“Balas Idukki Dam Visit”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

This dam is quite a big dam with 454 feet height and length will be roughly double that. Due to less rains this year water level was quite less but still it was adequate for Boating. As there were more guests waiting I could not avail Boating. During festive season boating is available and each trip lasts for 15 miniutes inside the dam. Mobile phones and cameras are not allowed inside the dam and one can deposit at the Cloak Room facility before entering the dam.

“Just a small dam.”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

If you have never seen a dam holding back a lake then OK. Otherwise it is just a small cement dam not worth the diversion.
