This is the prime attraction of Ooty and is an artificial lake which was constructed by John Sullivan in the year 1824. This was made by making dams run by the waters from the river which flowed down to the valley region. The main motive was to help fishermen by making fishing ferries out here.

Placed near the Railway station, right behind the Central Bus Stand of Ooty, the very popular Ooty Lake is an L-shaped lake with a length of 2.75 km. You can take a Boat ride from 8 AM - 6 PM which offers the spectacular view of the lakeside misty forests. From the middle of the lake, the views of the surrounding forests capture one’s imagination.

The first point which we covered was Ooty Lake. The lake is surrounded by Eucalyptus trees. The lake in the front was enough to bring calmness.
