Good to go for a boat ride. Good environment and climate. Less crowded. Beware of monkeys, that will attack if holding food items. Boat trip is bit expensive.

This place is beautiful. It feels like heaven on earth. Beautiful scenario all around the waterfall, mesmerising trees, water flowing all around . This attraction not to be missed at all. A must watch in Ooty.

We had a nice time. The lake was pristine clean, the atmosphere was serene and it was pleasant 20 minutes ride. It cost Rs.880/ boat. There is a speed boat with three seating option with driver, however it cost more, but it looks very thrilling.

Pykara lake waterfall is a beautiful place near Ooty. It is a good place to visit and spend some time with friends and family. The sound of the falls and the view of the lake comforts the eyes.
