Berijam Lake, Kodaikanal

(3.8/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Take a picnic meal to the shores of Berijam Lake, a freshwater reservoir formed by a dam constructed in 1867. You'll need to obtain an entry permit before you attempt the scenic drive to the lake, but once there, you can explore the surrounding protected area, home to elephants, bison, and deer. Spend you time walking or hiking, making some striking photographs, and soaking in the picturesque forest-fringed lake view. Using our custom trip planner, Kodaikanal attractions like Berijam Lake can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
