  • The dam is nice however the place is ill managed. The stairs leading down to the dam were in 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.
  • Mattupetty Dam near Munnar in Idukki District, is a storage Concrete Gravity dam built in the mountains of Kerala, India to conserve water for hydroelectricity. It has been a vital source of power yielding along with other such dams, huge revenue to the states. The large amount of perennially available water allows wild animals and birds to flourish. However salinity caused by irrigation and water-logging are of concern to environmentalists.
  • It's a beautiful place to tourist. Nestled in the greenish valleys of Munnar, the magical hill station Mattupetty offers tourists a fabulous experience and help them feel the calmness of nature. The undulating tea plantation of the hills here and beautiful rolling grasslands, makes Mattupetty a delightful destination, which deserves a visit. Located approximately 13 km away from Munnar, near to the famous Anamudi Peak, the Mattupetty hill town lies at a height of 1,700 meters. The main attractions of this alluring destination are Mattupetty Dam and Mattupetty lake, that plays an important role in water conservation and power generation.
  • Nothing much extraordinary to do here. The place having panoramic beauty. Local traditional shopping centers scattered there along the road which leads to the echo point. You can buy some traditional things over there like wooden plates, trays, stands etc. Try visit this place once and enjoy the scenic beauty, landscapes. You can opt for speed boat ride it is really fun, we were unlucky to do so. The water of dam is very deep so do take precautions. Other than that nothing much you can do here!!
  • Beautiful place. Very scenic on both sides of the dam. There are some boating activities available to enjoy the views up close. Few eating joints if you want to enjoy snacks especially corn.
