“Nice Dam with few speed boats to cruise around the beautiful scenary”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Its not a very big Dam, but the best you will get in Munnar. Though the place looks shabby the speed boat ride is quite good. Try to take this trip in the late afternoon after 2 pm as by then all the other visitors would be out and you will be the only one there with no waiting and lesser boats in the water.

The trip is a standard loop in the water and if your driver is a good one you can expect a few water splash on the way back. If you are lucky you might see the wild elephants, we did get a glimse of few.

“awesome view”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Lot of people didn't figured it out, but it really is an echo point. Awesome view must also try the boating option there, bit messy littered by the tourist should visit once. Good scenic beauty.

“Go speed boating and watch wildlife if you are lucky..”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

A very nice place to get some cool view and relax..speed boats are there for entertainment..and while on the boat you may get to see bisons/elephants coming out of jungles to quench their thirst..a worthy place to spend 2 hours of your time

“Magnificant!”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Had a low expectations when we visited the place but the location proved me wrong. The scenary is stunning as the journey around the lake. Watch out for wild elephants when you drive around. BTW, don't forget to get the young boys offering photo shot service to take some snaps of you and your family. It is very cheap and the pics turned out to be surprisingly clear and nice.

“April Fool”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Avoid, the only word that will echo after you reach there is "FOOL". There is a lake and some trees and lot of shops selling you goods at an escalated price so please bargain.
