Lying in the lap of the Banasura hills in the Wayanad district is the picturesque Banasura Sagar dam. Banasura Dam is the largest earthen dam in the country and the second-largest in Asia. The view of the sprawling reservoir from the top of the dam is breathtaking. Adventures like speed boating are readily available, and a trek up to the Banasura Peak is filled with streams, diverse flora, fauna, lush tropical green and majestic waterfalls. An earthen dam, also known as an embankment dam is created by placing mounds of clay, sand, rock or soil. The view of Banasura Lake from the top of the hill is mesmerising.

Built along the river of Karamanathodu, a tributary of the Kabini river, this tourist hotspot is well maintained as a part of the Indian Banasura Sagar Project. It provides irrigation, drinking water and electricity to surrounding places. The sprawling area of clear water is a photographer's dream, dotted with tiny islands and the view is incredible during monsoons. The hills are named after 'Banasura', son of the famous ruler, King Mahabali. An ideal picnic spot, Banasura Dam is one the most beautiful places not just in Kerela, but the entire country.

With exotic panoramic views, Banasura offers wanderlusts enchanting trekking options. A trek to Meenmutty Falls would take all your worries away. This three tiered, three hundred feet high waterfall is a two-kilometre trek, but one needs to be extremely cautious during monsoons because the climb is treacherous and has left casualties before. The trek to the Banasura hill peak is another mesmerising journey, with the view of the surrounding areas a visual treat to the eyes.
