lsquoWiFi will boost tourism but harm Borra Caves in long runrsquo
| Tuesday | 12th February, 2019
Citing reasons for installing three Wi-Fi zones inside and outside Borra Caves, Reddy said, “Nowadays, almost everyone uses internet on their phones.
Moreover, acoustic radiation can adversely impact the life existing inside the caves, such as bats and some nocturnal birds.”The Borra Caves in Ananthagiri mandal near Araku, houses Pre-Cambrian era rocks.
“Wi-Fi is not at all required inside the cave, where a visitor usually spends one-two hours at maximum.
The cave, with its limestone structures of stalactites and stalagmites were, however, formed in the tertiary period.
“There has been nearly 10% rise in footfall in the last one year,” said Prasad Reddy, divisional manager of AP Tourism Development Corporation (APTDC).
