The drive is scenic. The boat trip on the lake was so -so but the surroundings were very pretty. This place has food and toilet facilities available.

Good place to visit ..we rented bicycles and it was an awesome experience, The ride to the lake itself is long ..one can always book a cab or rent a bike but to enjoy the serene beauty bicycle are the best ... we were a group a six friends so the ride through the terrain was excellent .

Very beautiful lake, very clean blue water. The location is bit far from ooty and then from main road, you can not travel to that by walk but if you have your own vehicle, its a must must do in ooty. Unfortunately when we reached it was raining so couldn't boat but the view itself was mesmerizing.

While in ooty, you must go to Pykara Lake - preferably on a weekday - nice views and a nice road side shanty with north indian cooks which serves nice Chinese. Pykara closes at 5, so you must start from ooty by 3:15

We visited Pykara lake on a very windy,cold,and, rainy day,but it was a worth drive all the way from Coonoor to see this place.Lake was full of water and looked beautiful among the huge trees.A very serene,tranquil, and peaceful place.Boat ride is a must,to see the inner end of the lake.I have a request to the visiting tourist not to throw their empty food packaging and garbage in the lake,as it is our natural treasure and we all have the responsibility to keep it clean.
