It is on our way to Ooty from Bangalore. From the road, it is hardly 1/2 km. Buggies are there. It closes at 5:30 pm. Small manicured garden leads to steps to go down. Entry fee is there. Toilet is there on the top itself. One can hear the water falling on the other side.

Boating was a great experience. Water was clean and cool.
Inspite of the summer heat, the speed boat ride made us feel ecstatic. A lovely experience

We went boating in Pykara lake during our stay in Ooty. There are 3 kind of boats we can take 1. Speed Boat - 1000 Rs for 4 Persons.
2. 8 Seater Boar without roof - 1000 Rupees for 20 mins ride.
3. 10-12 seater boat with rood - 1200 rupess for 20 mins ride.
Only cash is accepted in the bliing counter since there wont be any network in the mobile so they can't accept digital transactions. The boat ride was very good and our kids enjoyed a lot. It was a 22 mins ride and during a ride it was drizzling. The water level is 40 feet depth and boat is very much comfort. They will provide life jacket for all the travellers.

Other than boating in the lake, there isnt much to do. Also, looks more brown than green. Best perhaps to visit right after the monsoons

We visited this place on our way back to Masinagudi from Ooty. The last mile (from the diversion from the Otty-Gudalur road) is terrible. Parking is limited, so many vehicles are parked haphazardly on the narrow road. Easy to get stuck in jam.
The lake is large and beautiful. It has to options for boating. Paddle boats and speedboats. We took a speed boat for 8 people. Got a nice tour around the lake. Really enjoyed it. It would have been nicer if we could see some birds, but overall it was enjoyable and recommended.
There is a food stall and pay and use toilet at the site.

1000 rupees for a 10 mins motor boat (2 or 3 members). It was a great experience especially for my 5 yr old kid.

Very big and clean water. Boating (both paddle boat and motor boat) provide a good option. This place is slightly out of town and hence eating etc is not available. Enjoyable place.
