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.

Kodaikanal Lake reviews
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.
