Nice views of the reservoir and surrounding countryside from the top of the dam. Visitors can drive up to the top of the dam and then walk out along the top. Nice place for a quiet visit.

We went here to have lunch. We took a boat out to the restaurant, about 10 minutes, and enjoyed the scenery along the way. We sat on the lake and had a very nice meal. A very entertaining, scenic way to spend some time.

Hi sawasdeejanie, we did not contact anyone. We visit there in low season, so it's very quiet. I think if you Google for ngat dam Guesthouse, you will find several options! Chokdee!! Grtz marlous
