About Banasura Sagar Dam

Banasura Sagar Dam is a historical dam that has many ongoing projects. One of them is canal project which began with a goal of satisfying the demand for drinking water and irrigation in those regions where people suffer from water shortage. In the reservoir of this dam, here is a set of islands which were made by submerging of the nearby area by the reservoir. This dam is also a tourist attraction spot because of the stunning view people get to see from the islands with the Banasura Hills. The Banasura Resort, very close to the dam has been conferred with the title of Asia's largest earthen Resort by BBC. The resort has added to the popularity of the place and attracts a large number of tourists. This dam was constructed with boulders and massive stacks of stones and is situated at the distance of 21 km from the Kalpetta in Wayanad district, Kerala. This dam is the starting point for hiking. This is one of the major attraction places for tourists. Except trekking and enjoying the weather, there are some other fun activities such as pedal and speed boats also available.
