there is nothing there-- absolutely nothing. No guide/restaurant/access/park. It's all ruined. But if you have time while coming/going to Kannur you can take diversion. It will cost you 1 hour from main road and if you love seeing old dam - go else skip.

Last year, the dam overflowed and destroyed most of the scenic park. So today, we have just a sad view of the destroyed park. Even the officials are not bothered.
