3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

The road from the check point to the starting point of the safari is good. Animal sighting is minimal. However, the forest is dense and thick. A good experience.

“Avalanche Lake Bus Trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We took a bus out to Avalanche lake. The lake and scenery were beautiful, but the bus ride was very rough. I would still recommend it.

“Avalanche Jungle Safari & Lake”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Avalanche Jungle Safari is located 1 hour away from Ooty. Once you reach here by your own cab, you have to buy tickets for Jungle Safari Bus, which will also going to have Avalanche Lake in it.

This is around 2 hour Safari, however chances of seeing any animal is very very less - Not even a single butterfly. However you should go for this safari, as it goes through nice views / sharp jungle roads of Avalanche Jungle.

Be aware of Monkeys. Lot of them in the car parking, so do not eat food in open.
Last view point of this Safari is “Avalanche Lake”, which is Wow experience. The lake looks like, lake shown in last in the famous Indian Movie "Three Idiots".
