A very serene spot with heavy forestation around. Good for bird-watching. Walking around the lake is also good experience. Joy for photographers.

The trip is organised by the Forest Departments Eco Tourism. The complete trip takes around 1.5 Hours . Most of the times the visibility is poor on way due to mist.

This lake comes as the last spot on the Wild Forest Trip. It is a nice place with very good surroundings. Covered by hills on all side & lot of trees, it is a good place to visit with lasting memories.

I walked up to the forest checkpost official who said I did not have a permit issued from the Forest Dept office at Kodai. He said he can arrange one though for a cost. He did so and did give...

Rustic, very temperamental weather and right in the middle of the forest. A treat for eco travellers. Kids looking for parks may not like it. Lovely to see a all natural lake at such high altitude. Sighting water birds in the season is a treat.

Must see place to get a feel of the serene Kodaikanal. Surrounded by Greens and Quiet atmosphere. Add it to your visiting ride. Mostly should visit either in the early morning or after 4pm.

A permit needs to be taken from the forest department to visit this lake. We reached their office at 8 am and it was full. The office opens at 830am. Luckily for us the forest guard made a separate ladies line. The local taxi guys didn't maintain order. We got the permit by 9:30. Cost was Rs.150 for a private... More
