  • Good place for boating. Place is usually crowded. The wait is usually 1hr. Boating is closed when there is rain. The water is less now, but in maybe 15-20 days the dam will be full.
  • A regular small dam. Good view. Weather is quite good. You would love to take a picture here.
  • The dam is nice however the place is ill managed. The stairs leading down to the dam were in a bad condition. Not sure if it's because the water level rises during monsoon but with the amount of tourists coming there I expected more. The place wasn't clean at all. The view however is very nice.
  • The dam is surrounded by beautiful mountains. You can go boating on the lake enjoying the green valley. Would recommend people to visit the dam during the early hours as it gets congested as the day moves.
  • Dam view is very nice and good. Nice place to hangout with your family or with your friends. House ride is there. This place is under KSEB. Lots of shops nearby, good for purchasing
