Karthikappally ‘Thodu’

This is one of the oldest and most accessed inland water ways in the Kuttanad region. This was once the major lifeline for trade and export both with the foreigners and the local tradesmen. Presently due to construction of roads in every nook and corner, the ‘Thodu’ lost its privilege and is misused and polluted heavily.

There are may bridges across the Thodu... an old bridge in the picture

the waterway is now polluted and less accessed causing degradation and destruction and in the verge of 'extinction'... a pathetic site
