Mattupetty Dam Reviews
Very good climet, we enjoyed our trip in Munnnar . My family went boating. Dam full water was there, totally we enjoyed our trip more »
Enjoyable boat ride. A short walk down can be considered steep. If you have asthma issues walking up back can be quite a challenge. Saw an elephant who got lost from the herd. Hence the photo. 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.
