An artificial body of water framed by eucalyptus trees and busy vendors, Ooty Lake remains one of the major tourist attractions in town. Created through a network of artificial dams constructed in 1824, the lake encompasses 26.3 hectares (65 acres). A boathouse in the middle of the lake offers refreshments and water sports rentals. Choose your mode of water transport--paddle, row, or motor boat--and cast off on the lake for a trip away from the crowds. Back on land, a small amusement park invites you in for more entertainment, and small gardens provide shady places to sit and rest.

  • 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.
  • This lake has boating, self pedal or motor boat is what they call, but it's slow. Charged separately for different rides. Good time pass and enjoyment with family. Has good parking facilities and food options(not recommended)
