Karapuzha Dam, Kalpetta

(1.6/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Visit Karapuzha Dam, one of the biggest earth dams found in India. Taking 27 years to complete construction, the dam was complete in 2004 with its primary use for irrigation. Visitors to the dam state that smaller vehicles will not be able to access majority of the road during rainy seasons, however this is also the best time to see it as the dam will be full of water. If staying nearby, a quick visit to this dam will provide expansive views of the surrounding scenery.

  • This dam have good scenic view, but not much activities except the walk around the pathway of the dam. No entry fees. still some maintenance work is going on. 
  • Banasura is better to visit as you will have boating there which is missing in Karapuzha; though this is also good. 
  • The view of the dam is amazing, the fish spa there was awesome, what a feeling after u are so tired, its so scenic that one can actually compare this destination to a foreign one

  • Karapuzha dam is one of the biggest dam of Wayanad place. This is a good dam, which is also quite large. However, one can skip it as well as there is nothing extra-ordinary about this place.It is 15kms away from Sultan Bathery. This dam is very popular with local people. This dam is built on Karapuzha river.It's worth visit if you are driving a vehicle with good ground clearance. Hatch back car travellers avoid in monsoon. Good view of the dam but could not cover last leg of 1km to reach dam due to pathetic roads as we too had a hatch back.
  • A small dam, but the plus point was that it was not at all crowded. When we went, we were literally the only people there. So loved it.
  • Nothing interesting its just a dam. Also it was raining so i dint feel like spending much time there. I actually felt it was a waste of time.
  • Good place But under construction now
  • A small and newly constructed dam. Has nice view points
