Mettur Dam Salem Reviews
Worth visiting at least once Apr 28, 2013
This is NOT exactly a tourist attraction but the dam is really worth watching for its structure and hydroelectric power project. We visit this place frequently en route Kerala, as the highways through Tamil Nadu from Bangalore are good.
The dam is nearly 1 km long with 17-19 gates. Most of the time , it is dry. Only once in 2007 August was it brim full when we visited. There is a small park nearby, and of course Salem has few good hotels for food and other things.
The only thing is - Tamil Nadu is hot and dry, so be prepared for that.
Another worth watching structure in TN is the Bhavani Sagar dam, which I have already reviewed on travel buddy.
