Heavy Rain in Kerala: Tourist Spots Closed for Safety Amid Pre-Monsoon Deluge

As heavy rains lash Kerala even before the official onset of the monsoon, authorities are taking proactive measures to ensure the safety of residents and tourists alike. Several popular tourist spots across the state have been closed down due to the adverse weather conditions. In Thiruvananthapuram, the Ponmudi hill station has been off-limits since May 18, with restrictions expected to continue until authorities deem it safe. Similarly, in Idukki district, night travel through hilly areas has been banned, and off-road safaris are strictly prohibited to prevent any untoward incidents. Additionally, beaches are being avoided due to the possibility of strong waves, and in Thrissur district, prominent attractions like Athirappilly and Vazhachal waterfalls remain closed amidst heavy rainfall, emphasizing the priority on public safety.

Moreover, even in Gavi, access is restricted, with only pre-booked tour groups permitted to enter. This cautious approach extends to Varkala as well, where a portion of the renowned Papanasam Cliff recently collapsed due to the rain. While no official restrictions for tourists are in place, authorities are swiftly implementing safety measures to prevent any accidents or mishaps, underscoring the need for vigilance and precautionary measures during this period of intense rainfall and potential hazards in Kerala’s tourist destinations.
