“Totally avoidable”
Reviewed March 25, 2014

We went on a sunday - so it was crowded and dirty - totally avoidable- did not see why people go there. The lake was also very very small.

“Optional visit”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Nothing great about it -You can spend half day and take a boat ride if you are a family with kids. nothing much to entertain grown ups, and can be quite hot and crowded during summer

“Good for kids”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

The lake is small and has a path that goes all around it. Good place to go running or something but nothing that deems a visit. There is boating in the lake and thus kids can have fun. Otherwise nothing else to talk about.

“A nice place to spend with family”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Liked visiting the place. Pookot Lake has many recreational activities to keep you involved.

First comes the boating. There are paddle boats and row boats. We preferred the row boat and had a nice boat ride.

There is a children pay zone with lot of activity apparatus. My kid was quite excited playing with these. There is also a facility for elephant ride (though the elephant was not available during the time of our visit). There is a Fish Pedicure facility that we loved. There is also an aquarium with different fishes. One major attraction is Piranha (the flesh eating fishes). Not to miss this one!

On the way out, there is a small shop where you may buy wayanad special items (like spices, handicrafts and wooden utencils)
