Pookot Lake, Kalpetta

2.8
#4 of 16 in Parks in Kalpetta
Take a trip to Pookot Lake, an impressive natural landmark offering a number of activities and attractions. Surrounded by hills and tall trees, and covered in parts by a blanket of water lilies, the natural freshwater lake offers a perfect setting for a boat ride out onto the water. 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.

  • This lake is more like a picnic spot. The lake is quite small and on the way from Kalpetta to Neelimala viewpoint. There are few activities such as boating but for an outside tourist it does not make much sense to visit this place as such places can be found in many tourist places in India. However the forest cover is good around this area and it is good for an evening stroll.
  • It is one of the oldest tourist spot in Wayanad. A very well maintained lake where you can do pedal boating. There is also fish spa. There are few eateries and refreshment shops inside. The place is crowded on holidays and summer vacations. Parking facility is poor and they need to maintain that.
  • A good place to visit in Wayanad.You should have a walk around the beautiful pathway around the lake as its a very awesome experience.
  • Pookode lake was not much interesting for the youth but yes it is a good place to bring children and a very good place for families
  • One of the old and famous tourist place in wayanad, but the area is not at all taken care properly by the authorities. Even though they are charging in the name of car parking (500m away from the area), lake entrance fee , boating fee etc they didn’t even think to keep this place clean and tidy. For the boating they are charging up to Rs350 for 4 people and still they are using the old stinky life jackets. Tourists are only approaching this area only by word of mouth publicity and gets disappointed. Hope one Day the authorities will open up their eyes to make it a better place.
