  • 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.
  • It's nothing like all the photos which are available after you click this place. The dam is complete dried up with water level just below your knee. You can see the land beneath the water... But the weather is fine.
  • Nice place. Cool weather and fresh air. Boating facility is the main attraction. Superb view of reservoir and sorrounding mountains.
  • A decent sized dam with the mountains in the back drop. Boating is the best attraction here . 1km or so from the dam.
  • Nice tourist place in munnar. Speed boat available for ride. Beautiful nature view one side green hill other side dam . Must try the fresh carrots
