The dam itself is great and you must visit from it's top. Excellent view and magnitude of the construction. Then all around the dam you have plenty of nautical activities places and hotels and resorts and small spots. Plan a weekend to visit it all around... The nature, the water sports activities, the small river beaches. Very good to recharge... More
