The dam is situated close to the main Ooty-Gudalur road and includes a power station. One of the oldest power plants in south India, the Pykara station still functions, generating about 60 megawatts. The first unit of 6.65 MW was commissioned in October 1932. Sir C.P. Ramaswamy Aiyar worked with the British regime in 1920s and 1930s in the setting up of the Pykara project. A team of engineers led by H.G.Howard, a chief engineer in the then Electricity department, was responsibl for carrying out the project.

There is a forest rest house at Pykara. A boat house on the Pykara reservoir is an added attraction for tourists. Pykara boasts of well protected fenced sholas, Toda settlements, large grassy meadows and good wildlife habitat. The Pykara Dam, Falls and reservoir attract many tourists.
