Views are stunning even with less water. Very crowded and we generally litter all around and this place is no different

You will have to either take the traveller for 10 INR per person to reach from the entrance. I would recommend walking as it is just 1 KM from the main entrance. Nice view but not much to do and no place to arrange picnic.

This is part of dam not sure why its mentioned as separate attraction? Any ways, they do have bus service to take you up and down the dam. Would recommend using that if traveling with young kids or elders otherwise its a good fitness test. Carry water for sure.

This dam is ideal for families. From the entry, one can walk up or take a jeep on hire to reach the dam top. There is leisure park for kids and families with few entertainment activities. For adventure, you have speed boat costing Rs. 750 for 5 members. This is a thrilling ride which is 10 km and 15 mins.... More

Nice trek. Although little tough. Takes half a day the very least. Keep plenty of fluid as it gets tiring. Beautiful view of landscape and lake
