The dam has created a lake that has paddle boats and kyacks for rent. The dam also has a small hydro facility, and you can drive across it. Lots of vendor stalls in the area. The pretty bit is the lake, and boating.

Very crowded. 1-3 hours waiting for the boat. 1080 fee for 5 person speed boat, 1400 for 7 person, and 150 each shared large slow boat. There is an entry fee as well (40/- adult, 20/- kids) even if you don't boat. Has a mini activity park inside (500/- adult, 300/- kids).

Go for the activity park, or else skip. Avoid boating here and just do at Echo Point or Kundala Dam.

A nice place to visit in the day when one is in Munnar. A very quiet place which gets us close to the Mother Nature. The boating arrangement is there. A good place to sit and spend time together away from the hustle of life in the cities.

Various types of boating options are available. Good picnic spot to spend the day at Munnar. Monkeys are happy with people offering food.

We can walk over the bridge and have a view of the dam and click few photos.

Note that, the roads are very narrow & there can be huge traffic jams in the weekends.

Completed in 1953 the over 80m high dam serves to provide (mainly) Kerala of hydro-electric power. The blocking of the Muthirappuzha river meant a huge artificial lake emerged. The dam area is exploited as a tourist attraction where boating is available. There are also some stalls where locals sell tea, coffee, snacks and other stuff. Parking space is limited.

The dam is 11 km northeast from Munnar town. I walked there through the foothills (Munnar - New Colony - Periyavarai - Reserve Forest - Carmelgiri - Top Station highway). The hike was better than the dam.

Too busy on the weekend. Lot of merchants and hard to find parking. We asked a local taxi driver about family boating arrangements near and they directed us to another place by continuing on the same hwy (on the other side of the lake) by KTDC. That place was a lot peaceful and enjoyable for family visit/boating/park and other kids activities.

Though I'd you want to shop/buy cute/touristy stuff and haggle with merchants, you have to stop near the dam. It's certainly a good experience.

We visited in dec 2022 and the experience was ok. The whole experience was ruined by the amount of waiting - we waited for over 1 hour for the speed boat. Also, did not like that you purchase a ticket on parking counter only to find out that boating ticket is separate (designed that way to cheat the consumer thinking that boating charges is Rs. 40). We were not told of the waiting time at parking counter so we were stuck there and had to wait over 1 hour for speed boat. However, speed boat ride was worth it and we all liked. Tip: Avoid going to restaurant at lunch hours as it is highly crowded. Try to go before 1 pm or post 3 pm.
