Everything is fine but nobody is using the life jacket though it is available. Even the authorities do not make it compulsory. If proper awareness is created about the importance of wearing life jackets the whole experience will be very save for all the people visiting the lake.

Its just a lake inside the city. Not good if crowded. Walking around the lake in the evenings is very pleasant. Boating, cycles on hire and horse riding. Kids would enjoy.

Excellent ambience, variety of things to do like boating, cycling, horse riding or just walking munching bhajias, steamed groundnut, ripe mangoes washing down with ginger tea. Can visit the Bryant park if interested

Relatively Pristine. Both boating in the lake and cycling around it a memorable experience. The Kodai boat club seems to have better facilities. Just outside it, are numerous places to hire bicycles. I was afraid I am not fit to cover the 6km+ circling road but it was a pleasure and quite easy.

Better to go around the lake in the morning or in the forenoon for cycling or walk. In the afternoon crowd may grow.

This is by far the best place to spend time. located at the center, its very relaxing. There are many options while choosing the boat type. If you are a couple and want to enjoy some private time, the shikara ride is a ride you will enjoy and remember for lifetime. This is truly the crown of kodaikanal. The more... More
