  • Great stop over when you are entourage to Vālpārai from polachi. There is a small entrance fee and park and kids play area (old, not so well kept) . One can climb up the steps to reach the dam top...

  • A vast water body in the foothills of Valparai. Situated between mountains, this place looks extravagant and large. There is a long road on the banks of this place, you can have a long walk if you are fit enough. When you visit this place, you can remember seeing the place in many tamil movies. They have a small park and play srea for kids. The surrounding area is full of trees and lots of eateries serving fish dishes. From the base area to the top, there are steep steps which would feel little hard for older people. But the view on top is great and worth the climb. If lighting is good, this place can be a good place for photography. Also, the surrounding mountains creates a good scenery. When you climb up towards Valparai, you can have a gold glimpse of the full dam area. From hairpin bend 7 to 15. Be cautious if you are driving though. One thing to note is that the staff in ticket counter would try to con you. They will chsrge 20rs for 1 mobile phone but will not give the ticket. Please ensure that you ask and get it.
  • Good view of Valparai hills from the dam. Can experience a scenic view from top. Park is available for children with average maintenance. Other than small river flows across the park. One of the most important movie shooting spots in Pollachi area. Hotels and tea shops are available outside the park. Parking is sufficient. Entry and parking charges are bit high. Can go for relaxed evening and morning.
