Enjoy a peaceful boat ride on Kodaikanal Lake, a manmade lake nestled in the lush, forested hills of the Kodaikanal hill station. A popular hangout spot, the lake is renowned for its star shape, placid azure waters, and verdant surroundings. Rent a rowboat and set off on the calm water, take a relaxing walk, or bike around the lake perimeter. You can enjoy a picnic on the scenic lake shore, or admire the "silver cascade," a waterfall formed by the outflow of the lake water.

  • You can hire bicycles to go around the lake. It is a large lake, and it will take quite a while to go around it. You can also go boating.  more »

  • Enjoyed our weekend with family, Kid's and friends. Boating was an amazing experience with kids. Spent 2hrs in boating. Enjoyed the climate, with ice-cream and good snacks while peddling. Nice views and we had good clicks of photographs. Overall an amazing experience.
  • Riding boat in the lake is awesome. enjoyed the gently breeze and drizzles. This lake is very big. the surrounding area looks a lot more beautiful when seen from the boat inside the lake. Some areas of the lake has fowling smell.
