Pykara Lake Boating Overview

Location: Pykara Lake, Ooty
Timings: 20 minutes (Open from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM)

Rising from the Mukurthi peak, north of Ooty, the Pykara River gives birth to a series of fine waterfalls and the large Pykara Lake. Situated amidst a lush green shola forest, Pykara Lake is formed as a result of the dam and power plant constructed on the river. While the drive towards the lake is an idyllic experience in itself, the boating inside is no less joyful.

The Pykara Lake Boating has several motorboats ranging from 8-seaters to 15-seater and if you’re looking for a thrilling ride instead, you can take the small speedboats which adds charm to this little panoramic spot among the hills.

The greens around, thick forests at the shores and the pines in the backdrop, all of it create mesmerizing atmosphere. At Pykara Lake and Falls Ooty, you have everything you need to enjoy a day out with your friends/family or enjoy a solitary nature walk. Whether you’re a nature lover, photographer or a newly married couple, you shouldn’t miss this attraction near Ooty.
