It connects two huge rocks—Kurathi, 3,035 feet (925 metres) high, and Kuravan, 2,753 feet (839 metres) high. Together with the Cheruthoni dam (1976), on the Cheruthoni River, and the Kulamavu dam (1977), on the Muvattu Puzha River, the Idukki dam forms a large reservoir. The dam is used primarily for flood control and to generate hydroelectric power.
