The drive to the dam passes through some nice tea gardens, but the dam itself is hardly a sight. Nonetheless, it is teeming with local tourists. The roads are packed and roadside tourist stands have sprung up everywhere. Not worth the trip.

The most interesting thing about the sight is to watch the Indian people out for a day of relaxation. Forgn tourists must not be common as we got two requests to have our picture taken.

Nothing great about this place. View of the water from the dam is good. Climate is good and one can enjoy cool breeze. Boating is also available.

it is just a small area where you are allowed to sit back and dip your feet in the water and take pictures but it is worth going to. buy yourself some raw mango slices or pine apples , dip your feet in the water and just chillllll. spend half an hour and come back relaxed.

The dam is surrounded by beautiful mountains. In morning its looks extra ordinary foggy atmosphere. No other place compare with this place. Boating and speed boating rides available. I tries speed boat

The Mattupetty Dam is a must visit place in Munnar. Its a great place with fantastic views. You can enjoy the boat rides which opens at around 9.30 am. Overall its worth spending time here and taking some great photos.
