“Quiet and breathtaking views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2014 via mobile

First you need a entry pass. Any local taxi operator will arrange that.

Berijam lake is the last spot in the route. It has four or five view points which are breathtaking provided the mist and fog shows mercy. It is not as crowded as other spots.
Do not hurry. Enjoy the view and climate.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2014

In the en route there is a spot called Berijam lake view. Just stand there facing the lake and close your eyes. If feels so good, i just wanted to stay for ever. It cannot be said in word just go an experience it.

“Serene beauty”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

The way to Berijam lake and the lake itself is feast for the eyes, only being an eyewash when you realize that you are not allowed to go any further near the lake and that the tour ends quick and soon. Located in a forest reserve where you would need to pay around 120 bucks per person to have a tour of Berijam lake along with other attractions on the way. The total tour time remains 1 hour or a bit more, depending on how much time you spend on stopovers. The lake at the end is pristine and clean with marvelous view around it. Kodaikanal is quite and beautiful but the visit to this lake makes the memory of Kodaikanal more pleasant. Must visit location in town, it is.
