It is an wonderful place in kodai, 30 km far away from the main spot. Nature is playing here, if you have luck you can have a sight of strange animals along with bison.

It was a wonderful location where we can see 5 beautiful places, I can't understand why this fabulous location was restricted with a permission to visit. We have to get permission from the forest department to enter this area in our vehicle , One good thing is that we can go in their vehicle for a nominal fee of Rs.100/-... More

Requirement of forest permit is mandatory to go to this area. but amidst the woods and greenery, u will find this silent lake of its unique kind. A full day will be required to visit in and around attractions of berjam lake. better to plan before visit kodaikanal to obtain a permit to visit forest area

On a full day tour, Berijam lake comes midway and offers a good picnic spot. Commands a good view and although not very big, again, impressed with the cleanliness of the waters and the environment.
