#5 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.

  • Quite cool place with boating facility. Parking place is a good 1km from the lake. You can get dropped near the lake and the vehicle can come back to park. Lot of monkeys so be cautious and watchful. Recommended not to carry any food articles as they will go behind you for it. Clean lake with a beautiful background of mountain and nature. There is a children play area which is quite good and occupied with kids having gala time.
  • A mind blowing place for me personally as it literally cools down the mind and body and helps relaxing. The atmosphere there is so peaceful and calm and the boating and some fun activities available for the kids are quite attractive. The place is highly recommended if you haven't visited it at least once.
  • Quiet place..not much crowd. Parking almost 500 mtrs away from the lake. Quiet peaceful. Can do boating in the lake and u can also take a stroll along the lake.. There is also a sweet water aquarium ( maintenance below average. Can be avoided)
  • It's very beautiful place. Must visit and enjoy the boat ride. Watch the water lilies bloom over the lake which has a shape of our country Toilets are clean and you can spend about 3 to 4 hours walking along the lake
  • Nice and well maintained place. Can make a boating through lake or just walk through sorroundings of lake. There is many local food and souvenir outlets there and also plenty of other shops for snacks, tea, juices.
