Yoga Dam...

Neyyar Dam is home to the beautiful and peaceful Sivananda Yoga Ashram. Tourists can hire a speedboat for 250 INR. The view is very scenic and good to go place.

Though far from city (bus takes much time through bad roads) this natural beauty is a must see; the dam offers picturesque view and is calm that you feel it like a poster. Do not enter water as there are alligators/crocodiles in it. There is a nearby crocodile park and the lion safari is a must where you can see... More

Neyyar Dam is good but water level is too low here, Market near dam is good it shows you local culture and take a advantage to test local food like banana pakora, masala tea and lots more.

Went for a half-day trip and it was worth visiting. Though there is nothing about dam itself, but the lake is huge and such a clear blue-ish water!!!
