Glass-Bottomed bridges in Malnad (Karnataka) to boost adventure tourism


The excitement of walking on glass-bottomed bridges is poised to become a popular leisure and adventure activity for visitors in Kodagu. Following the success of a private glass-bottomed bridge near Udoth Motte in Madikeri, several property owners plan to construct larger and wider bridges to provide tourists with an exhilarating experience in the Malnad region (Karnataka).

According to Anitha Bhaskar, the deputy director of the tourism department in Kodagu, four property owners have applied for permission to build glass-bottomed bridges.

One prospective builder, Sudheer Kumar, overcame initial challenges and opposition to secure permission for his dream project—a 300-foot glass-bottomed bridge near Bhagamandala, after facing objections from environmentalists at his initial chosen site near Talacauvery. Another realtor, Vittal, is also in the process of converting his coffee estate site into non-agricultural land to pave the way for the construction of his own glass-bottomed bridge, adding to the growing allure of such attractions in the region.
