The Ooty Lake is one of the major tourist attractions in Ooty. Spread across a relatively huge area, the lake is surrounded by thick forests on 3 sides. Activities like boating are carried out at the lake. It also has a nice little picnic spot on its bank and boasts of a Deer park as well. A good place to visit with the family.
