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.

  • Its really a beautiful spot in ootty. Very beautiful landscape ,the lake. The boat house established alongside the lake, which offers boating facilities to tourists, is a major tourist attraction in Ooty. The boating was a wonderful experience there. Fantastic climate.
  • Good clean lake for boating. There are many types of boats available, Paddle oats are the most common. Of course, the shops sell a lo of wares and you can purchase a Ooty chocolates too
  • Udhagamandalam and abbreviated as Udhagai and Ooty is a town and municipality in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. It is located 80 km north of Coimbatore and is the capital of the Nilgiris district.
  • 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.
