Great for sunset
Mar 2021 • Family
Calm ... serene ... uncrowded. Best for a quiet sunset stop. Nothing available there so carry a flask, snacks if you would like to enjoy a sundowner.

Serene reservoir with the special unique arc shaped water spillover at the end of the wall along the dam
Feb 2021
It's a reservior with awesome views. From the parking area, a leisurely walk for 500 meters along the dam wall takes you to th eend where the actual arc shaped spillover of ater happens before flowing through the canals, But when we visited in mid Feb, water level was low, hence we couldn't see the spillover. Suggest, it should be visited up to December when water levels are high. It can be clubbed with visit to other Kushal nagar attractions like Dubare Camp, Nisargadham & Bylakuppe Monastry.

Try avoiding during Covid time.
Oct 2020 • Family
The place is superb, but problem is it is currently blocked, visitors cannot climb up to get the view of the reservoir, so better to avoid now and come back post Covid when it is open for public visit.
I have attached the only view that we get of Chiklihole.

A Hidden Wonder

If you're in, spare some time and head to the Chiklihole Reservoir. It is a quaint place to see sunsets in Coorg and one of the best reservoirs I have been to.

Something different
Jan 2020 • Family
Typically many people doesn't go here thinking this to be just another reservoir, what they don't know is about a unique feature this dam has which looks great when the water is full. Just check the pics I attached with this, you will know what I mean. And you don't need to plan this seperately cse if you are visiting Coorg, you will surely go-to Dubbare elephant camp, this resiorvor is enroute...so just visit this place for 10mins, worth it

Restorative Reservoir
Dec 2019 • Family
The locals recommend it highly. "The view is the best in Coorg," they said. Calling it Sunset Point, their tales of the reservoir overflowing and forming a circle at the spillover resounded around us until we decided to pay a visit. If the views are breathtaking, the drive to the dam is nothing short of fantastic. Driving through a dense forest as the light dimmed around us added a surreal touch to the journey. All around us trees and shrubs crept on the road like a Stephen King tale.
The views at the reservoir were so stunning that we forgot all about the drive. The lake was like glass, reflecting everything above it. Small islands and the forested banks had all the ingredients of Francis Ford Coppola's haunting Apocalypse Now. The silence was so palpable that every sound we made echoed around us. It was difficult to stare at the water falling into the spillway without being mesmerized. A dog, who seemed to be the local guardian of the place, greeted as only dogs can: lying down and demanding scratches. But light suddenly started to fade and we had to tear ourselves away from the Wordsworthian landscape back to the drive through the deep and dark woods. It's a must see for anyone visiting Coorg. Miss it at your peril!

Nice place to watch sunset !
Dec 2019 • Couples
You should visit this place in the evening around 5:30 types to watch the sun go down. One could spend 30-45 minutes having a stroll around the dam. There is no entry fee to this place and entrance is through the side of the main entrance gate.

Hidden Gem

This dam is 10 min drive from dubare elephant camp though jungle. Road upto Dam is quite good. There is a walkway on the dam pier. One can easily spend half an hour in the lap of the nature. Not much of tourists are coming this side, so it is less crowded.
Beautiful view and nice little walk will surely enhanced the mood.
