  • Superb place !! . .we enjoyed a lot in this place with my friends . There will be lot crowd during festival holidays . Fresh fried fish available always . But the only thing that disappoints is dirty water. The water is not clean and we need to bath one again in good water after coming out of dam.
  • Awesome place for Fun and Enjoyment.........when the water level is High..!!!!
  • Worst place for weekend .. No life jacket for our life .. People above 75 kg don't try crossing dam with desi boat ..
