The Poomala Dam and Lake is a very calm, serene and beautiful place for a short trip. It is near to Thrissur and one can spend 2-3 hours here away from the noisy city. The road to the dam site is good and well maintained. It is an upcoming tourist spot so amenities are basic.

Just 12 Kms drive from Thrissur town. There is not much attractions in Poomala. Just a small dam and nice surroundings.

The place isnt worth a visit. It may be a spot for the locals to spend their evening, but not for the tourists. It doesnt have any park. Nor is it maintained properly. All that you see is a body of "water" and some trees, but not forest. Better to sit at home.

more than a dam, poomala is a check dam. the pathway around the water is well maintained and it is very pleasant to walk.

Its totally empty place. Have been there a few times. Not a big dam. A moderate sized reservoir with a road on one side and greenery on the other is the only thing to see. There is a park too, not well maintained. The biggest attraction is the sleepy calmness. Nice place to take a break and may be some... More

This is a place very near to Thrissur Town. just 8 kilometers. Beautiful place, a dam site, suitable for an evening trip. At the entrance there is a children's play area. The best thing I noticed is a short trekking paths to the nearby jungle, but its not safe for families, not because of animals but I could see several... More

It's only 15 Km from Thrissur town. Once if you there you could feel calm and inner happiness of you mind. Thrissur DTPC already made soem primary arrangement for the visitors so you don't struggle there for anything. A must go place for those love nature bliss.

I went with my family. Very nice place. When you are here with your spouse, the love for your spouse will increase.... :) There was a very very light rain which boosted the ambience positively....
