Nestled in the Nilgiris, situated near the Mukurthi National Park and around 20 kms from Ooty town, the Pykara Lake is a breathtaking site to behold. The drive to the lake is also a beautiful one. The Paykara waterfalls are nearby and one needs to hike up for around a kilometre to reach the falls. Head out to the lake for some relaxing time with your family. Go boating or picnicking and don’t forget to hog on the pakoras and boiled peanuts available at various stalls around the lake.

Pykara Lake, Ooty Reviews - Write a Review

  • Around 25 kms from Ooty city. The lake is beautiful and drive is also wonderful. But the boat pricing is abrupt and only good for people travelling in groups as boat prices are for 8 people. If you are solo or a couple, need to make a group to book the tickets else pay full price .

  • A normal lake don't waste money on boating & all If you find some horses go for some ride it's better than boating there.

  • Its an awesome place to chill with size being 5 to 6 times bigger than the ooty lake. Please try the speed boats as tey ar the best

  • Very good place to visit & fresh air to breath our cab driver said about this place so v visited and we enjoyed by (venya cabs ooty)

  • It's like a normal Lake, don't waste your money in boating 🛶!
