First one is Idukki dam. From Kochi city a distance of 111 KM would take you to Idukki Dam. Asia’s first arch dam that beautifully connects Kuravan and Kurathi hills. This dam authority has a vehicle that takes you for a close view of the dam. Photography is strictly prohibited. The dam is said to be built with ice in the building materials to make it stronger compared to other dams built in those days. The remains of the ice factory can also be seen at the sight. I was stunned at the way the dam was built and maintained. For a person who gets fascinated by science, human efforts and admires creation would definitely love this place.
