Banasura Sagar Dam

Banasura Sagar Dam, located in Kalpetta, is among the most visited destinations in Northern Kerala. Popular as the largest earthen dam in India and the second largest in Asia, it constraints the waters of the Karamanathodu, an offspring of the Kabini River. The dam was built with the aim of aiding the Kakkayam Hydroelectric Power Project and help with the irrigation and drinking water requirements of the people during summer. The view from here is magical making it among the best picnic locations in Wayanad.

People love the trekking options available here. The culmination of the trek offers one a spectacular view of the valley below, with the mist-covered hills of Wayanad being the primary attraction. Surrounded by beautiful greenery, there are numerous boating options as well. A speedboat ride at the dam is not to be missed if one is in the vicinity, as some prime spots can only be seen from boats. The rock formations in the area make for an interesting spectacle as well.
