4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
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.
