4.1
#2 of 18 in Nature in Ooty (Udhagamandalam)
Discover Toda settlements and the wildlife habitat around Pykara Lake, where you can see how varied plant and animal life flourishes in and around a reservoir of water created to support a hydro-electric power project. Follow the river that flows over series of waterfalls until your reach the last two, with heights of 55 m (180 ft) and 61 m (200 ft). Book a room at a boat house on the lake for that authentic experience and a chance to explore at your own pace.

  • Very nice waterfall, nice scenic place. Visited in May-2018. I feel best time to visit is after monsoon when more water will be there.  more »
  • A good place that lost its charm due to crowd. However, if you can't resist, visit it on the way to Gudalur, not worth a special visit.  more »
  • On the way to Ooty from Gudalur, lies this cool lake. It has beautiful boating area. One will always love boating on a clean water, Isn't it.? Must visit.  more »
