Anayirankal Dam Reservoir
The journey through the windy road was spellbinding with lovely views of the tea plantations and the mountains at both sides. At one point, we could even see the Anayirangal dam at a great distance surrounded by lush green hills. The tea plantations at many places had symmetrically lined silver oak trees in between and the leaves of the oak trees were signing in the sunlight truly justifying it's name.
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.
Blimey!! Nothing can beat this glorious spot of Idukki, nestling in the heart of Kerela. Pristine lakes dancing down through narrow passages among mighty hills will melt your mind, shedding sadness just as rock off a cliff.
