  • Lovely place. I spent time at this dam. You can see two colour i.e one muddy & other normal as the same is discharged from the dam. One is for power and the other for irrigation. Nice place and you need to climb good height. You need energy. It is best suitable is early in the morning or afternoon by 3 pm.
  • Part of Thenmala ecotourism. Although photography is strictly prohibited here now. That's sad. Boating inside dam is available in a different site. Nice view from here though! After the dam you can exit through a jungle path. But don't expect other animals except monkeys!
  • The view of water that falls from turbine is very beautiful. Nice place to visit. Reasonable ticket rate (Rs 10 only). Many adventures activities are available here. You can visit Butterfly park, deer park also. ?................................
  • Awesome place to visit.Beautiful scenery.I request everyone should visit this place.Photography not allowed however you can have the photos with permission from guards.They are very co operative.Its better to carry some snacks with you otherwise after climbing on steps (about 200 steps) you will feel tired.Anyway gud windy conditions above the dam.Those who are lucky they can see the awesome colour combinations of land with water.Boating facilities also available.For boating u need to come down and go to the office.They will arrange bus to reach boat service station.You can see a lot of monkeys with their babies hanging on trees.Nice watch.Go for it if you are a true nature lover.
  • Thenmala Dam is a popular ecotourism destination in Kerala. A blend of modernity and comfort in the heart of pristine nature. Must visit place if you're in and around Kollam.
