lovely place for couples

It could be better if there is a grocery and toilet. tree benches are seated well. Parking won't be a problem at all

Berijam Lake is a classic case of mismanagement of a really nice place. It is located some 25 kms from Kodaikanal, which means getting there and back is an hour each way (though there are lovely places that can be covered in the return). The forest dept lets in a limited no of vehicles - the road to the lake... More

Berijm is a ecohotspot in the Western Ghats and only if one is truly interested in natural surroundings not looking for entertainment, one will appreciate this place. Great for birding and nature photography, in absolute silence.

This lake is not open for all public but situated in the reserved forest area and you don't get the boat ride in this lake. But it's a beautiful lake.

Berijam Forest Tour (sometimes simply called the Forest Tour) is a full day tour from Kodaikanal. This is a MUST visit place. The entire route is through forest region and extremely scenic. The road is full of fog/clouds and it is a great sight. The lake area is beautiful and untouched. Downright it will be the best day of your... More

We were only allowed to enter this park on a minibus tour. Stopped at several viewpoints, but our time actually at the lake was very short. As keen birdwatchers, this was very frustrating. However, we did see some very rare Nilgiri Langurs( monkeys) in the trees on the way to the lake- very exciting. Limited numbers of people and private... More

Berijam lake is a must watch in Kodaikanal. Its the most scenic and romantic place I found in Kodaikanal. You have to go early to get permission from forest dept to enter in forest area. Lake is 12 km from the checkpost. Lake will give a feel of mini Switzerland.

As many reviewers had pointed out , a prior permission is required to enter the forest. We arranged a visit to the lake with our hotel so they arranged a car along with the permit. They would charge you a hefty amount for the trip but for those who do not want to run around arranging a permission, this would... More
