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.

  • Nice dam view, you can walk all the way through. This would be good place to visit for curious children. Dam leads to a reservoir. Entry free for all, best time to visit in evening. 
  • 15 min walk near the dam offers good views of in & around! A lot can be improved to promote tourism, 
  • The view of the water flow near the Damn is pristine, the area is free from litter and pollution which makes it worth a visit, spend an hour and you can feel your lungs can perform better.

  • 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
