  • 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.
