ASTRA, by the Directorate of Sports and Youth Affairs (DSYA), is a first-of-its-kind facility in South India. This state-of-the-art facility houses the Low Oxygen Simulator that gives athletes the endurance and stamina to train in conditions similar to that at high altitudes. Athletes can now experience the same training conditions of altitudes up to 6000 m right in Trivandrum. Entry to this facility is mostly reserved for top-notch athletes/players. The facility also has 3 to 6 aerobic instruments and bunk beds.
