Enjoy a peaceful boat ride on Kodaikanal Lake, a manmade lake nestled in the lush, forested hills of the Kodaikanal hill station. A popular hangout spot, the lake is renowned for its star shape, placid azure waters, and verdant surroundings. Rent a rowboat and set off on the calm water, take a relaxing walk, or bike around the lake perimeter. You can enjoy a picnic on the scenic lake shore, or admire the "silver cascade," a waterfall formed by the outflow of the lake water. Put Kodaikanal Lake on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kodaikanal vacation route planner.

  • A visit to Kodaikanal is not complete without visiting this lake. Went for a nice cycle ride, which is available at affordable rates for rent. Nice snacks available with not to forget the boat rides. ...  more »
  • Good place to while away an hour or two in Kodai. Just paddle the boat and engage in some talks / music. 
  • The boating is really enjoyable. The peacock shaped boats rowing itself through the clouds on the water is a heavenly feeling but this can be enjoyed mostly in winters.
