Kundala Dam Lake, Munnar

#1 of 15 in Nature in Munnar
Head out onto Kundala Dam Lake in a rental boat and enjoy the fresh air and natural scenery. The lake has a lower water level from March to May, but during the rest of the year makes a prime location for boating.

Locals know the paths, including lesser-known gems, making it worthwhile to hire a local guide.
