Very nice place to visit. Scenic beauty is very good, though the area is not very clean, it is a must visit.

No spectacular views available regarding dam Disappointing as nothing much was there and yet it was overcrowded.

I found this on TA by chance. Had to look at the pictures to confirm it was the same place our driver pulled up while passing through. We checked out the vendors and were not impressed, An old horse was saddled and apparently waiting to give people a ride. We actually wondered why people were there; Its just a dam.... More

Tucked away in a quiet place,the dam is a perfect destination for the relaxed traveler. It isn't very noisy and surprisingly, the vendors do not pester the tourists.Nothing much to do except walk down the steps to the lake and just chill.

The area itself was really beautiful. If you happen to come here, the speedboat is a must go as it only costs INR 500 for a max of five people. The speedboat itself is another great way to experience more of the scenery as it brings you more into the lake. Overall, the lake that the dam creates is scenic,... More

Could have been maintained well. Scenery around is nice, but nothing much to do. The area could be developed by making the water front better reachable and more activities around. Pony ride was expensive...
