Malampuzha Dam

Some pictures from the nice trip we made to Malampuzha Dam about 60 kms from Kovai. The timing was perfect with river malampuzha brimming from the never-fail West coast monsoon showers and temperature just right to take a stroll over the dam or see the aerial view from the rope car ride or explore the gardens! With mountains and water and greenery, what more could we ask for!


The beautiful garden view from atop the dam


Another view of the garden but this picture taken from the rope-car ride


The dam!


River Malampuzha with a lakshman joola type bridge across.


A nice 20 mins ride on the rope car is a complete paisa vasool[Rs. 20 (or was it Rs. 30?)]


Kaalinga nardhana Krishnaa!


Many more fountains through out the park


Mountain view from the dam

Great to see Mazhampuzha still as green as ever and not go the ooty way!!

Mazhampuzha-nu sonnaale one thing comes to mind...On a school trip, mazhampuzha which was the last destination on a multi-stop Kerala tour got cancelled due to time constraints. Monday morn, princy during her lecture, announced in the assembly that the Twelthies have just returned from a refreshing tour seeing places like X, Y, Mazhampuzha to which the girls promptly shouted "No Mazhampuzha!!" in unison!! They got a severe tongue-lashing and asked to stay in detention for shouting like that and the princy commended the boys for showing mature restraint, we nearly fell over each other in laughter hearing the praise showered on us!

Fond memories indeed.

The pics are good.. The garden looks pretty nice. Interesting to know that even such a small place has got the rope car facility. Looks like I must visit during my next tour to CBE...

Nice pictures, haven't been to the Coimbatore area, but seeing these snaps, it looks like a visit to the Malampuzha dam would be worth.
