About Banasura Sagar Dam in Wayanad

Part of the Banasura Sagar Project, Banasura Dam in Wayanad is one of the most active tourist spots in Wayanad and for good reason. In Wayanad, Banasura Dam is a unique structure as it is a completely earthen dam. The lake formed by Banasura Sagar Dam Wayanad is immensely beautiful. The view from atop Banasura Sagar Dam in Wayanad is simply superb and stretches on for miles. Famous as Kerala is for its diverse wildlife and flora, it should hardly be surprising that Banasura Dam in Wayanad is surrounded by great natural beauty. Evidently, the Wayanad Banasura Dam is the best tourist location. Close to several wildlife sanctuaries such as Kozhikode Wildlife Sanctuary, Bramhagiri Wildlife Sanctuary, Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary, and Muthanga Wildlife Sanctuary, Banasura Sagar Dam Wayanad is a great location.

Set in the midst of dense forests, Banasura Sagar Dam in Wayanad is a small hike away from Ekkadal Caves in Ambukuthi Hills. The hills are also clearly visible when one climbs on to the top of Banasura Dam in Wayanad. The artificial lake formed within Wayanad’s Banasura Dam offers speed-boating, kayaking, and coracle rides which are a must try. Banasura Sagar Dam Wayanad offers an exciting jungle safari setting and is quite close to Kuruvadweep, which is a great island destination for tourists set amidst mangrove trees. Banasura Sagar Dam in Wayanad is an exquisite picnic spot as well.

Banasura Dam in Wayanad, being an earthen dam is a feat of engineering to behold. In Wayanad, Banasura Dam generates hydroelectricity, eco-tourism, and reigns over the Karamanathodu tributary of River Kabini. The best thing is, Banasura Sagar Dam, Wayanad, was constructed in a remarkable way. Not only does Banasura Sagar Dam in Wayanad control the flow of Karamanathodu, but does so in a way that it does not disturb the local ecosystems. Set in an exotic location in Kerala, Banasura Dam in Wayanad together with a canal also contributes to localized irrigation channels and freshwater supply.

One of the most engaging facts about Wayanad Banasura Dam is that it is India’s largest earthen dam and the reservoir created by Banasura Sagar Dam Wayanad actually has islands inside it! There is even a small nature park near the boating area of Banasura Sagar Damin Wayanad. A nice trek to the dark forests of Banasura Hill near Banasura Dam in Wayanad also makes for an engaging activity. The Wayanad Banasura Dam is also close to places of worship such as Shri Ayyappa Mandir, Shri Nath Mandir, and Nirur Shiva Mandir.

    • Trip to Kerala

      It was a good trip with couple of disappointing. On day one we had to cover athirapally , Vazhachal and Charpa waterfalls before we check in at munnar hotel. but once we started from the airport, driver stopped us in midway and informed me that the mentioned waterfalls was not part of the itinerary he received and asked me to pay additional 2000rs to cover the places . then i had to call the traveler person to sort things out and this wasted me more than 1 1/2 hours. distance between Cochin airport and Athirapally waterfalls is approximately 40 kms. it took us nearly 2 hours to reach the place. we ended up not visiting Vazhachal and Charpa waterfalls because of the time wasted in the morning and then the driver miss guided us. In alleppey I had candle light dinner and Honeymoon Cake was in my itinerary, dinner was arraigned inside the boat with a candle on the table, by no means it was a candle light dinner type and I had to buy Crabs and prawns for dinner. Normal cake was served and it was not good .

      I feel that Liva is in good managing hotel management,he is lacking about sight seen which we exactly need that a adventure in place and location, which is completely miss out,In kerla we have to find out the adventure place which is far away in the itinerary although we have already inform what we needed. some forest adventure,tracking,jeep safari as well as time of any particular places of entry not known.liva must have a good knowledge of his surrounding and geography as well as places for which tourist are coming. every Travel agent must understand the need and interest of every tourist and then only he suggest the destination and sight seen of that area with thoroughly knowledge. i advise that Liva must have increase in local knowledge so that other tourist can get better experience. Hotel are extra ordinary and marvelous,The tree house in munnar is so beautiful and always is memorable.The cab cab driver is so gentlemen and cooperative with hindi knowledge.
