There are picnic spots available. There is an aquarium too. A good place to relax the mind. Carry food and some snacks.

You can see extremely beautiful locations if you go for boating. Don't miss the aquarium near the dam. Also, the prices are reasonable. Do carry some eating stuff if you are travelling with children.

Infrastructure of the area has seen it's best days. In the past the Dam and area might have been worth of visiting and a place to have nice day near nature. Nowadays Dam and whole area is only a nice place to see, nothing else.

There is safety gear in the boat but they don't insist or assist, so they keep lying in the boat. 30 minutes ride cost 900 for 7 people. We took that and really... More
