Cheruthoni Dam is another famous dam of Kerala which is situated in the Idukki district. The dam is constructed across the Cheruthoni river. This river is an important tributary of the Periyar river. This dam generates hydro-electric power which is supplied to the nearby places.
The villages that are powered by this dam are Karimban, Manjappara Vazhathope, Thadiyanpadu and Maniyarankudi. It is the third dam of the Idukki Reservoir Project. This is a nice place for photography.
