Water Body · Nature / Park
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.
