Worth the drive, the place is heavenly beautiful. Be prepared for a long drive though. As you drive through you pass through curvy road with breathtaking views. I have never seen so many beautiful mountains in one place.

We did not have a guide the day that we were there, but we were able to walk around and marvel at the size and beauty of this human construction. The drive there through the mountains was worth the trip all by itself.

Loved doing this trip with friends. It's not always so much about the destination, but about the journey there. It was beautiful to go into the mountains and drive from peak to peak through winding roads surrounded by nature and rural life. The dam itself...More

Some nice views if it had not been so hazy. Cafe facilities very basic and no real attractions as indicated not even stalls of tourist trinkets. Glad we had not made a special trip
