9 AM -The Mattuppetty dam is one of the most important dams in the Idukki district and it is extensively used to generate hydroelectric power. The ripples of blue water of the lake created by the Mattuppetty dam will soothe your eyes. The lake is surrounded by thickly forested Western Ghats hills. Shacks selling souvenirs and food items to tourists have mushroomed by the lake shore. Activities like boat rides can be enjoyed on the lake.

The booking cost is RS 500/- per boat. And the maximum allowed persons per boat is 5. If you are single or two persons, you can club with others and book a boat. This boating facility is provided by two groups there-Kerala govt and Tamilnadu govt. No compromise with safety. !! You will be asked to fill up a form with your personal details and will be asked to wear a Life-jacket. The ride is extremely thrilling. The riders are trained ones and exactly know what the customers are looking for. The turns, twirls, twists of the ride will give you worth of your money. And of course the scenic beauty of the surrounding of the lake during the ride will mesmerize you.
DAY 1: We began our trip at around 1.30 in the afternoon. We got the jeep and booked it for both the days. The place was so beautiful that you can click pictures almost everywhere. The roads were narrow and the clouds were floating around. There was no sign of the sun first day. We saw hydel dam in between our trip. Then we reached Mattupetty dam, boating option is available there. There is a place called as view point where the full view of tea plantation is available. The greenery and the plantations are perfect at that place. Best suited for photography.
