  • Its about 25 kms from Valparai. Drive to Sholayar dam is beautiful and serene. There isnt much to see around. Visit to this place with the catchment area is full would be recommended. Very limited eatout option.
  • Nice place... Less water as of now... Some watersports activities can be planned by the govt...
  • This dam offers a beautiful scenic view of the evergreen forest covered hills.. One of the must visit tourist places near valparai..
  • ATHIRAPALLY-VALPARAI ROUTE IS ONE OF THE BEST ROUTE FOR BIKE RIDERS
  • One of many dams in the region. Owned and maintained by Tamilnadu. Commonly known as Upper Sholayar Dam (Not to be confused with Sholayar dam at Kerala, which is few miles away from this dam)
