“Good lake! Nice boating!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Also must see the pykara dam. The lake is located in middle of the forest and so, is very serene! But at the same time it is a bit outside the main ooty town!

“boat ride”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

boating in rains in Pykara lake is beautiful. Recommend more than the Ooty boathouse. Though rides for a small group of people can be pricey and sharing with other people can be helpful.

“Off from City and Serene”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Pykara lake is a serene place and not crowded in comparison with lake in Ooty city. But lot of rush during flower show season and weekends. You can take a break if you are on a Ooty Wayanad Trip

“Beautiful Nice Experience.”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Ooty is known for its scenic beauty and Pyakara lake is one of its known jewel. The lake is definetley a break from the usual chaos and crowd but with more and more tourist pouring in , the fear of it becoming one of various other commercialised places looks inevitable.

We went in for Speed boat which costed us INR 550/- for a 10 minutes ride. Quite a hefty charge for such a small duration of time , i must add, but the experince was good. Also they have got only 3 speed boats available, so during peak time, you may have to wait for around 45mins to an hour for your turn.You can opt for shared boats which will cost you roughly around 100 bucks per person, but i strongly recommend to go for speed boat.
