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.

Ooty Lake, Ooty Reviews

  • 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✌

  • It's such a beautiful and tranquil place. It's a nice place to visit with your family. This place is very clean too. And it's very famous among the travellers. It's a must visit for everyone whoever visits Ooty. You can click some amazing photographs here because the scene here is awesome

  • Good place for boating. Nothing much special. Little over hyped. Both pedal and motor boats are available. Lot of small shops and stalls are good option. Enough space for parking. Some more fun activities in and around the boat house.

  • Ooty Lake one of the most famous Old spots in India... Captured too many times in movies too... Beautiful place for boating... Please have time sufficient time for the place... As u have to be in que in 2-3place to finally get the boat..

  • Nothing special here. Just a lake surrounded by greenery. Sure, it's scenic place but boating is not special either. Waiting time is too much. Skip this one if you don't want to waste your time and visit other places in Ooty.
