Permission is needed to see the dam

It is good to watch dam from top and panoramic view of surrounding hill tops, special viewpoint bay is there which gives perfect view and anyone can relax too. But to visit dam we need permission as it is tight secured by C.S.I.F.

Awesome and quite place

The place was one of the most quiet and peace place for holiday, the dam was awesome and its structure was built beautifully its. The place is quite dangerous because the river is quite deep and its 45 km long but man you don't see a place like this.
