#4 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.

  • Decently maintained place. Car parking is little far from the entrance. Walkway around the lake is well maintained. Boating facility is also there. Aquarium is Small but well maintained. Small outlet it there for oils like lemon grass, eucalyptus etc., Tea dust also. Lot of monkeys are there but no trouble.
  • Boating in the lake is the main attraction of this location. Apart from that, every other things are nature's beauty. Foreigners may be attracted to the wellness of the location. But for the domestic tourists, it may not cause any impact. Because these kind of lakes are everywhere in Kerala. But the factor that differentiates Pookkodd lake from others is that larger than most of the lakes and it is covered with green mountains. Tourism Department arranged Park for children in the location. So complete family members can be enjoyed with various aspects of this location. People who loves photography can choose this location as it has wide range of forest beauty.
  • This is one of the place to be visited in wayanad. One of the old place and close to the city. Boating is one of the main attraction but it's nothing special for any tourist. Good place for family and time can be well spent over here. Apart from this, nothing special to be mentioned.
  • A decent maintained place. Lake is average sized. The walk way around the lake is really nice. It is constructed with a minimum interference with the nature. You can not see wild animals here. There is also a fresh water fish aquarium in the park. Rayeries and Food is available. Vehicle parking soace is also available.
  • Fantastic tourist place. You could take a walk around and you have lake on one side and greenery in other side. Most of the lake part covered by Lotus. Boating is also available.
