Must do in kodaikanal. Rates are Rs 50 for 30 mins for 2 seater pedal boat. The lake is a star shaped one. So there is a lot of area you can roam as per your wish.

Good place to spend time, take pedal boat if you are going as couple. Too much of charges for bigger boat.

It is almost 5 kms long. Real good one. Should try the bicycle ride over there especially the twin cycles. The shops around are real cute and offer small knick knacks.

The perimeter of the lake is close to 6 KM ! The lake is about 80 feet deep! A lot of activities can be done around the lake. Cycling horse riding, shopping and of course boating! Cycling is best during early morning. They start by around 8AM. Horse riding is good too!

The lake is huge and best part is you can drive around this 5 odd kms circumference in your vehicle. Lake has a rowing club. It has several boating points. Very scenic at the heart of the hill town

The lake is maintained well. Tourists have wonderful experience around the lake, walking, cycling and riding on horse back. The roads have to be properly maintained in some areas around the lake. Plastics should be banned.
