One of the attraction of Yercaud though an average place surrounding the small market place in the middle of the town.

There's a deer park. Boating is kind of okish.. The life jackets are not taken seriously.. Prices are high.. For the less secure ride..

It is one of the attraction in yercaud. Boat ride here is good. The place is well managed. The boats are not very good. Especially the ones that are hand rown. The lake also has lot of weeds. Pedal boats are good. And pricing is reasonable. Overall nice place.

It was a nice lake in Yercaud and we enjoyed just chilling by it. There are boating options for children and it is well maintained.

Small lake with average infrastructure. Yes indeed i enjoyed the boat ride, not so crowded like Oooty. You can enjoy pedal boats than row boats

The lake is very near to the Yeracaud town. This is the only lake in Yeracaud area.You can go for a boat ride you have to pay Rs. 200 and for getting inside the lake you need to pay Rs.5. Car parking is a mess you need to pay as Rs.20.
