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.

I had great time at this dam with speed boating!! All safety measures well maintained by the Kerala tourism and Rs.600 for a speed boat is really cheap for 15-20 mts ride on the dam. Courteous staff and boat operators will regulated definitely a place to visit in Munnar!!!

The place is really good and scenic. The speed boat ride though short is amazing and not to be missed. For Rs 600 you can hire boat for 5 people. While in river, the beauty of mountains and trees/greenery around will mesmerize you completely. Truly, the best spot of Munnar.

The landscape is indescribable... We just lost in its peaceful calm and beautiful environment. One can sit for hours .... I don't know how should I describe it... Totally spellbound 😍

The dam is beautiful. It is certainly one of the highlights of Munnar and no visit to this hill station will be complete without visiting Mattupetty Dam. Just wish local businesses like shooting balloons and other shanty shops all around the dam do not spoil the serenity of the area. Boat ride is fun and adventurous but expensive.

This is basically a power house dam built and maintained by Kerala State Electricity board. The water reservoir looks good with the beautiful background. The dam serves as the main road for the vehicles bound to Top Point. There are speed boats which can be availed @Rs.600 a person.

We were taken here as part of a tour but it was a weekend and unfortunately it felt like half of India had also decided to visit, the traffic was horrific but the lake created by the dam and the scenery were beautiful. I'm glad I went but if you can avoid weekends I would recommend it!

nothing special about this spot. It's just a road with an outdated barrage (gates) under the bridge. Can be and should be avoided.
