Pykara Lake

Located in the main hill station of the Nilgiris which is Ooty, this is a lean and large lake. People come here for site- seeing, photography or boating usually. Other than this, picnics are a common site here because spending fun time with the family amidst such natural beauty is sheer happiness. There is also a boat house here from where you can hire boats. You get an option when it comes to the type of boats. You can anything from speedboats to the normal ferry boats. The latter can usually carry about 8 persons which means the whole family can enjoy a boat trip together.

After breakfast, we checked out from the homestay and proceeded to Ooty. On the way we visited Pykara lake ( from Coorg- 6 hrs).Pykara lake is a natural lake with a huge amount of water & pine trees surrounding. One will love boating in this lake. Pykara falls near to the lake is a superb place for photography.

9th mile: The mesmerizing view of green meadows stretching out against the higher peaks, which are covered with floating clouds. The changing colors of sky around sunset, blows off your mind. This is an ideal spot where you can sit down and get washed away with the sweet breeze. (These views are somewhat similar to Switzerland).

It's a river near ooty - mysore road. About 20km from ooty. Name of the place is also called pykara. A small temple is also there. Some group is considering this river as a sacred one. Water is so cool. And also it's such a nice photo point.3. Kodanadu View Point

En routing lush green forest we reached Pykara lake . Serene environment , majestic view , chilly weather with a hot coffee - absolutely intoxicating . On the way back to Ooty , it started raining cats and dogs . We had no choice but to stop in a dense forest area and luckily found a tapri where a lady was selling sweet corn . We took a halt over there , had some corns and waited for rain to stop . After sometime we started off again to Ooty .
