MADIKERI: The Kodagu district administration has lifted the ban on entry of tourists to the flood-affected Kodagu from September 10. Rescue-cum-relief operations are going on in full swing in the district, which is reeling under rain havoc caused in the third week of August.
However, tourists are not allowed to visit Abbey Falls, Mandalpatti and Tadiyandamol as the road repair work is under progress.
Earlier, Deputy Commissioner P I Sreevidya had prohibited tourists from staying in hotels, resorts, home stays, guest houses and other private lodges and boarding homes till September 9.
“The re-construction and re-building of the affected areas and damaged roads are in progress and since rains have reduced considerably from the last five days, it has been decided not to further extend the ban,” the order stated.
A copy of the circular has been forwarded to Kodagu District Hotel and Resort Owners Association and Kodagu District Home Stays Association.
