OverView of Vazhathope

Vazhathope literally means 'Plantain Farm'.  Probably abundance of wild plantain in the original forest lands of the area culminated in the name.  The general area was earlier very sparsely inhabited by nomads and tribal clans, who depended up on hunting and forest produce for survival.  Migration of people to this area started around 1946-47, as a result of the great famines after World War-II; and the government allowed willing farmers to clear forest lands for agriculture.  No history of the area is available prior to this period.  Even for the next couple of decades, no trustworthy history is available for Vazhathope, except may be for some Church records.  However such records are not to be fully trusted as the same were recorded from not a social but from a religious point of view.  It also has the hazard of glorifying the so called 'pillars' of the migration story.

The earlier occupants of Vazhathope were illiterate or only marginally literate.  However schools came up in the area in early 1960s, which gave a big boost to education.  Education facilities were only academic in nature till late 1990s when technical institutions also started functioning.

Ancestors of the village are mostly from the Muvattupuzha-Thodupuzha belt of Travancore having agrarian background.  Christian, Hindu and Muslim religious denominations are prominent.  Main occupation of the village is still agriculture like rubber, cocoa, rice paddy and black pepper.  There is a lot of dependence on government jobs.  A good number of youngsters have also moved out of Vazhathope in search of greener pastures.

Vazhathope is unique in the sense that it has two of the three dams that forms the water resorvoir of Idukki Hydro-electrical project.  One of them, the Idukki Arch Dam, is the biggest Arch Dam of the Asian Continent.  Vazhathope Panchayat also boasts of having the headquarters of Idukki District within its area and also the headquarters of Idukki Diocese (Papist).
