Neyyar Dam Trip - Part 1

As me and my wife planned to go for an outing we always know that Neyyar Dam is a nice place. We planned to visit Neyyar Dam on 25 Jul 2010. It was a Sunday. After attending the morning service at church we got ready for the trip. We started the trip at around 12 noon. We reached Neyyar Dam at around 1pm. We reached via Balaramapuram-> Kattakada-> Neyyar Dam. As we know that there were very few restaurants out there we bought lunch from Kattakada. Its a business town on the way to Neyyar Dam.

The climate was too good. Even though we reached there at 1pm we didn't feel the hot. We went to the reception for taking the ticket for the Lion Safari park.The ticket cost Rs 40 per head. For visiting the Safari park a mini bus is arranged for the tourists. It took us to the heart of the jungle. More about Lion Safari Park  & Crocodile park in the next post. We reached back from the Safari Park and went to see the Dam. The view of the Dam was so good.

There is small tower near by the Dam. From there we can get an overall view of the Dam and the park. The park in the Dam is good. Its a good place to be there with the family. Its a calm and cool atmosphere. A swimming pool is available in the park. As we take a close look at the Dam, we can see that it has started showing its age. Overall its a nice place for a one day outing.
