“Relax in Pykara Lake”
Review of Pykara Lake

Pykara Lake

Attraction details
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Boating in the natural lake of Pykara is really very much relaxing and romantic too. It is located on the Ooty Mysore main high way. One can enjoy the scenic beauty midst of forest while boating in the lake. Also experience the cool and fresh breeze, which we don’t get in most of the cities. Boating was for almost 20 minutes in the natural lake. This place was really very calm as it is not crowded like other places. I drove down from Ooty in almost 30 mins time. And I really enjoyed the driving through the forest highway.
Be careful about monkeys.

Blue , blue and blue , thats the colour of the lake . We reached this place while availing day long trip from TTDC . there were rush for hiring the boat. We grabbed the opportunity of a boat @ Rs. 600 as other people were scouting for fellow travellers to share it. It was a wonder ride . Took panoramic shots on camera on the upper bank of the lake. wonderfull. A must visit place at oory

Do not strain yourself with self peddled ride rather take a 20 minute ride on motar boat. There are seven, eight and ten seaters ride. the distance is longer and the view better.

This place is located just outside ooty and is very scenic. Comparing this lake to the one in main ooty city, its neat and less crowded. Boating rates were bit costly i felt. There is no option for pedal boats :(
A restaurant in the vicinity for a decent cup of tea and options like omlet n maggi.
A decent place to visit.

This is a decent place for boating or hanging around for some time. Not very special though because everyone would have already visited a lots of places like this.
