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.

  • I think it just a view point included by the cab associations to increase the number of attractions. This is a tourist trap. Avoid it.  more »

  • Part of Kodaikanal Valley tour. Also known as Lake view point. As the name suggests you can view the lake from an elevated point in the town. Good for clicking photos with Lake and town in background.
  • 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.
