Mumbai,(DHNS): The Kodagu district administration has lifted the ban on tourists visiting the district.

The landslides and floods has affected road connectivity in the district. In the interest of safety of tourists, the district administration had directed all resorts, homestays and lodges not book rooms for tourists. Kodagu deputy commissioner P I Sreevidya said, “Connectivity is yet to be restored to Abbey Falls, Mandalpatti, Tadiyandamol and tourists cannot visit these places.”

She urged the tourists to adhere to the guidelines issued by the district administration.

After a month, a huge number of visitors visited Raja Seat, Bhagamandala and Talacauvery on Sunday. A large number of people were seen visiting the flood and landslide-hit areas of Indira Nagar and Chamundeshwari Nagar to take selfies.

The homestays and houses that were buried in sand on the banks of the stream at Madenadu are the favourite hotspot of the tourists.

The tourists were seen clicking photographs near the remains of the houses and wooden logs that were washed away in the devastating flood.

Scores of people visited landslide-affected areas in Tanthipala, Mukkodlu, Hammiyala, Meghathal and Emmethal.

Flash floods and landslides had ravaged parts of the district, cutting off connectivity to the district.
