THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  Around 30 tourists, including some foreigners, have been stranded at a private resort in Idukki’s Pallivasal, located near Munnar, for the past two days, after landslides disrupted the traffic. The issue came to light after one of the tourists put out a video through their cab drivers seeking help.

According to reports, the resort, Plum Judy, has been functioning despite the warnings from the Disaster Management Authority and the district administration.

However, tourism minister Kadakampally Surendran said through his Facebook page that all the tourists are safe. He said he had asked the authorities to shift the tourists from Idukki to a safer place. He gave instructions to the resort owners and also spoke to the tourists who were trapped inside and assured all the possible help from the government. “The road to the resort was closed because of the landslide. All the tourists are safe. The government has asked the Army to help clear the road. Army personnel have already left for the location,” said Kadakampally.

The minister has also urged the resort management to provide food and all the other necessary amenities to the tourists for free. He has instructed that all tourists in Idukki, Munnar and the surrounding destinations be shifted to a safer place.

Tourism Director P Balakiran said that the tourists would be shifted to KTDC hotels once the road is cleared.

The minister also directed that all the tourist activities in Idukki district be temporarily banned until further notice. “Those who are in Idukki district should contact the district authorities or the tourism department if they need any help.
