This place is awesome as here you can enjoy speed boating. Shopping, restaurant, spa, and much more. Prices are also not too high and all the items are in healthy budget.

Mattupetty dam is really a pictorial place in Munnar. It is 15 Km from Munnar town and on the way to Top station. You can enjoy in this place 2-3 hrs. Boating option is also available. A lot of vendor is here selling homemade chocolate and food. Really tasty and enjoyed a lot.

The place is beautiful with the picturesque view the lake, and the surroundings.
Boating facility is available if you wish to do, there are many small vendors selling fruits and other eatables outside the lake which is the local food.
Things must carry : A camera :P

It is around half an hour drive from Munnar city, through beautiful tea estates. Added roadside attractions of elephant park and horse riding along the way. Drive over the dam to reach an amusement park which has boating, and a cowboy park with fun filled activities for children, enough to spend the entire day

About Mattupetty (Offbeat Attraction)

voted as clean

Mattupetty (the Cattle Village) is a small town which has become a popular picnic spot among tourists visiting Munnar. Mattupetty is located at an altitude of about 1700 m above sea level, at a distance of 13 km from Munnar.

Mattupetty is famous for its Indo - Swiss Farm.  The Indo - Swiss Livestock Project, which was formulated around 1963, was set in Munnar in collaboration with Swiss Government.

Indo – Swiss Farm consists of a project site, a cattle centre and a research centre. The project site is located amidst sprawling grasslands for cattle to freely graze around. The project site also includes landscaped gardens which has many varieties of flowering plants.

At Indo - Swiss Farm, more than 100 varieties of high yielding breeds of cattle are reared. Visitors are allowed only in three cattle sheds among the 12 cattle sheds at Mattupetty.

Mattupetty Dam and Lake is situated about 3 km away from Indo – Swiss Farm. Tourists visiting Mattupetty Dam and Lake often go for boating at the lake to enjoy the scenic beauty of the place. Kundala Lake and Tea Plantations lie in close vicinity to Mattupetty Dam and Lake.
