Having received inquiries and demand for accommodation facilities near Hydel Tourism sites, it was decided construct new buildings and also to upgrade the existing properties of the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB), such as inspection bungalows, for the stay of tourists. These constructions will be undertaken in Munnar and Wayanad and the Hydel Tourism Centre has already prepared master plans for putting up accommodation facilities at these two popular tourist spots.
A range of boating facilities, from pontoon boats to speed boats had proved to be a big draw for tourists from Maharashtra and Gujarat at these Hydel Tourism sites. "Tourists were comparing the tranquil waters of Kundala with the famous Dal Lake of Kashmir, so we introduced Kashmiri ‘shikkaras' to add to the experience. Also as an added bonus for tourists during the Christmas holidays, it had been decided to open the Idukki arch dam to visitors till January 5, 2008. There are plans to develop some more Hydel Tourism sites during the next year, including Anayirankal," Kumar S told UNI.
