A bouquet of nearly a dozen lakes merged together to form this reservoir in Karapuzha river, a small tributary of Kabani river. As, activities are not available there, it is worth visiting in the evening especially. Enjoy the breeze as you walk along the water catchment area, hand in hand with your beloved ones.
