We get to see many such view points in and around Kodai. We felt it was not a great experience travelling 25 kms to visit this lake as we cannot even go 500 mtrs near the lake. Its just another view point. Sheep farm and...More

This is a vast span of water that makes for a beautiful view. Enjoyed the drive to this place and since it is less commercialised, one could enjoy just being in unison with nature

Beautiful natural resource being mismanaged. The authorities are hardly taking any step towards cleanliness discipline and beautification of the asset. You can do boating and cycling. No public washroom facility around, so please be careful.
