#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.

  • 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.
  • Nice and clean lake. Row boats and pedal boats are available. Entry fee for adults is ₹20 for kids is ₹10. There is a fishing farm where you can watch different types of fishes in aquarium (fee ₹5). Fish spa is available for ₹50. Slides are available for kids. Green, calm place to relax.
  • Well I was totally disappointed at the state of the lake. There's lot of underwater growth,the lakes very dirty. Even the pedestrian path were not clean. Had to walk for almost 1 kilometre or less from the parking area. If there are aged or people with knee problems,you might better drop them near the entrance of the lake and come back to the parking. The person at the parking won't suggest anything. It's better you just drop them there. Just hope they'll improve on cleanliness.
  • Pookode lake is a scenic freshwater lake in Wayanad. Besides a children's playground, there is a circular walking track on the circumference of the 13 acres lake - which is perfect for a stroll or a jog, if you don't want to do any of the other paid activities such as boating, aquarium and greenhouse visit, or shopping for spices and handicrafts. You'll find lots of spiders hanging mid-air gracefully on their well-weaved and strong webs. Entry fee is Rs 20 for adults, Rs 10 for children, and Rs 20 for the camera. For boating there are various options from 2 seat paddle boating (Rs 100), 4 seat paddle boating (Rs 200), and rowing boat (Rs 300). Parking area is located 5 minutes walk further away from the entrance.
  • Nice lake having nature surrounded. In season, you have to wait for min 1 hour for boating. But you can spend your days nicely. Having large space for parking but is far away from point.
