“Lovely place”

Pykara Lake and Pykara Falls
Reviewed December 30, 2013

The Pykara lake is a very beautiful lake. Nothing much to do except for the motor driven boating. It is a bit on the expensive side which is Rs 500 for an 8 seater boat. 2 families of 4 can split the amount to enjoy the scenic beauty around the lake.

The Pykara falls is average with about 500m walk to the falls with some photo spots on the way.

The trek to Pykara waterfalls is almost a couple of kilometres. It's gets tiring, but once you reach the falls, it's a serene experience....

the Pykara Lake is big...people who have been to Mattupetty dam in Munnar will find it similar, including the boating facilities. They charge about Rs. 550/- for a 15 minute speed boat ride.

Both the lake and the waterfalls are beautiful sights. One has to walk about 600 meters from the road to the waterfalls, one can drive to the ticket counter at the lake though

This water falls is not at all an attraction.You can find many more beautiful water falls in your locality or else visit St.Catherine water falls in coonoor which is mush more better than Pykara falls.This place is just over rated by taxi - walas for package sake.
Regarding boating in Pykara lake, this is not worth a visit.You have to pay 500 for a 8 -seater boat and you won't be in the boat even for 15 min. The location is beautiful so if you ever go on the Ooty Mysore highway , visit pykara boat house but skip falls
8 Seater boat - Rs.500
Car entry - Rs.15
