“Kodaikanal Lake”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Everything is fine but nobody is using the life jacket though it is available. Even the authorities do not make it compulsory. If proper awareness is created about the importance of wearing life jackets the whole experience will be very save for all the people visiting the lake.

“Lake inside city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Its just a lake inside the city. Not good if crowded. Walking around the lake in the evenings is very pleasant. Boating, cycles on hire and horse riding. Kids would enjoy.

“Highlight of Kodai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Relatively Pristine. Both boating in the lake and cycling around it a memorable experience.

The Kodai boat club seems to have better facilities. Just outside it, are numerous places to hire bicycles. I was afraid I am not fit to cover the 6km+ circling road but it was a pleasure and quite easy.

“cycling around the lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Better to go around the lake in the morning or in the forenoon for cycling or walk. In the afternoon crowd may grow.
