Ooty Lake - Review
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. For the curious, the lake was artificially formed between 1823- 1825 by John Sullivan, the founder of Ooty, by damming the mountain streams flowing down the Ooty valley. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Ooty Itinerary 3 Days.

Great place to vist. Make mind blowing near the dam. Their are many merchants near the lake. Be careful when you buy something from they. Few of them only few of them are fraud, not everyone. So be careful when you buy anything from there. Those who enjoy nature can enjoy the beauty. Beautiful weather is here on season
Don't expect it a peaceful place, specially on weekends(crowded). A long lake surrounded by a lot of greenery. If you love boating, you can do paddling, rowing or go for a motorboat ride. Eatables are available with few shops for street shopping. Few rides and fun games are also available for kids and adults both. Parking is available for both 2 & 4 wheels. The fresh air and the scenic beauty can be enjoyed. Please keep the nature clean. Peace✌
One of the prime tourist attractions in ooty. In Rs 570 you can book entire motor boat and also you can share with other people max to 8 people. Timing is 8:30 AM to 6 PM. Nice scenic location during the ride. It has got two entrance. Parking is paid.
The scenery is beautiful. A lake surrounded with all greenery and lush greens but the only thing that bothers everyone who visit here is the lake water. It’s very dirty and authorities here really care less about this tourist attraction. Also there is boating in this lake so you can take a peddle boat and take a round of the lake.
if you visit ooty.this place is a must go..u have to survive huge queue in order to book your boating ride.but meanwhile you can dig into some delicious ice creams there. the best time to visit is i. the month of may so that you can also encounter the flower show at the botanical garden. they charge aroumd 150rs per person foe boating.wear your life jackets for safety.enjoy.
