Ooty is best to visit during monsoons. This lake is very beautiful with boating facilities which will cost around 700-800 for 8 people. Must visit, better than Ooty lake as the water is clean.

Boating was good. You should try speed boating if you have time (waiting time is approximately 3 0 minutes). There was no water in Pykara falls.
