  • Lovely place, Sholayar Dam is one of the attractive lesser known scenic tourist spots in Tamil Nadu. Near by Valparai. It is located above 3,500 feet from the sea level on the Annamalai mountain range. It is a small town located on the western ghats, 125 km away from Coimbatore. In Sholayar Dam, there are several tea and coffee estates, dams, water falls and Accommodations. Sholayar Dam totally gives us a wonderful natural scenery.
  • 5 star is for the people who created this.. On the way you can just enter & spend few min on top of it then leave.... Nothing else
