  • Lovely view. Feels like heaven. One of the best point in Munnar. Water sports facility available. Can spend quality time lake side 
  • Mattupetty Dam is a short drive from Munnar. Set amidst scenic environs, it has boating facilities and if one can move a bit away from a road on foot, also a nice place for a group picnic. 
  • We saw this dam on our sightseeing in Munnar. Not too big but a very beautiful lake behind it. Good for a few pics only.

  • 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
