“Boating for Couples”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

The crowds in the full season when we all go makes this a drag.But still if you go early or late evening take a boatman guided boat as many cannot enjoy the knee joint leg paining Paddle boats which needs some practice.Fit persons who need solitude can take those. The Quality of lake water has suffered biologically.Still what else can one do in OOTY after you have seen all peak points tea gardens even the annual FLOWER show at Botanical gardens..just do it..your way..paddle or push but Boat..

“Fun for a few hours”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

We visited in middle of the Indian school holidays so the place was packed. We took a pedal boat which around the lake, took the little train for a 5 min ride, and visited the mirror maze, scary jungle, and horror house. All were a bit lame but still good fun, and so cheap it's hard to complain for a few hours entertainment.

Ooty lake is clean and tidy. Maintained by government officials in nice manner. The ride on a pedal boat was memorable.

“Couples - You will enjoy this”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

You can do pedal boating here ... Its nice and they let you do that for half an hour... Ensure that you are not hungry and not tired while you reach here. Choose a Pedal boat... Its easy to learn and navigate it

“Not worth the time.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

So crowded that it takes effort to see the lake ! And then, you figure out it was better when you couldn't see it, after all. The surroundings were really dirty and the boats looked very dodgy, like a tragedy just waiting to happen.
