Though built for generation of electricity and for irrigational purposes the dams in Kerala are a tourist destination in themselves thanks to the greenery surrounding them. Forests and grass lands surrounding these sites make them an enchanting stopover. Some of the dams like the Bhoothathan Kettu Dam in Kothamangalam are surrounded by forests which offer the tourist a spectacle of a wide variety of flora and fauna and is a botanist delight. Others are teeming with exotic wildlife, offers excellent trekking and rock climbing opportunities. Elephants are regular visitors at the mattupetty dam in Iddikki.The Banasura Sagar dam in Kalpetta is the largest earthen dam in India and the second largest in Asia and an ideal starting point for hikes into the surrounding scenic mountains. Of particular significance is the set of islands that were formed when the reservoir submerged the surrounding areas. The islands with the Banasura hills in the background provide a spectacular view.
The Idukki dam on the Periyar river is the world's second and Asia's first arch dam constructed across the Kuravan and Kurathi hills. At an elevation of 167.68 meters it is one of the highest arch dams in Asia, at 555 feet in height. An artificial lake of 60 Sq.Km width has been created by the Construction of this arch dam and two other dams at Cheruthony and Kulamavu.Peechi dam in Thrissur is another of the dams in Kerala which is a good picnic spot.
