Tourism sites in Kerala will be cleaned up during a new state-wide initiative.

A five-day sanitation programme is underway at the major tourism hotspots in all 14 districts of Kerala.

The scheme will be held at Kovalam, Veli and Sangumugham in the state capital of Thiruvananthapuram, while in the Kollam district, the main beach and the banks of the Ashtamudi Lake will be made even more appealing to foreign visitors.

Many people book flights to Thiruvananthapuram to experience Kerala’s natural beauty on adventure tourism holidays, so the news of the clean-up will be welcomed by most.

The sanitation programme will coincide with the official Gandhi Jayanthi celebrations. A huge variety of local stakeholders will participate in the scheme public representatives, local self-governing bodies, members of the tourism industry, voluntary organisations and the National Cadet Corps.

Most of the remaining sites that will be made pristine are along the spectacular coastline of the Indian state, while Bakel Fort and Kalpetta Town will also receive attention.
