Had a great time visiting the dam. It was an awesome experience visiting in the rainy season. You get nice junk food at a cheap price. Lovely atmosphere and great people.

"Breathtaking view"

Good view of surrounding hillside and tea estates. But there was not much water in dam during our visit. Has horse rides for the adventurous, but can be risky down the slopes!

"Hill stations have nice scenery around"

Just look around while going to hill station. You can park your vehicle at any side of the bridge and look around. If you have shortage of time then dont spend more time here as there are more nice places to visit ahead of this.

Very beautiful place to visit for the people who love to see beautiful mountains and who enjoy speed boating in the lap of mountains. People of Munnar are very helpful and you can ask for anything from anyone, they are always there to help tourists.

About Mattupetty Dam

The beautiful hill station of Mattupetty is a 13 km drive away from Munnar. The Mattupetty Lake and Dam is enroute to Top Station and is situated at an altitude of 1700 m. You will often see people enjoying a lazy picnic here. Visitors love the panoramic view of the dam surrounded by wooden hills and tea plantations.

Boating is a popular activity here. The DTPC (District Tourism Promotion Council) Idukki has good facility for boating and has a fleet of speed boats, row boats and pedal boats.

You will love trekking in the Shola forests around Mattupetty which is also home to a variety of birds. Walk along small streams and follow its meandering path till it falls down the hillside as a waterfall. The hill-side is dotted with pretty waterfalls that add to the attraction of the place.
