We went past the dam and into the reservoir above it. More cottages here where we stayed in one to pass time and watch people enjoy swimming. The surrounding vegetation makes the place look peaceful. The banks of the reservoir is a bit muddy and trash litter the place. I also noticed that the eater is greenish, too greenish as a matter of fact it seems infested with algae. I didn't attempt to swim as others did because from the cottage we were at I could already notice the fishy smell of the water. I seriously think the water in the reservoir is not clean for swimming. But I saw kids taking a dip. Shocking !!!
