“Good long walk”

Just the right distance for a gentle long walk, looking at the old British bungalows. There is a very good tea shop three-quarters of the way around, at the perfect spot. But don't go there on a public holiday, as the bogans invade it.

Please see the pics to have a feel of the place. My wife and me were there this month and we just got what we expected from the place. People we friendly . The tea shop which says keep calm and drink tea was great. Weather was chill. Perfect place to relax . Not too crowded.

Walked around the lake early morning found it relatively quiet and a good enjoyable walk.

Enjoyed a 40 minute boat excursion with our own rower, who was very pleasant without being intrusive and very grateful for the business.

Saw plenty of bird life both on the lake and on the surrounding banks.

A pity that some of the middle aged and younger male tourists do not show respect for either the environment or others who wish to enjoy it whilst on the lake.

They seem to think that urinating on the banks and throwing their rubbish into the water and along the banks is good for the wildlife habitat. They also seem to think that they should scream and shout at anything that moves.

We enjoyed the boating with a tint of fear in mind. We had to wait half an hour to get a boat as it was holidays.

Wonderful time in Kodaikanal. Best thing to visit in Kodiakanal is this lake.
All other things are also good but nothing can match this.Very beautiful. Will visit again and this time only for Lake and Botanical garden.
Guys if going there then just enjoy this lake and cycling around this lake.
