Berijam Lake, Kodaikanal Reviews

  • 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..

  • As a part of the Inside Forest Sightseeing Tour package, the bus stops at the road by the lake. This lake is used to supply drinking water to the surrounding areas. The sight is very calm and relaxing. The road is without any traffic and you can click photos and enjoy the lake view from the road. The lake is fenced off and entry into the lake is restricted.

  • Nice place. But it is very crowded when I have visited it last December. You can rent bicycles here on hourly basis and ride around the lake. There are many shops in this surroundings where you can buy chocolates, woolen items etc...

  • Excellent place for relaxation .. We need Forest Department permission to reach here …. Loved every minute of time spent here

  • we had to drive for nearly an hour from Kodaikanal Town to reach here and the drive was very much peaceful considering that I dozed off. the place has a beautiful landscape and you get the earthly feel. it's worth the drive and time. Have more photos and I'll upload them soon
