I've studied in Kodai for six years and a visit back to this place is always nostalgic. I went boating with my wife for an hour and then spent three more sitting at a restaurant nearby gazing at it. Looks spectacular in the evening and one time I'd recommend taking your camera along

Boating at the kodaikanal lake is An experience which is really hard to describe in words. Row and pedal boats are available here. Try hiring a bicycle to see the area around the lake.

Boating, I like most. The colour of lake water, I dislike. You can enjoy horse riding and cycling. No need to say about the street vendors, they have something to sell.
