Karapuzha Dam, Kalpetta

2.2
#12 of 16 in Parks in Kalpetta
One of India's largest earth dams, Karapuzha Dam was completed in 2004, after almost three decades of construction. The dam was built for irrigation purposes--the surrounding area is poised to become a major tourist destination, but for the moment, the landscape remains largely rural and unspoiled.

  • Beautiful dam and park. There is an amphitheatre and garden. The amphitheatre is a work of art. The garden is getting developed and even at this stage is beautiful. The dam of course is the highlight with its island like formations. If the water is released then it is another spectacle since one can go near the shutters.
  • Awesome place to spend an afternoon and evening. Very beautiful garden. Best spot fo an evening walk. So refreshing. Nice sunset experience. Must visit in the evening. And the cool climate. Warm chills
  • This is a very beautiful place in wayanad, there is lake in one aide and hill in other side which enhance the beauty of the place by 1000 times, there is boating also available for entertainment. There are few canteens also there for quick bite, you can purchase local items also in these shops
  • The place is ok, considering the fact that it's a dam, but along with it got a beautiful place where some public gathering or events can be hosted. Preferably go there in the morning or evening in between not recommended, I did and it was pretty hot. In a nut shell a reasonable place to hang out with friends and family😋
  • Garden is well maintained. It is a nice place to just lay down and enjoy the beauty mother nature has to offer. You are charged fee for taking camera inside the garden.
