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.

Very narrow bridge connects between two mountain. Absolutely stunning view, with blessing of nature. Must avoid in rainy season. Only 1/2 person can walk at a time.

May be true at the time of construction in 1969. May not be holding this record still. Anyway i am not sure.Tallest pillar measures 110 feet n... More

This was constructed soon after independence for irrigation purposes. You can walk on the trough which is at fair height. Not recommended for persons have the fear of height. You can give a bye for this . Nothing to loose.
