This dam offers a great view of the Aliyar reservoir and its surroundings. But it is very poorly maintained. The water inside the park stinks very badly (as bad as the koovam river) and to add to the woes, the public dirty the park by leaving the leftover foods, snacks etc within the park premises. For the boating, there was... More

The dam has very vast area with a guest house. The long steps take us to the dam. The dam is very well cleaned and protected. But to play in water is very danger.

Be there during rainy and winter seasons and you will enjoy the stunning beauty of the hills behind. Be there in summer and you will swear at yourself. The park is very badly maintained with garbage everywhere, a must-not-go toilet and not attractive flora.

Stopped at Aliyar Dam en-route to Valparai. The place is about 30 mins drive from Pollachi. The approach road is very good, sufficient parking available and there are plenty of shops near the entry gate selling all stuffs and snacks. We went on a Saturday, there was good crowd visiting, the queue was long but thanks to efficient staff, it... More

I have visited this park with my hubby, the natural plants & flowers were good to see. But the park was so isolated when we visited. The maintenance was average.
