Highly commercialized. Local shops if you are looking for local stuffs to buy. Too crowded sometimes. I visited with family in May 2017, water was less in the dam.

I happened to visit this place with some friends and it's unlike any dam site much smaller in size though. One can avoid this place during the trip to Munnar.

Its a water reservoir in the hills. A small dam is there. Not much to do here. Small eating joints are there but they are all closed due to strike in the hills.

At this place, you will find paddle boating, speed boating, witness tea gardens, forests, ducks and flowing water. Also this is a very quiet place. You can take a paddle boat at Rs 250 for two people for 1/2 hour.

Pretty scenic view but nothing else. I think you are better off picking scenic spots while driving around to take photos. Go there if it's on the way to something else

Boating charges are 500/- for 15 minutes. I would suggest to go for boating at the Echo Point than at the first boating point, since that place looks more serene..
