Kutladampatti waterfalls to get tourism focus


The Forest Department has chalked out plans to promote tourism activities in Kutladampatti waterfalls.

Funded by Tamil Nadu Biodiversity Conservation and Greening Project and the Tourism Department, the works would begin in a couple of months, said District Forest Officer A.S. Marimuthu.

“The State government has identified 25 sites to focus on biodiversity and promote eco-tourism. Kutladampatti waterfalls is the only site identified in Madurai district. The focus will be on prevention of fire and poaching in the reserve forest and removing invasive tree species. A trekking path will be laid in the Sirumalai hills where the falls is,” he told The Hindu on Tuesday. Under the project, Kutladampatti was the only identified site that was not in the Eastern or the Western Ghats, he added.
