Ramakalmedu, known among super tramps as the land of the wind is undoubtedly a must-visit when it comes to travelling across South India. In a recent turn of events, the local people along with the ‘Janamythri’ Police Officials are all set to launch Ramakkalmedu Marathon with the motive of grabbing Ramakalmedu, a position in the global tourism landscape. As a part of this initiative, Ramakalmedu will witness one of its kind half marathons from Parathodu to Ramakalmedu on April 22, 2017, Saturday.
Even though a good ratio of North Indians, as well as Tamilians, visits Ramakalmedu, the lack of basic facilities being a major concern, keeps away foreign tourists from this heavenly destination. The locals demand a tourism development model utilising the existing cardamom plantations by incorporating various tourist activities like Jeep Safari, Plantation Tourism, and Trekking. The immense tourism potential of adjoining areas like Thooval waterfalls, Pushpakandam, Kailasapara, Anakkaramedu, Maankuthimedu etc. are also to be considered. The main agenda of the marathon is to transform Ramakalmedu into a midway spot for tourists visiting Munnar or Thekkady. The organisers also announced the participation of famous athletes from all around the state of Kerala showing their support to this initiative. The marathon commences at Nedumkandam. The participants will receive Jersey, Prize Money, Certificate, Medal, food and Non-Furnished accommodation.
