“Fascinating Neyyar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2013

Enjoy the Dam on a rainy day !!!! They open the dam and you can see the man made waterfalls gushing out in a torrent .The acquarium is really mesmerizing and colorful and of course well maintained till 5 years before it was considered to be the Asia 's best acquariums. The park nearby proved to be quite entertaining for the kids.(Though there were puddles all around ,but then that is the best way for children to enjoy and love mother nature.)
We took an overnight stay at Tamarind a KTDC HOTEL.We were very well looked after and the food was also excellent only disadvantage was at the time of booking only if you give the Menu would be more better.Night stroll over the dam road and watching the night lights also is fascinating.

Next day morning we went for the Lion Safari. Unfortunately we were a little late for the boat trip so we could only see a lioness in the jungle .(If you take an early safari tour around 9 :00 am that would be better ).The alligator park was also enthralling. You can do a day tour also to the Dam.But a night stay provides you more time to enjoy and relax.

“Wild life safari park terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

The environment in Neyyar Dam is very beautiful; go enjoy that and skip the Wildlife Sanctuary!
We had to wait 2 hours before there was a boat ready to take us to the Sanctuary.
Finally, when we got there, we got in a van and drove into the park. After 50 meters we stood still as there were 3 lions.
After watching the van simply turned around and drove out of the park. Task accomplished, the driver must have thought.
We literally were in there for 5 minutes and saw 50 meters of the park.
A total waste of money.

“A Day in Neyyar Dam...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

Its one of the must visit places in Trivandrum...a calm and quiet place located far away from all those city noises....the most catching thing is its boating services and lion safari...dont miss it... it will cost Rs.250...Also,its a wonderful picnic spot with gardens and a swimming pool close to it...then there is an aquarium and a crocodile park which I must say that it need to be taken care more properly... Well its a place worth of your 2-3 hours..
