Kerala’s highest bridge, recently inaugurated at Ayamkadavu, is all set to become a tourist destination. The bridge is 120 meters long and has been built across Chandragiri’s tributary Vavadukkam, connecting Pullur-Priya gram and Badiadka panchayat.

The bridge connects the summit of two hills and makes for a spellbinding view of the area.


According to media reports, “There is a proposal to build a glass bridge so that people can enjoy the view of the river, boats and the hills around the bridge,” said a PWD official. In the first phase, the official said an open-air stage, a food court, and a toilet block would be built at Ayamkadavu.

The bridge, tallest in the state, at a height of 25 meters, has been built for Rs 17 crore as a part of Kasaragod Development Package, the foundation stone for which was laid in 2016.

The bridge also significantly reduces the time duration between Kerala and Karnataka.

“A tourist centre will be developed around the bridge to tap the natural beauty of the place. This will boost the economy of the place,” said Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan, according to The New Indian Express.
