“Good Place to Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

One must visit Pykara Lake & do the boating. It is excellent. The pricing is on the higher side for the boating but worth for atleast 8 persons group.

“Only lake allowed for tourist inside a reserved forest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

Pykara lake,yes,it is not close to ooty.but it is worth travelling inside the deep jungle to reach this place.This is the only lake where tourists are allowed for visit and boating which is present inside a well protected reserved forest.The travel takes some time to reach there,but you can be sure the drive will be exciting.there were tall trees and wide open landscapes with grasslands.you may even find grazing horses,cows and lambs in these grasslands.the view of pykara lake is scenic and you can enjoy a good boat ride.I should mention that you can even go in the boat amidst rains,as these boats are covered with tops.Food is available in the canteen present near boat house.Taste of food is quite decent.One must remember that,this zone is a strict plastic free zone,so do not carry any plastic carry bags.
