  • Not well maintained . Hill view park is open on all days. Good sight. Dam is open on public holidays Sundays. Recommended to go at evening or morning. Boating is available on all days
  • Good place to visit when it's open for visitors. KSEB will put the dates on when it will be open for public
  • Very beautiful place , try to reach there in the morning or in the evening to feel the colored sky and views . It is built on the Periyar River, in the ravine between the Kuravan and Kurathi Hills in Kerala, India. At 167.68 metres, it is one of the highest arch dams in Asia and third tallest arch dam. It started generating power on 4 October 1975.[1] Technically, the dam type is a concrete double, curvature parabolic, thin arc dam. This dam was constructed along with two other dams at Cheruthoni and Kulamavu. Together, the three dams have created an artificial lake that is 60 km² in area. The stored water is used to produce electricity at the Moolamattom Power house, which is located inside nearby rocky caves. The Government of Canada aided in the building of the dam with long term loans and grants.
  • Panoramic dam which produces almost 70% of the total electricity in Kerala. A walk through the top of the really unforgettable.!
  • One off the most beautiful location to visit, is idukki dam
