Trip Planner: Asia / India / Tamil Nadu / The Nilgiris District / Ooty (Udhagamandalam) / Avalanche Lake
At Avalanche Lake, observe surrounding untamed subtropical forests full of blooming orchids, rhododendrons, and magnolias. The lake was created in the 1800s when a sudden destructive flow of snow from the mountains, triggered by glacial movements, covered the area and gradually melted. Now, green verdant woods shelter many species of animal and plant life, including over 2,700 species of flowering plants, as well as wild animals like leopards, tigers, sloth bears, gaurs, and barking deer. The forest department near the lake offers van or jeep tours for eager visitors, with discounts for students and children.

Road towards the lake is closed due to landslide. Forest deptt. is operating bus tour upto this lake. Maybe after march 2020 this place might opened for tourist. more »
Beautiful lake, the problem is that you cannot go closer to it, so you can enjoy its beauty only from afar. I'm sure, i would give 5 star if I could roam freely around to it. But the people knows that we - tourist, do not know how to behave at places like this, so there is a sign that you cannot go closer to the water and many guards are watching out for that.
Getting to this place is horrible because of roads... Though the lake is nice, it is yet to be developed as a tourist spot... If you are planning to go there, go in a group and try to carry some food and water. You won't find anything nearby.
