Mattupetty dam was reached after a long drive. But worth it. Nice views. Due to summers, water level was down so it was not too pleasant a site. But overall a good place to visit more »
Very nice place. Scenic ambience. So pretty. Especially when it's cloudy it is damn beautiful. The water will be seen in different shades of green & blue. Absolutely stunning. Also boating service is available. Power generation unit is also available. Can't believe how this structure withstood the floods.
The dam connects us to the other side of the lake where we have boating. Dam's boating has speed boating which allows 5 people and a bigger one for 15. Speed boating stunts are done by the Helmsman. This area has a parking, garden and some shopping area. Echo Point is nearby which has scooter boating which is only for one person and stunts are done on this is really thrilling and adventurous.
