4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

We happened to visit Emerald dam and were quite fascinated. In the afternoon there was no crowd and the area was very quite. The scene from the dam is really awesome. Had a wonderful time.

“Serene Emerald lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

Dont try to get down to the lake - its quite deep and can be quite dangerous. There are no locals around for help.

“Keep Shooting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

The Emerald Lake and the surrounding wilderness immerses you for hours, especially if you a long of fresh breath and are photo crazy! Can easily get lost for 2 hours in and around this place!

“Serenely spectacular!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I celebrated my 60th birthday on the shores of this stunning and serene lake. It is a beautiful spot though the drive up to it is long- but then getting to an isolated and beautiful spot in India always is! Of course, you have to be meticulous about not littering this lovely area. However, just as we were leaving, some forest officers seemed to be questioning some bikers who had come there. I don't know if special permission has to be sought to go to Emerald Lake. We just landed up there.

“Dam/Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This place is visited by very less number of people I think because when we went there there was no one except us and our cab driver also had great difficulty to find this place. Its' a very old dam called Canada dam here and both side of it has water bodies which are between mountains making this a beautiful location.
