For a family it’s always lovely to have some cool time. This lake was overcrowded for a family. Demanded some cleanliness for sure. Although it was cool weather, the need for cover on boats and public places while raining could be a some relief.

the ooty lake area has been considerably reduced.The place has become so commercial that its lost its charm.Half the lake is cordoned off for pedal boats and only half remains for engined boats.There is no place to sit or relax with children

This is a relaxing boat ride with kids park & deer park attached with it and it will not be so crowded if you start early in the morning and you can enjoy the climate by going on a pedal boat

motor boats destroying nature which probably was at its best. There need to be serious measures taken before we lose the beauty. Banning plastic covers isn't sufficient.
