#5 of 11 in Nature 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.
