The lake is around 35 km from main town kodaikanal, one needs to get special permission from Tamil Nadu Forest department to visit the lake. A good experience of Forest, plane your visit to be near the checkpoint around 10 am - early visitors if they are lucky can view bisons

Need to get prior forest department permission to enter this place. So visit tourism department office for seeking permission. Not crowded coz it is a restricted area to very few on any given day.

One must visit here - firstly, it is not over crowded unlike other sightseeing options as only 25 cars per day are allowed a pass. Secondly, the sound of the water & the hills together make a beautiful combination for a wonderful evening. Also, the area is huge, you can sit around for hours. You are supposed to leave the...

You need to take permission from forest dept to take your own vehicle.We couldn't get it and used their vehicle. Excellent place. Unfortunately, there is a huge traffic these days, especially on weekends. It took around 3Hrs to cover 20 km for us.

You feel like you are in Switzerland.. only place where after coming you feel like you've justified your entire trip by coming here. Although it was tough to get the gate pass before entering into berigam lake. Nice place.. must visit.

The route to this place is very good - drive inside the thick forest and some breathtaking view points. The 5 min walk from vehicle parking to the lake is awesome! The entire valley like place is very clean and scenic.
