  • It is just 20 kms far from Asansol megacity. This dam is over Barakar River. Its actually situated in Jharkhand (border of WB). Spendid place for picnic & sight seeing. Boating facility is available. 
  • paradise for nature lovers ,full of greenery surroundings and in middle of it this dam with full of water and its good looking spot for tourist and land of islands . 
  • as i went there in the rainy season so it was not at its best, is what i heard from the locals. still its a nice retreat sort of... 
  • Beautiful place. Calm and quiet place. Offers splendid view of the lake.
  • Excellent place. Calm and peaceful. Some tips for new travellers :- *if possible, try visiting the dam on your motorcycle then you can even explore the whole lake because walking the full dam and the whole stretch of lake will be painful. *go to the other end of the lake where there is a green stretch beside the lake. Park your bike near the lake and get the Ladakh wala feeling. *if you go for boating dont book from the counter, instead walk down to the boat and u can bargain them for the whole lake ride and not just to the spoon island. *if you want to view the deer park, visit the dam after 10 am because deers don't come out before that. And you can only view the deer park from the dam itself. So better park your vehicles before or after the dam because parking and photography is not allowed on the dam. *though everyone have their own preferences, still i would suggest you to stay at hotel Yatri niwas. The rooms are cheap but tidy. Foods are good and the managements are very helpful.
