Emerald lake is a short detour enroute to Avalanche lake. However, unlike Avalanche lake, for which the best views are available only after the bus tour, the beauty of Emerald lake is visible from easily accessible view points. While the views are not as breathtaking...More

This is one the beautiful lakes of Nilgiri - away from the bustle of Ooty town. You can spend good family time by the lake, get some food and have a small picnic!

We could go very near to the lake front. The colour looks emerald green in colour. Silent zone indeed.

Beautiful lake, together with the other avalanche lake. This has sunrise views. It’s fun to play skipping stones here.

The drive from Ooty takes you through hilly villages and towns. The last leg of road is tough . There is no infrastructure around when visiting off season

Away from the hustle and bustle of the central Ooty city, this lake is best for couples who love to spend some time in peace. Please carry some snacks/food/water etc. as there are not many eating joints around.

Avoid Rainy Season, the roads are tough and possibility of landslides. Any other season is good. Leave early morning after breakfast and return back to Ooty (or Coonoor) for a late lunch.

Yes indeed. As such personal safety wasn’t an issue, due to monsoon and heavy rains place was rather deserted. By Nov- Def you would have roads in better condition and a resort near lake may also be functional. Take a local... More
