Kakkayam Dam Reviews & Ratings
It is the one of the best destination for travelers who loves natural rides. Driving through the narrow road by enjoying beautiful hills is the best experience for me. Lots of places for photography. Often we can see animals like monkey and elephant.
Great historical place. If your are looking forward to boat and have some fun this is the location for you. You can also enjoy 1-2 km of wildlife and Forrest areas before heading to main part which is the dam itself...and yea ! Make sure U carry some bucks with ya. Cuz boating and entering there doesn't come with online or credit/debit payment.
One of the best places to visit with family and friends, and comfortable for couples also. Worth a visit to this place. Speed boat is available and it is an amazing one. Bestowed with natural and greeny environment. It is famous for DAM but I actually enjoyed the journey to the site and the long walk ways inside the DAM site. Around 60 km from Calicut city, this dam is located in a picturesque place. Really loved it. Extra hygienic and well maintained.
Great place. Has some amazing views. But, lots of tickets. On entry (road), you have to take ticket and then you have to take another ticket after you reach the dam entry. Boating was the best experience going there for me.
