Pykara falls is 19 km from Ooty. The river has a dam and power plant. The falls, about 6 km from the bridge on the main road, are best in July, but they are also worth visiting from August to December. There is a forest rest House at Pykara and Dam is added attractions to the tourists. On the way to Pykara you can even stop in 6th mile & 9th Mile (shooting spots) and have nice photographs. This is a beautiful spot surrounded by greenery and it will help you to relax. However, we are not allowed to play in the water near by the falls.

Pykara lake is a nice place to visit. The boating in Pykara lake is really a good experience though we hardly get 10 to 20 mins of ride. It is not a crowded place and we can enjoy the ride.

A beautiful lake surrounded by greenery...Its serenety is soothing and so relaxing..Ideal for a morning stroll around the lake. If you are lucky, you might end up sighting deers, rabbits around.
the typical feature of the lake is it changes its colors as the day progresses..The reflection and intensity of the sun light compounded by the pines surrounding it makes it a magical experience. Ideal time to visit would be from Dec till feb..
