  • Very good place to spend time alone. Very beautiful place. Boating is available most of the time. Lake is beautiful. Winter is the best time to visit
  • Munnar is good for its landscapes. One of that is this. Very crowded with tourists. More than the dam, the boating is famous. Dam is not open in October second week. A very small dam. You see the big reservoir walking on the top of the dam. The dam is on the way to Top station and echo point. Because the tourists the traffic's halts very frequently.
  • We reached early morning. before opening the park. So there is no rush. it is nice place relax. boating experience in speed boat was thrilling. kids enjoyed it well. small restaurant and children's park also there.
  • Very nice location with cool weather, lot of tourists, horse rides, boating and few shops. One can get a picturesque view of the dam lake with beautiful mountains and clouds in the background.
  • Amazing view. You luck to watch elephant also. I found off road ride for my #HIMALYAN
