Avoid on weekends or long holidays. Restriction on the number of vehicles allowed on a day is a big scam and local palm greasing easily allows by passing the law. Drive through the forest is still enjoyable. We didnot even get down at the lake it was so crowded.

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.

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.

This is one of the best part of Kodaikanal !! No hawkers and no noise pollution. The drive to the lake is also awesome.
