Rope Activities

On a suspension bridge, smaller cables called suspenders run vertically from the bridge deck up to the main supporting cables. The suspenders transfer the bridge deck's compression forces to the towers via the main supporting cables, which create graceful arcs between the towers and down to the anchorages on each end..These towers support the majority of the weight as compression pushes down on the suspension bridge's deck and then travels up the cables, ropes or chains to transfer compression to the towers. The towers then dissipate the compression directly into the earth.

The cave was awarded by the name Vaisali caves soon after the movie Vaishali was released in the year 1988. This cave is man-made and the rocks blasted from here were used for building the Idukki dam. Although we see signboard stating “entry to the caves is restricted”, there were no guards present and people were entering the caves freely. The other end of the cave is towards the catchment area of the dam and the view from there is splendid. There are barriers at the end of the caves, but as we see there are in distorted form.
