  • Visitors are not allowed inside. They can see from outside or take a walk along the pathway that leads to the side of the dam. I did not go along the pathway. Just took a pic from outside at the base of the dam.
  • Awesome place!! One will be mesmerized to see the beauty! Great infrastructure, great view point, and the best part is the place is clean, pure reservoir water! A must visit place to enjoy the scenic beauty!
  • The serene around this place is worth of life-experience​. You will witness for many wildlife animals and birds activities while boating in Bhadra dam backwater.
  • Bhadra dam is one of the biggest dam among the state.It has storage capacity of water upto 186 feet from ground level & has capacity to produce 40MW of power,The water from the dam is released for agricultural purposes through right & left canals of the dam to various districts of the state.
  • It's a cool place, place especially for the couples, where you can be calm in the jungle.
