So on our third day, we were on a lake sojourn. We had a thing for calm freshwaters. The first thing we had was a small trek on top of a hill which gave us a full view of the Nilgiris. We also saw the abandoned huts of the 'Toda' tribes. We spent about half an hour on the hill top and got down. When we were about to go to our next destination we found that our two wheeler was punctured and had to go back for 10kms, change the tube of the tyre and head back. Our next destination was the Pykara lake. And Ooty tourism also offers boating in this place. This is really big and has clean turquoise green water and the forest around calm you and soothes you so much. After that our next destination was the Pykara waterfalls that is located pretty near the lake. Since there wasn't enough water it was not a good experiance. It mostly comprised of rocks and the water was so minimum. So the next destination was Emerald lake. It is situated in a place called Emerald and is untouched by tourists. It is so serene and is a wonderful location to just sit and watch time fly by and bask in the cool climate that Ooty has to offer. We came to know that the avalanche lake will be closed after 3PM, which was our next destination, as told by a local. So we had to return and had our dinner in Sidewalk cafe which served pretty decent food.
The best part about the whole trip was not the lakes we visited. The roads, the view, the little little things that come across during our road trip in Ooty was the best of all. We stopped so many times just to see the view, the wild life, the small lakes, the road covered with trees on either sides. It was truly amazing.
