Hilly landscape surrounding  dam
 This spot is about just 1 km from Ghati Subramanya temple , while descending back on the narrow Ghati curves there is a muddy cross road leading to this spot.  Road though muddy leads all the way right to the dam area.

Dam traverse path

Spot attracts with its scenic beauty occasional visitors during evening. It is advised to traverse along the Dam with utmost caution as there are no hand support and the path is open on either ends - any slippage may be fatal . Access to reach either bottom or top of dam is easy. Best time to visit this spot may be during monsoon. There are no shops  nearby - we recommend visitors to carry sufficient food supplies.
