“"Heart of kodaikanal"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2014 NEW

Place is actually really beautiful and well maintained. The lake is clean and tidy. The only issue was the management and the condition of the boat they rent out. We rented out two of them and one of them had literally holes on the sides. Overall a must visit in kodaikanal.

“Serene”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2014 NEW

Best suited for row boating. It's really chilling & thrilling when it drizzles. You must have on the boat few spicy snakes, fruits and some ice creams to enjoy fully while rowing with your partner.

“Boating experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2014 NEW

There was a huge area of the lake for boating with sailed & paddled boats. In a chilled climate we couldn't stop ourselves to visit the lake and for boating as well. Nice chilled experience.

“Fun filled cycling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2014 NEW

If you are going for the lake instead of going to boating go for cycling. It is the best of three(horse riding, cycling, boating). It will be fun. But before getting on the cycle check whether the air in tires and brakes are working fine. Lol.
