3.1/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web
Take a walk along the top of the barrier and enjoy the view of an idyllic lake at Neyyar Dam, a popular picnic destination in Trivandrum for those seeking serenity and isolation. Created in 1964, the dam is a part of a large wildlife sanctuary protecting Asiatic lions. Sambar deer, gaurs and lion-tailed macaque also make home in the thick forest around the lake. Take a boat ride around the lake and see an aquarium and gardens near the dam. With a number of streams flowing in the lake, great many people come here to unwind and take a dip.

  • A beautiful place that lets you breathe out your tensions into nature. Whatever your reason to travel here, reach before noon. (All my travel directions are as if you're arriving at the dam with the reservoir on your left and canal on the right) There is a swimming pool next to the park lining the main canal. It closes at 1700 hrs. It's the only place which felt neglected and unhygienic. So, avoid any swimming here. Once you enter the premises through the main entrance, take your vehicle and climb to the top. You will be permitted to walk on top of the dam and head towards the boat club. There is a park on top with a viewing tower that's a must climb! Head further down and you will come across boating facilities that will take you for the lion safari, crocodile park as well as the deer park. View the pics uploaded for any further information. It's a great get away... try it if you can
