THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  Nilakkal will become the base camp for the next pilgrimage season at the famed hill shrine of Sabarimala and vehicles of pilgrims would not be permitted to proceed to Pampa, said Devaswom Minister Kadakampally Surendran.

Surendran informed the decision after a review meeting of Sabarimala held on Tuesday. The decision comes on the wake of extensive damage at Pampa and nearby areas in the recent flood.

The base camp at Nilakkal will be arranged with parking facilities for private vehicles. Pilgrims would be transported in Kerala State Road Transport buses from Nilakkal to Pampa.

The government also decided to convene a meeting of Chief Ministers and Devaswom Ministers of southern states, Surendran said. Besides this, awareness campaigns would be conducted for pilgrims coming from other states.
