Lake View Point, Kodaikanal

#5 of 11 in Sightseeing in Kodaikanal
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. Put Lake View Point on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Kodaikanal trip itinerary maker.

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.
