A water body with neat clean and lesser crowd meant we had fun. Boating on this water body was refreshing, heartening and enjoyable for its serenity, fresh cool air. Lovely place and a must visit when around.

Lovely lake. A must visit place for tourists. A place for taking lovely pictures and selfies 😂😂. I just loved the combination of trees and lake together

Very good boat house, well and cleanly maintained. Beautiful sight seeing. Pollution free. Boating charges little higher than Ooty boat house

Nice boating in the lake. Do reach early to avoid the crowds. Wearing a jacket helps as it does get chilly during boating.

A must visit place. Clean water and lot of greenery. We tried the speed boats and had great fun. Took extra rides again.

A better place to go boating with your family than the Ooty lake which is chaotic. Tamilnadu Tourism runs a boat house which ensures no yours are around. The rates are fixed and a twenty minute ride in an 8 seater costs INR 770-00 ....More

Beautiful lake with a gorgeous 360 degrees view. We had a fabulous family time here. The boating experience was memorable too. Would love to be back here soon.

The lake & boats are well maintained with amazing scenic view of nilgiri hills. Parking is bit of chaos, as we could not find any parking assistance, i struggled to remove my car due to car parked at the tail of my car. Thanks

Two options - If you are adventerous enough, take a left from theppakadu and take the masinagudi route, very scenic but narrow and steep ghats!! Via gudalur is a sedate option but both are good roads!!
