Berijam Lake - Review

The more serene and blessed cousin of the Kodai lake, Berijam will take your breath away with it’s sheer peace and quiet. This is the beauty of the lake; no boats, no crowds, no trash.

There are plenty of opportunities to get lost in thought and stare disbelievingly at this charming lake.

Berijam Lake, Kodaikanal Reviews

  • Very good for all ages. Way to the lake is really wonderful. God's magnificent majesty can be well appreciated

  • Must visit in Kodaikanal...peaceful and calm... Trip to this place will cover an awesome drive in the forest. This place is less crowded due to the limit in number of vehicles permitted in forest zone in a day. You will need special permission to use your vehicle inside this zone .. You can book a ride through local travelling agents, they will take you through mini bus or private car. Through mini bus you will get max of 1hr time and will cover few other points on the way..

  • Definitely not worth it. U have to walk for 1 km and at the end u get to see a dirty lake. There's nothing to see here.

  • This is a good place to visit with family. But, the approach is very bad. It takes a minimum of 3 hours to reach here om any day. There is only one road which is one way and badly managed. All tourist vehicles have to go through this road only. One needs to take permission from forest department for the vehicle. The forest office works from 8.30 to 5. The fee is Rs.50 per vehicle. Plastic is not allowed. But, neither police nor people show any responsibility. So, plastic is thrown everywhere. All vendors sell in plastic. There are toilets provided though very ugly. The local police try to earn on this cheaply. Rs.5 per person. The location is awesome. Worth spending 3 hours if you ignore all the problems mentioned above. There is no boating. It's just a scenic beauty.

  • Peaceful and calm lake but just a normal lake like any other in any other places. Scenery is good.
