Done with making New Year’s plans? Even if everything is decided, there is something important you need to know. Kerala’s very own, much-awaited Jatayu Earth’s Center is finally open!
Jatayu Earth’s Center has been in the buzz way before its inauguration, all thanks to viral pictures of a colossal concrete sculpture of Jatayu (mythical demi-god in the form of an eagle) in construction. Now that the center is finally open for visitors, the place has piqued interest in local as well as international travelers.
Jatayu Earth’s Center, located in Chadayamangalam, Kollam, has not one but many unique attractions. Ourtitbits think that you should not give this place a miss. Here’s why:
- This new place is spread over 65 acres across four hills. The place is huge and has something or the other to offer for every taste and interest- hill top camping, trekking, jumaring, rappelling, ziplining, rock climbing, archery and even healing.
- The natural element of the place is well intact. So, for when you are rock climbing, you are actually climbing a real hill and not some artificially made boulder. Challenges are real, so is the experience!
- This Earth Center has its own paintball zone. And that too spread across a vast space complete with rocks and flora.
- The Earth Center is the home of now very famous Jatayupara, world’s largest bird sculpture, with a length of 200 feet, a width of 150 feet and a height of 70 feet. The sculpture is a marvel on its own.
- After a day full of activities, you can also stay here and get some traditional Siddha treatment in caves. The food court of the center has been made on a flat surface between two cliff faces. The moonlit dining experience here may just turn out to be a lifetime experience.
- The center is completely eco-friendly. In fact, it has a rainwater reservoir with 20 lakh lite capacity and even harnesses solar energy to meet its electricity requirement.
- The center will soon offer hele-taxi service for an aerial experience of the region.
