beautiful nice lake right in the centre of town with boating facility and a nice Anna park on on side with a deer park island in the lake. The place was quite neat also.

Nice Cosy place,but they can keep it more clean.Even for parking on the road they are charging other than the money you pay to enter into yercaud.

Like most hill stations in India, the lake area of Yercaud is the most happening place. There is a pretty garden around, boating & some food stalls.

This is like lakes at most hill stations so for people who have been to many hill stations, this may not be very exceptional. However, this probably is the only good alternative for timepass in Yercaud.

Don't miss the view of the Deers from the lake, the lake is adjacent to the deer park. The crowd is managed efficiently.

Cleanliness is average. Boat rides are just about okay. Well one has to have a boatride on lakes, don't we?

I and my wife were there in yercaud on a weekend.The big lake is one of the main attractions of yercaud.We took a peddle boat for half an hour and the rates were highly reasonable as it is controlled by the government. We took a canopy boat which I strongly advice if you are taking the ride in the morning... More

This is a lake where one can go for a row boat / paddle boat or motorized boat (pretty weird that motorized boats are patronized at all in the wake of environment conservation). I feel it is one of the activities one can do at Yercaud. Run by the government, this lake is maintained pretty well. They provide life jackets.... More

We went to this lake during early morning around 9AM. It was fantastic weather. We enjoyed the Boat ride in the lake. It was awesome experience. Charges for the Boat are also very minimal. It was around 120 Rupees for Pedal Boat of 2 persons for 30min duration.
