  • The dam is one of the earliest constructed in India..dating back to 1953. Best time to visit maithan is during Oct to Jan..pretty pretty weather..and very peaceful atmosphere. A must visit.
  • A very very beautiful place, so near to Kolkata. Only 4 hrs drive from Kolkata. The road condition is excellent. Nice places to stay at Mazumdar Niwas of DVC, WBTDC tourist lodge and Hotel Shantiniwas.
  • The dam is on Barakar river... there is another dam Panchyet on Damodar river and it is hardly distance 9km (straight line distance). These two rivers meet nearby... there is a beautiful island at the confluence...
  • Good place to go on a "not so hot summery" day. Try the boat ride, or a paddle boat. Nice scenery and loads of street vendors with ice creams, chaats and other local stuff. road from Kolkata to Maithon is good.
  • Great place to chill out. One of the best place to visit in Jharkhand.
