  • A great place for boating and taking in the views. It was very crowded and jammed with plenty of vehicles, so we gave it a miss. It is a popular spot considering the number of visitors.

  • Very serene place for boating. They offer cheap and affordable boating for tourists here. The surroundings are just amazing. The river is so clean and fully surrounded by hills and trees. There are also water bikes and couple boating. You get half an hour to one hour of boating time. I recommend going on weekdays because the dam water remains empty during weekdays. But if you visit Munnar I highly suggest you visit this place. There are also a lot of shops to buy souvenirs, gifts, chats and cold drinks. This was one of the most peaceful experiences for me. I highly recommend this tourist spot!
  • Good place. Small dam. But speed boating is so thrilling and you will enjoy a lot. 950/- per boat with 5 seat capacity per ride. I am taking about speed boat only. There are other options available. ......very thrilling ride !
