Ooty Lake, Ooty
(3.2/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
An artificial body of water framed by eucalyptus trees and busy vendors, Ooty Lake remains one of the major tourist attractions in town. Created through a network of artificial dams constructed in 1824, the lake encompasses 26.3 hectares (65 acres). A boathouse in the middle of the lake offers refreshments and water sports rentals. Choose your mode of water transport--paddle, row, or motor boat--and cast off on the lake for a trip away from the crowds. Back on land, a small amusement park invites you in for more entertainment, and small gardens provide shady places to sit and rest. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Ooty Lake by using our Ooty vacation trip planner.

  • Beautiful cool lake. Various types of boats available depend on your requirement. Boat raid gives you freshness and energy. Boat raid takes 30 to 40 minutes for a round. Bit crowded always. There are play zones for kids and adults as well. Also enjoy the raid of Mini Train here
  • Nice place for couples! Various boating options are available which you can enjoy. Best place to visit in evening while in ooty.
