Idukki: Tourists can enjoy India's longest glass bridge in Vagamon of Idukki in Kerala from today after the inauguration by Tourism Minister Muhammad Riyas at 5 pm. The breathtaking 40-meter-long glass bridge has been built at a cost of Rs 3 crores by the District Tourism Promotion Council in collaboration with private companies. It is also the deepest cantilever bridge in India as claimed by the Minister.

For both children and the elderly, the Adventure Park at Vagamon has created a unique, exhilarating experience. DTPC and Bharatmatha Ventures made it possible to build the glass bridge. Specially crafted glass was imported from Germany to be used in the construction of the glass bridge. The bridge's 120-foot length required 35 tonnes of steel in addition.

 

At a time, thirty persons can walk on the glass bridge. The cost is 500 rupees per person. At 3,500 feet above sea level, the glass bridge allows us to glimpse the Mundakayam, Koottickal, and Kokayar regions once we have entered it. It anticipates that the glass bridge will promote tourism in Vagamon and Idukki. In addition to the glass bridge, the world of adventure awaits the tourists at Vagamon like Rocket Ejector, Giant Swing, Zipline, Sky Cycling, Sky Roller, and Bungy Trampoline. Rs 6 crores have been spent on this.
