  • Nyc place to visit with fmly and frnds Awasome.......!!!
  • Great place to enjoy natural beauty.You have to park your vehicles on the side of the road. So very difficult to park and move through parked vehicles. Plese avoid visiting during weekends and holidays. These days are highly congested and you have to wait in long queue for boating. And this place becomes very noisy during these times.
  • Good one...but its recommended to go for a walk instead a boat drive. Nothing else claim to be ozam there...just the lake. Aquarium z a crap there...worstly managed...
  • One of the very scenic places to visit and sit situated in Wayanad.The place is quite green and peaceful and there are options for boating here as well.I think its not maintained properly, the place is crowded though that shouldn't be a case however parking is big trouble here.
  • Visiting hours from 0900 to 1700. Entry fees 20 Rs per head. Boating also available. Enough food stalls are available inside. Wide range of forest products and finished goods available at reasonable rate in shops owned by the District Tourism Promotion Council (DTPC)
