This is a great picture square point in Kodaikanal. Click a photo here and all will recognize this place. Boating in a hill station with awesome weather is what drags tourist into Kodaikanal. A must visit place. Giving 4 star becoz there are scope of improvement. It can be made more attractive and well marketed.

The lake is very big! Take a cycle for rent ( which costs 20 rupees half an hour ) and have a beautiful ride around the world famous lake! The boating was fun! But the most we enjoyed was the cycle ride! We loved it so much....the road around the lake is not as you guess! It finally goes and... More
