Kodaikanal Lake

The main attraction of Kodaikanal is the Kodaikanal Lake. This is a very big and clean lake and the main activity enjoyed by everyone here is boating. You can also hire bicyles here since the rocky terrain is good for adventure bicycling. Also, the scenic beauty is worth admiring and this is also an apt place for photographers.

Day 4So this was my last day in Kodai, woke up as early as I could and I had already covered most of the places, hence I decided to move on a bit slow pace and enjoy the true essence of the place as if a localite from this place. Roamed around the whole day with my camera, documenting the life in this small town.Here are few things I did:

Kodai Lake is an artificial, star-shaped lake, and is the most famous landmark of Kodaikanal. Sir Vere Henry Levinge, then Collector of Madurai, was instrumental in creating the lake, and is the lake is surrounded by beautiful valleys, boat club, and buildings from colonial period. The 5 kilometers path that skirts the periphery of this lovely lake is a favorite walk for the locals and tourists alike.

Day 3:- 21st October, 2019We kept this day to roam about the city of Kodaikanal. Since most of the places are covered you can walk down to the Kodaikanal lake avail the boating facility for an entire hour or half. There are options for paddle boats and row boats. Paddle boats for 4 is Rs 180 for half an hour. And row boats is Rs 350 for half an hour where you shall be provided with a rower(advised for family). After boating you can borrow cycles which are available nearby and have a pleasant ride around the entire Kodaikanal Lake. A fact about this lake is, it is at the center of Kodaikanal and is a man made lake!
You can book the hotel with breakfast but again if you are a budget traveller then must try a fresh and hot at stalls near Kodaikanal lake they serve hot and fresh Idli Dosa Vada Parotta Pongal and Allo Poori so try going there around 7-9am and please do not miss the tea or coffee at hills coffee.LunchI don't prefer lunch because at this time we will be going for a trek or see some new place maybe have a heavy breakfast and carry some juice and snacks with you for the day.Dinner
