MADAVOORPARA AN ANCIENT ROCK
Madavoorpara is a lesser-known pristine destination situated 300 ft above sea level.
The place is noted for its cave temple and bamboo bridge. Which is one of the favourite place for tourists and pilgrims.
Walk up to the hill through the Bamboo Bridge to spend some time in a serene and secluded space. The 100 m long Bamboo Bridge is a sight in itself.
Besides the bridge, the bamboo huts atop the rock, that offers a panoramic view of the lush green surroundings, stand apart as the main attraction of the place.
A sense of oneness with Nature is inescapable here. A park that awaits children with its swings and slides is an added attraction for those who choose to visit Madavoorpara with their families.
Atop this rugged hill, near a leafless white-branched tree, is the Ganga Theertham, an evergreen sacred pond.
The village life experiences offered by Responsible Tourism Mission in Madavoorpara are sure to take you on a unique journey. The natives of this area cling to several traditional professions. Watching the expertise of the villagers in weaving the palms fronds, making metal weapons or doing other handicraft work will certainly tempt you to take a shot at them.
