"Amazing dam"

  • Posted 1 week ago
Wonderful dam, full of water. It was a great experience to witness it. Was amazed with the speed of the boat. And the photographer guys are bit irritating.

"Good Dam For Relaxing"

Its good dam to visit. One should also do the boating here. Spend at least 2 hours here for a comfortable time. Speed boats increase the beauty of this dam.

Even though it is a nice place to visit, the bite of honey bees made us run away from Munnar. Oh, it was a bad experience.

"Boat safari is fun!"

  • 6.00/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Take a speed boat trip in the dam waters at least for 15 mins. It would cost you 500 rupees. Five people can get on the boat at the same time. It is always fun!

The way towards Mattupety itself is very impressive. From there you can get perfect views of the hills and tea plantations.

"Sightseeing is good here!"

  • Posted 2 months ago
It is very nice to see Mattupetty, but mists and rains can disturb the trip. Travellers must to carry an umbrella. I feel there is a need to improve road facilities to attract more visitors.

Nice dam with beautiful view. There is a space there for photography especially on both ends. There is always a cool breeze blowing, which is awesome. There is a board where the history of the dam is mentioned.

"Good place to visit"

This is an OK OK place to visit. If you have seen large dams then you won't find this attractive. But traffic around this point is terrible. Very narrow road to reach there.
