“Beautiful Kodai Lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

The lake is big and beautiful. Lots of activities in and around the lake. Especially loved the double cycle ride around the perimeter of the lake. Boating options are available in the lake, like pedal boating, shikara ride etc. and at reasonable rates too. Horse riding is also available. The area is vibrant with lots of shops selling chocolates and knick knacks. Its the jewel in the crown of Kodaikanal.

“Star shaped lake has a history as well..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

The lake is star-shaped, centrally located in the town of Kodaikanal and is surrounded by lush green hills of the northwestern Palani Hills range.It was created by British in 1863 and landmark of Kodai.It is an important tourists attraction.Lake is surrounded by walk - pathway and lots of trees.Early morning or late evening walk will be very pleasant and the fresh chill air is very energizing to our mind&soul.Boating is really a pleasure and relaxing one.

One should really explore this hill station during Sept to Feb in during the rainy & winter season.

Bicycle ride around the lake and in the town would be a good experience and exercise.

“Crowded, still enjoyed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

The lake is overcrowded at times. But we enjoyed it by hiring a boat and moving to the less crowded part.
