The Chandrampalli dam is an earthen dam and hence is built of sand, loam, clay and other materials. The Dam has 6 spillway gates, located at the southern end of the dam. The dam can hold a water level up to 496.21 meters. It has a storage capacity of 34.19 mcm. It also has a pathway, broad enough for walking or driving across the dam. The dam is 962 meters long and 28.65 meters high. The flow of the river Bhima at the dam rises during monsoons and dries up during the summer. The area around the dam is not densely civilized because of which tourists can enjoy the natural beauty of the place. This has also contributed to the emergence of this place as a beautiful tourist place.
