  • Good place to visit. Very big garden and also can see the dam nearby. There is ropeway which is unique attraction here. It can get crowded on holidays and festival seasons. Food stalls are not good...

  • Mampuzha dam was just beautiful. It is a great picnic spot. The entry fees was Rs.30 for adults and the stretch of the dam was huge. There was a swimming pool too. But extra fee for swimming pool. There are many beautiful flowers too. It is a great spot for photography and the ambience just makes you very peaceful.
  • Huge property, amazing views and good place to hangout with family or friends. Most of the things were not operational (Sound and Light show, Boating etc). It Could be because I visited on a weekday. I would recommend spending some time on the top of the dam soaking in the wind and the aura of this place.
