“Bicyle ride around kodaikanal lake”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We were heading towards the boat house but seeing the untidy condition of the lake decided not to do boating. We hired a few bicycles to take a ride around the lake. Had lot of fun and enjoyed the ride. The bicycle ride was a bit risky as their were vehicles plying around and were honking really loud near you. Kids cannot be left alone on the roads as their is heavy traffic. Took a few pics around the lake and then moved on.

“Serene but Crowded”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

The lake is an awesome place to hangout by, but the crowd makes you think more than twice. Best options - Go cycling / balloon shooting and stay away from the bazaar area.

“Lake Drive :)”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

The lake is a beautiful place .. as it was peak season .. getting a ticket was for boating was difficult . So we chose to ride a cycle around the lake. And the decision proved really nice.The path around the lake was good enough for a cycle ride.We had rented the double cycle for 50 bucks near the lake, single seaters are 20 bucks.

“Peaceful Hill Resort”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

Kodaikanal in Tamilnadu is peaceful hill resort suitable for privacy and peace lovers. located in the centre of 3 Districts of Dindukkal, Madurai and Coimbatore.

There is beautiful lake with a circumference of 6 Kms and cycles are available for hire and you can cycle around the lake breathing the cool unadulterated wind, make a horse ride go for a boating.

Walk down the lovers path over looking the valley.

There are lots of Deluxe and budget hotels of various choice. Luxury resorts are also available.

Government of Tamilnadu's Hotel and resorts are also available.

Good food, lots of fruit varieties are available.

Home made chacholates are the specialty of Kodaikanal.

Best time to visit in October and November to enjoy the best season and avoid summer seasons where there will be lot of crowds and cannot enjoy the joy of hill station

Best place for relaxing, honeymooning and family visits

“Beautiful...Serene !!!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Cannot believe that this is a man-made lake...such beautiful surroundings encompassing 6 kms.

Go for boating...don't hire a shikara or row boat. Hire a paddle boat for an hour and enjoy leisurely. There are ice cream vendors at the brink of lake. Enjoy boating with an ice cream stick in hand.

Don't forget to have your camera batteries charged and have enough space in your camera because you'll be a shutter bug.

Amazing !!!
