PATHANAMTHITTA: Adavi Eco-Tourism Centre, located 10 km from Konni town, is fast catching up as a major tourism centre with the opening of tree huts on the bank of Kallar river. If the flow of tourists to the picturesque location in the evergreen forests under the Konni forest division during the Onam holidays is any indication, Adavi is poised to become an important tourist attraction in the near future.

The recent opening of tree huts, numbering six, at Adavi near the terminal   point of the bowl boat riding, boosted the prospects of the tourism centre.

With the launch of online booking for the tree huts, `4,000 for overnight stay for a family of four members per hut, the tourism centre got a further boost.

Though the restaurant block is yet to open, arrangements for food are made available for the tourists at the tree huts. Though lack of basic facilities like hygienic food, potable water and transport facilities are posing problems at Adavi, hundreds of tourists, including foreign nationals, visited and enjoyed the flora and fauna of the evergreen forest a day here.
