It was very crowded and getting tickets was a difficult task as people were everywhere. Hope some one (staff) can stand outside the ticket counter to monitor the unruly crowd. We went on speed boat for 15 minutes and enjoyed it a lot in spite of having to wait there again for 1/2 an hour for our turn. My sons... More

One of the main attractions in Mattupetty is the beautiful lake, and the Mattupetty Dam, which are ideal picnic spots. Boating and horse riding facility available here. Nothing great other than this.

Well the dam has a nice scenic view, it's really big. But there is nothing special i found about this place. It is just another dam.

If you had missed this attraction don't bother. Nothing amazing and breath-taking. Just a reservoir and few roadside shops selling cold drinks and other pitty things.

Nothing to say about this dam, as all the dams looks same. But scenery wise, we can take photo shoots and also there is a speed boat ride, that you can try out.

We tried the speed boat ride in this dam. Nice enjoyable ride for 15 minutes in a speed boat. Takes you around the corners of the dam. Have option of pedal boats down the road as well. Otherwise, it's a small dam like any other.
