This place is closed until december 2023 due to a massive landslide!
you are allowed to explore only until shola forest. After that access is cut off!

The drive is worth to visit Avalanchi. From the forest checkpost you meed to hire a jeep/bus to proceed further!

Disappointed as i couldn't explore and there was no update even from the state tourism dept!

Locals also say the place is best enjoyed after the rainy season!

The lake is one of the best as far as I have heard among ooty tourist places. We started early from ooty to reach avalanche lake which is around 18-20 kms from Ooty main centre. But luck is not with us, as we are on the way, we had been informed that forest department has closed the road leading to the lake due to landslide. So we retuned without seeing the marvelous lake.

I have some of the basic information which might helpful :
To explore upper bhavani lake one has to reach around 9 or 9.30 AM at the gate of forest office as rush of tourist increases afterward. Tourist has to park their vehicle there and buy entry ticket to board the forest deptt. bus.

Bus tour takes around 2 hours and three point covered are cauliflower forest, Bhavani Amman Temple and Upper Bhavani Lake.

This should be why you should visit Ooty not for crowded busy street hill town.
Go to Avalanche Forest Reserve sharp at 9:30 AM, buy tickets for a forest bus that will take you to a forest drive. Private vehicles are not allowed beyond this point.
You will visit cauliflower shola , bhavani amman temple, upper bhavani lake view point.

Cauliflower shola is very unique forest. They look like they have been cut to look better and even but actually they are natural. Upper Bhavani lake view point is mesmerizing. Must visit.

Don't waste your time roaming around busy Ooty streets.. This is one such "MUST VISIT" places around Ooty,around 70 km from the town. Roads are not that great ,rather very bad at some areas. Start early morning after your breakfast so that you can reach there by 9.30 -10. You can park your vehicles in the base location ,remember very less parking slots,so start early from Otty. There are Jeep's and buses operated by the forest department which will take you inside forest . Awesome weather, Picturesque and breathtaking views. Totally worth driving though all those bad roads :)

After crossing the avalanche road and talking the safari, this is the second stop where the mountain water origins as it flows it creates waterfalls, which makes this a scenic view. The temple is small. A photogenic place and as describes by the guide it looks good in winter (on season).

There's two ways to visit the reservoir - via the dam, or via Avalanchi forest reserve. The second is easier to achieve - reach the forest reserve, and utilise the eco-friendly escorted service to the Upper Bhawani Reservoir. Worth the visit and the drive.
