Banasura Sagar Dam, Vythiri

Banasura Sagar Dam represents the largest earthen dam in India, and the second largest in Asia. You can discover this dam and its surrounding landscape on foot or by boat--the later allows you to zoom across the lake's shimmering face and in between the reservoir's islands. Take in the dam's natural beauty at a slower pace and hike the terrain, with heights of 975.3 (3200 ft) above sea level offering spectacular views of the Wayanad District. Our Vythiri day trip website makes visiting Banasura Sagar Dam and other Vythiri attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Motor boat ride is the icing to the cake when u get to see the Complete lake view while riding on the boat.. The 61 km lake has great views to see.. 700 per boat max of 5 ppl in one boat.. Give some. Tip to boat driver he shall take you more interior places of the lake during the ride.. Just have fun.. Its said to be the largest natural earth Dam of India
  • Nice place. We have to pay for parking and to visit the dam. From entrance to the dam they provide jeep service but usually the place is crowed so if you're with friend its good to walk. Distance from entrance its almost about 2 KM we can see the beauty from entrance. There is a park up there.
  • Beautiful place. Very nice lake view from the dam well as in boat ride. One has to walk for about 10 to 15 minutes from entrance. If you are going in a group, it's worth walking.. otherwise, Jeep and TT available for pick up and drop service . Speed Boat tickets will get sold by afternoon.. But one can enjoy the view going in normal boats which takes 20 to 25 people at once.. they charge 120rs per head.
  • Absolutely beautiful place to spend the evening. Cool breeze will accompany you while you walk in the promenade. I liked the way they’ve installed solar arrays that double up as shade. There’s also a floating solar farm for you to see.
  • Amazing if you get to do speed boating. Just tip the boat driver a 100 bucks and to add a pinch of adventure. The view is fantastic. Worth the money yoh spend for the speedboat. Try to get on a single boat even if only two people. Although they would persuade for sharing it is best when just the two of you are in the boat. No need to shoot pictures or takra our the camera just enjoy the nature in its raw form.
