No.1. Hill View Park in Kerala
Idukki Dam, as a tourism destination, has recently added a Hill View Adventure Park to its value. However, it seems that most of the dam visitors, even ‘Keralites’ haven’t heard about it yet. This is for the first time Idukki district initiates such an Adventure Tourism Project. This joint venture of DTPC and Vazhathoppu Service Cooperative Bank started functioning only two months back. Let’s see Hillview Adventure Park delights Dam visitors.
Activities that one can take part here involve Zip Line, SkyCycle, Burma Bridge, Bungee Trampoline, Gun shooting, and Pedal boating. And, of course, the mind-blowing scenery of the Idukki dam adds value to one’s time and enjoyment at this vicinity. The park has been attracting a good number of visitors of all age groups since its inception. The Hill view Adventure Park is very close to the famous Cheruthoni Dam. So, it’s easy to locate the spot even for a newcomer.
Why is Hillview Adventure Park unique?
As you know already, Idukki Dam has been a famous tourist spot in Kerala for several decades, and thousands of people from within and outside Kerala come there. However, those who come here at the dawn of this season hardly know about this new park and adventure facility until they reach here.
However, I’m sure that the park authority has done everything possible for the visitors to get the best tour experience from here. For instance, people can spend their leisure time and relax anywhere in the beautiful garden that has ample space of meadows in it. The officials and staff are remarkably friendly here. When it comes to the sanitation aspects, I bet, you will see the supreme level of cleanliness at the fresh up area. And, if you like to have a cup of tea, no worries, a coffee shop functions well in the park itself.
How Hillview Adventure Park delights visitors?
As mentioned already, Zip Line, SkyCycle, Burma Bridge, Bungee Trampoline, Gun shooting, and Pedal boating are the notable adventure activities in the park. The company that installed all rides here is already famous for its project at Thenmala Eco-Tourism. Since the operators of this park are highly trained ones, visitors need not worry about security issues.
Unlike many other parks, the authority has optimized insurance coverage as well for the park and its customers. If you are interested in boating, you can enjoy it in the lake on a pedal boat. Some entertainment items are exclusive for children below the age of twelve. Visitors will have to pay nominal entry fees; 20 rupees for adults and 10 rupees for children. If you carry a camera, you will have to pay an additional amount depending on whether your gadget is a still camera or a video camera.
Stakeholders of Hillview Adventure Park
Undoubtedly, the natives of the Idukki and Cheruthoni are some of the several benefactors of the park. As we know, they do not have other entertainment opportunities in this region. Also, you might often see there, some teams capturing either their wedding albums or short films. However, I admit that the most attracting element of this location is the beautiful view of the Idukki Dam. And, of course, the Hill view Adventure Park offers better entertainment experience to all visitors regardless of their age.
This amazing adventurous park has already gained its place in the list of other destinations in the region, such as Idukki Dam, Calvary Mount, Anchuruli, Panchalimedu, and Ramakkalmedu.
