Lake View Point, Kodaikanal

3.6
Enjoy a panorama of Kodaikanal Lake at Lake View Point, an observation station overseeing the lake and parts of the city. Lush green slopes of the surrounding hills and valleys with misty mountain peaks in the background provide a scenic view of the area. Use telescopes on the spot to get a closer view of the star-shaped lake in the distance. Get a masala tea, or some souvenirs and handicrafts from stands opposite the station and go directly to the lake. To find out how to plan a trip to Kodaikanal, use our trip itinerary maker.

  • In Kodaikanaal one of the best place for visit. Here we can see nice views of lake
  • Upper Lake View is 3.2 Km from Coaker's Walk on the way to Green Valley View and provides a magnificent view of the Kodaikanal Lake.This place can be visited during day to have glimpse of star shaped lake. During evening this place is completely deserted. This point is near to Solar Observatory. And after visiting solar observatory this place can be visited. There are few shops around as other places in Kodaikanal Except view of lake nothing special about this place. Worth visiting. Address: Upper lake View Road
  • Nice place to visit. A beautiful natural view you will get.
  • The spot provides you a perfect elevated view of the kodaikanal lake. Its a bit crowded at mornings , but the nights it gives you the view of the lake dazzling in light . You get a bit of a bird acivity too.

Where to stay in Kodaikanal

Unsurprisingly, the most upmarket accommodations in Kodaikanal sit by the lake. Offering extensive views of the central water features and the hills rolling off into the horizon, the rooms in such establishments usually come with a nice set of amenities including onsite spas, restaurants, and pools. Shoestring travelers that want a central location can opt for simple hotels in the town center to the east, while those wanting to get out of town altogether will find a few scattered hotels along the main roads, as well as rental bungalows in secluded spots.
