Nice Landscape. You can just stop and take few photos. Nothing else apart from few shops. Walk there for few mins. Shouldn't take you more than 30 mins to cover the place

This is a pretty dam surrounded NY rolling hills and tea plantations. The local access points are surrounded by stalls from local traders. The traffic is appalling with the road blocked in both directions. Get there early.

This is on the way to Top Station. You can choose to stop by and spend some time probably for a tea break. It has a good view. We did not stop here because it was crowded and also raining. If you go here during summer season, you can be lucky to spot some wild elephants. Also heard there is... More

Dam is not that much maintained. But we can enjoy the greenness and chill water. You can bypass it if you are not much interested.

Make this spot as a checkpoint in your itinerary. Not to be spent or stay long on this place . Take photographs, dip your legs in lake and get a view of dam . That's it . . . All these things will not take more than 20 minutes and then just move on

this place just grows on u while u stand watching towards the lake in front of you....the view of lake with mountains covered in cloud and mist will absorb u without letting you know...take a walk on the bridge for sometime and just enjoy the nature's miracle !!
