“Uravu Bamboo Grove” is an eco-friendly community tourism project located on the elevated and picturesque mountain plateau of Wayanad, Kerala, southern India. Situated just outside the peaceful Thrikkaipetta Bamboo Village and surrounded by rice fields, the stunning Uravu Bamboo Grove encircles a beautiful pond and a bamboo grove.
The main objective of the Uravu Eco Links tourism project is to develop and run a sustainable, eco-friendly tourism venture by involving and benefitting the local community. The villagers take part in the management of the project, which features innovative building designs based on latest environmental standards, locally sourced materials and ideas of local artisans. These homespun designs are paired with local knowledge of sustainable construction and an enthusiastic team of local and international experts in the areas of architecture and design, engineering, innovative water and energy management, tourism and craft.
The project is currently organized by Uravu Eco Links, a company floated by members of the Uravu Trust, which has 15 years’ experience working with bamboo and the local community. The project is therefore well-anchored in the milieu and resources of the village and aims at providing work opportunities, in the process, enabling all community members to meet and mingle with visitors – encounters that can be, in more ways than one, an enriching experience for all. It is predicted that the Bamboo Grove Project could also act as a future model for other community endeavours such as waste and energy management.
