If you are ready to pit yourself against gravity and push your physical and mental limits, Kerala’s hills, mountains, and cliffs with their rigid climbs and steep slopes present immense opportunities for rock climbing. While Eruthavoor in Thiruvananthapuram and the Adventure Zone at Thenmala in Kollam are the most popular there are others like Munnar in Idukki and Kolagappara near Sulthan Bathery in Wayanad that offer an equally thrilling experience.
Situated on the outskirts of Thiruvananthapuram. Eruthavoor is fast developing as a rock climbing site. The craggy rock here is 160 ft in height. The Kerala chapter of the National Adventure Foundation regularly organises rock climbing caps here.
Situated 72 km from Thiruvananthapuram. Thenmala is home to India’s first planned ecotourism project. The rugged terrain of this land that lies 500 m above sea level packs plenty of adventure activities. The adventure zone at Thenmala offers options for recreational rock climbing and rappelling with rock of different heights and sizes, equipped with pegs and ropes.
