Kottayam: The sleepy village of Vellathooval near Munnar in Idukki district is slowly becoming a tourist attraction with boating facility in the reservoir of Sengulam dam initiated by tourism department and Hydel Tourism Department of the Kerala State Electricity gaining popularity.

This has also improved the commercial activities of the village with more eateries and logistic providers coming to the area.

Tourists visiting from other parts of the country and abroad to Munnar have started coming here.

A panchayat member said that the area is going to be one of the best boating sites as the reservoir would have water during all times at a particular level whereas the level in Kundala and Mattupetty where boating is famous falls during summer.

The tourism department should also take the help of private parties in providing more facilities to the tourist like Clean comfort stations and better car parking facility.
