Kodaikanal Lake, Kodaikanal

(4/5 based on 2,200+ reviews on the web)
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.
