Been to lake on all days during our visit to Kodai. First day, we went for a horse ride (Rs.100) for 200 mts but didn't enjoy that ride. Next day, we went for boating that was very nice. The boat man charged an extra Rs.200/= to cover 50% of the lake. This is the best lake i have ever seen in my life.

Definitely cleaner than the lake at Ooty and much lesser crowd, we took one of the pedal boats and had a good 30 minute workout. The lake is in a kind of valley and its a great feeling to go to the middle of the lake in the evening and just drift around there and look at all the hills around. Very serene.
And while there its a good idea to hire the bi-cycles for a lap around the lake for yet another solid 30 minute workout.

After a day log site seeing, 5 PM should be the best time to visit Kodai Lake. The lake is nice and calm. The lake has a driveway around where you can go boating or horse riding or cycling or walking. I sure you can spend some quality time out there with you family and loved once.

Spread across 60 acres, the Kodai Lake is quite huge and ideal for boating. The Boat club offers different boating options from peddle boat to canoe to shikhara. The rowers can be a bit arrogant and demand huge tips.

U will be never bored of this lake....Makes u comeback again and again. You can have lots of fun when you come with family or with friends. Best time is to come in off season when u will have the whole lake for yourself.
