Silent Sails on Mattupetty: Eco-Friendly Electric Boat Arrives

Tranquil Cruising on Mattupetty Lake: Debut of New Electric Boat

Visitors to Mattupetty can now embark on a serene voyage across the lake with the unveiling of a state-of-the-art electric boat! This eco-conscious endeavor, spearheaded by the hydel tourism department, replaces the former diesel-powered vessel, promising a quieter and more environmentally friendly excursion.

The spacious electric boat comfortably hosts up to 20 passengers and showcases an impressive four-hour range on a single charge. This pioneering craft employs electric motors and top-quality imported batteries, reflecting a substantial investment of Rs 50 lakhs. Hydel tourism envisions up to 12 daily trips, enabling a greater number of guests to immerse themselves in the splendor of Mattupetty Lake.

Transitioning to electric propulsion transcends mere convenience; it signifies a crucial stride towards environmental stewardship. The erstwhile diesel engine generated noise pollution, potentially disrupting the local wildlife. In fact, concerns regarding its impact on elephants prompted a High Court injunction against boating activities at Anayirankal Dam. The electric boat at Mattupetty emerges as a solution, fostering a tranquil and healthier ecosystem for tourists and the indigenous fauna alike.
