This lake situated in the heart of ooty has different boating opportunities like pedal boat,row boat etc of different seating capacities. It's surrounded with greenery all around.It is this picturesqueness and serenity makes this lake so special. Rowing or pedalling a boat in this serene and beautiful lake with your loved one definitely will be a lifetime memory.

We enjoyed an hour at Ooty Lake, we chose to have a rowing boat with driver and we're on the lake for 30 minutes and had a stroll aroundown for the rest of the time. We did not have to wait for a boat which was good.
