About Ooty Lake, Ooty

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.

Ooty Lake, Ooty Reviews

  • 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.

  • Good lake and a very big one. It seems that the lake is deep. Water is almost ice cold. One should take care of the safety measures like life jacket. A nice place for enjoyment.

  • This has to be one of the Must Visit places in Ooty. There are a lot of things to do here you can spend time relaxing at the lake. Or go boating in groups of 4 or 2, do some street shopping,have quick bites.  There is also a small toy train at this place which takes us for a 5 mins journey which could be a good activity for Kids. If you visit this place during December then you can see weather changing very Rapidly and will definitely enjoy every moment.
