Panchapalli Dam - A weekend getaway

Panchapalli dam is a little known place that is situated around 85 km from Bangalore, in Dharmapuri district of Tamil Nadu. The small dam is built on the river Chinnar and is surrounded by beautiful green hills. A serene dam with beautiful skies and the bright sun.

The road we took was Bengaluru -> Attibele Anekal road -> TVS factory -> Madhugiri -> Denkanikottai –> Panchapalli Dam.

There was a heavy traffic jam towards Hosur. Hence we took Attibele Anekal road. The road condition here was ok-ok till TVS factory. After this, it was good. The road leading to the dam was greenery and scenic. There were not many vehicles on the road. Immersed in the beauty of nature that surrounded us, we drove slowly breathing the fresh air. We stopped at the mini waterfall for the photo session.

When we reached the dam, we were expecting that this place would be crowded with people during the weekend. To our surprise, we did not see anyone else other than the gardener. We spent some time strolling and taking photos near the dam. On the other side of the dam there is a park. We walked down to the park and had a relaxed evening.

In old Tamil film there is a song,

Aandavan padachan enkitta koduthaan
anupavi raja nu anuppi vachaan
enna anupavi raja nu anuppi vachaan,
aandavan padachan enkitta koduthaan

God created this Universe, Gave it to me
he asked me to enjoy the gift of nature so he sent me here
he asked me to enjoy the gift of nature so he sent me here

This was true with us. After hectic week at work, got sometime to enjoy the gift of nature and relax.

  • No shops or hotels nearby. It is good to carry food and water.
