Around the lake sit a number of handicraft and spice stalls, along with a few shacks where you can pick up snacks after an energy-sapping row on the water. A visit to Pookot Lake represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Kalpetta road trip planning site to plot your vacation.

  • Beautiful lake. Walk around is perfect getaway. Very close to nature ... Must visit.. it was very peaceful and a beautiful experience for kids as well.  more »
  • This is not a must visit place in my opinion. If you have leisure time, yes... surely visit this. It has pedal boating for Rs. 100 per boat of 2 persons for 20 Minutes. Fish spa for Rs . 50 for 10 Min...  more »
  • This lake is unique in the area and has certain fish that cannot be found elsewhere in the state. It is a good place to spend some time walking around. The aquarium needs more exhibits but is worth vi...  more »

  • Pookode lake is a scenic freshwater lake in Wayanad. Besides a children's playground, there is a circular walking track on the circumference of the 13 acres lake - which is perfect for a stroll or a jog, if you don't want to do any of the other paid activities such as boating, aquarium and greenhouse visit, or shopping for spices and handicrafts. You'll find lots of spiders hanging mid-air gracefully on their well-weaved and strong webs. Entry fee is Rs 20 for adults, Rs 10 for children, and Rs 20 for the camera. For boating there are various options from 2 seat paddle boating (Rs 100), 4 seat paddle boating (Rs 200), and rowing boat (Rs 300). Parking area is located 5 minutes walk further away from the entrance.
  • A calm spot. A good one hour walk around the lake. Boating facility is also available. A store to purchase forest items like honey, natural perfume, incense, eateries, soaps etc is present at the entrance. The water in the lake is not well kept or maintained. Best time: evening.
  • This is a peaceful place. Nothing unique about it but you can go here if you want some privacy. There is a beautiful garden around the lake. You can also opt for boating but water is not clean. There is entry ticket. And also be aware of monkeys, they come in group and snatch food items.
  • Decently maintained place. Car parking is little far from the entrance. Walkway around the lake is well maintained. Boating facility is also there. Aquarium is Small but well maintained. Small outlet it there for oils like lemon grass, eucalyptus etc., Tea dust also. Lot of monkeys are there but no trouble.
  • Boating in the lake is the main attraction of this location. Apart from that, every other things are nature's beauty. Foreigners may be attracted to the wellness of the location. But for the domestic tourists, it may not cause any impact. Because these kind of lakes are everywhere in Kerala. But the factor that differentiates Pookkodd lake from others is that larger than most of the lakes and it is covered with green mountains. Tourism Department arranged Park for children in the location. So complete family members can be enjoyed with various aspects of this location. People who loves photography can choose this location as it has wide range of forest beauty.
