“Good view - ok for a quick stop”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

You see a beautiful landscape from here and can walk on the dam to enjoy the view. There is a huge fence on the dam which will restrict the photos - so you have to go to the extreme ends to get unrestricted views.

Like every other famous tourist spot in Kerala, there are sellers of fresh fruits & trinkets right by it. And be prepared to be accosted by the instant photographers.

Overall, you can't / shouldn't spend more than 15 mins here. Park your car & stroll around.

Reviewed November 12, 2013

We stopped there for few minutes to click photos, and took a walk over the dam. The view is spell bounding.

“Overrated and unclean”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

We visited the dam to chance and see wild elephants en route. We just missed the elephants damaging a forest department jeep which was pictorially covered in Matrubhumi paper on 25 Oct 2013.
There is an excellent speedboat ride available which is a 15 minute value for money thrill. The bank of the dam is overcrowded with hawkers making the whole place dirty.

“Echo Point - just average”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

We reached the Echo point on the 25th October with great expectations and it proved to be a damp squib. The Echo point is just another tourist destination which is not worth its salt. One should spend time coolly enjoying munnar tea gardens instead of wasting time here.
