“Banasura, The dream Place”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Banasura Dam is spread out over 50 Kms in the area. Speed Boating is the main attraction. A nice place for a family trip. There are more entertainment over there if you take a taxi and travel along the approach road in Thariode. And fishing in the dam, Swimming in the dam are very much enjoyable ( It is restricted in common places)

“Nature lover's delight...”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

I visited this place along with my extended family during the 1st weekend of Mar '13. The drive from Wynad town to this place was quite confusing though some direction boards were available. After some 15-20 km, it starts getting very scenic. On reaching there, one can either walk the kilometre stretch or pay 100 rupees for a jeep ride that goes through the Inspection Bunglows from the other side. The walkway on the dam was very calm, wide and sparsely filled with people though it was a Saturday. The wind blowing from the vast openness of the water made the small, thin plants rustle. The sound of it, coupled with the whistle of the wind on my ears, the tiny waves in the water, the enormity of the water body with hills placed in between them made me stand alone perched on the parapet wall for a solid 20 minutes without moving an inch. A must visit if one is touring Wynad. Outside the dam, one can find some Kerala-made memorablia and some food. Don't risk drinking coffee as it tastes bad. This place should preferably be visited on weekdays if you want to experience tranquility...
