  • Mattupetty Dam is a reservoir we heard built by the British to irrigate the tea plantation. Beautiful mountains surround this Dam, making it very picturesque. The water is clean and clear greenish blue. Lots of people visit this place. There are activities here like peddle boats, jet boats and jet skies. We tried the jet skies as there was lots of crowd for jet boat. The Jet Ski was 300rs. Per person. Our kids enjoyed the thrilling ride of the jet skies. The peddle boat was 100rs. Per person. There are shops at the Dam side. Mattupetty Dam is a must visit place in Munnar. 👌🏼👍🏻
  • A very beautiful place. It's awesome. You can enjoy pedal boating. It's one of the best tourist destination in Kerala. A good choice to take photos. A best option for spending time with your friends and family. You will get a good view.. from the top of the dam. The water fall from the dam is so beautiful that you won't be able to come back.
