We really enjoyed the pedal boat and our daughter also liked it so much that she asked us to take her there again next day. The boat ticket ques though were really long and we had to wait almost 45 mins to get our boating ticket. Another factor is the boating time is 30 minutes and it starts the moment... More

It is one of those major attractions where you will see every possible families and couples, and the over priced ferry and boating services are ever present to indulge tourists. The only part which I actually liked was the mini toy train, though it was a disappointment that it din't go around the whole of the lake area.

There are lots of activities to do in and around Ooty, going for a boat ride in the ooty lake is one of them. They have quite a few options, boating in groups, motorized boat and foot peddled boat, I would recommend the self peddled boat, it is not very strenuous and also quite romantic.

You have a choice of motorized, rowing, pedaling boats. Make sure you wear life jackets. This is a very deep lake. Since it is a lake with vast area it is advisable to take the motor boat with the boat man then only you can cover the whole area of the lake in the allotted time.
