals and jetties along seven rivers across the districts of Kannur and Kasaragod. The work on two terminals is over.


Upholding the principles of Responsible Tourism, the project also ensures the participation of the local population. “It guarantees a better livelihood to the people around,” said Tourism Minister Shri KadakampallySurendran.“They include the fisher folk, farmers, drivers of cabs and auto-rickshaws, handicraft workers and handloom labourers,” he added.


KTDC will run the boats, six of which are being manufactured, in the first phase, by the Kerala Shipping and Inland Navigation Corporation. The project is being implemented by the government’s Inland Navigation Department and state-owned KEL, with MrT V Madhukumaras the architect.
