The height of the duct from the river down below makes the sight breath taking. People with vertigo should not venture. It is long and therefore a good walk across. However the entrance was not attractively kept as there were a crowd of vendors and car park was not well assigned.

We took a walk along the bridge and it is really scenic & beautiful.You can take the steps down and there is small play ares for kids.Local fruits are cut and kept for selling by vendors. The main disappointing... More

Nowadays no one is bothering about this place. At least they could maintain the area clean. It's not looking like a tourist place, none of the maintenance work are happening there.

I visited this Aqueduct in June 2014. The driver to and from the attraction is through villages and rubber plantations. You get a breath taking view when you are on the Aqueduct. You get a birds eye view of the whole surroundings full of coconut trees and a stream passing below.

An excellent view of the mountains and valleys from the aqueduct built in 1967. It is one of the few dozen aqueducts that you may find all over the world. The hand rails on the aqueduct are broken and unstable. Keep away from the hand rails if you decide to walk along the duct.
