Matupetty dam is an average dam and with only a single gate. The attractions however, here is the boating and the echo point which is about 10 kms from here. It is one of the most picturesque places of Munnar and not to be missed

Although its far off from the main town of Munnar, its worth visiting this place for boating. The boating ranch is down the hill and one needs to walk down the hill to reach the boats. Make sure you reach before 4pm as the ranch shuts by 5pm.

Speed boat is attraction but would be closed in rainy season. Dam is small dam, not a scenic place. Friends who enjoyed speed boat say one should enjoy in small speed boat instead of group.

The dam is very amazing place to visit. Its small, calm and very well maintained. Lickily when we went it was cloudy and weather was fab. The flow and noises are not much and not much commercialization has happened. Great place for a walk.
