  • It is a small dam both in terms of length and height but it has still created a big and beautiful lake. The lake is surrounded by small hills. There are some shacks selling eatables and other items on both sides of the dam. One of the places to visit while in Munnar.
  • The reservoir side of this dam is an absolute scenic beauty. Superb for photography. A beautiful combination of water, mountains, clouds & blue sky. One of the best scenery i have ever seen!!
  • Very picturesque and calm / serene atmosphere. Can get quite crowded in busy times. Lovely views on both sides of the road.
  • Beautiful scenery. Peaceful. You can drop off from the entrance and walk across the dam road to the other side.
  • Can ride vehicles through the top of the dam. Located in between Munnar and on the way to Top Station. Can enjoy a peaceful walk through the dam.
